Parking lots are a vital part of every public building. When it comes time to invest in new ones or resurfacing old ones, the investment is rather large. You're not just beautifying your property when you have your parking lot paved - you're also increasing safety for both drivers and pedestrians!
Specializing in new parking lot installation, Shamblin Paving is a premier parking lot paving company in the industry. Installing a new parking lot is more than just laying down some asphalt. There are multiple steps to ensure that the parking lot will last, each with its own set of considerations and challenges.
Installing a new parking lot seems like an easy task—just lay out the blacktop or concrete, and you're done! It's not quite as simple, though; before construction can begin, there needs to be space cleared for it in accordance with city zoning ordinances, drainage issues need to be addressed so water flows freely across it without pooling on top during heavy rain, while also maintaining safety throughout installation process due to potential hazards posed by such work areas.
Asphalt overlays offer many benefits compared with full replacements, such as being more cost-effective due to their low initial price tag.
If the subbase of your parking lot is in good condition, an overlay might be a viable solution. Parking lots that have minor cracks and fissures but not affecting the subgrade are a good candidate for overlays.
A new layer of asphalt will be applied over the existing parking lot in order to improve its conditions. The surface is cleaned and then coated with tack for better bonding with the existing asphalt. Areas may also need to be milled due to drainage or grade issues beforehand, but we can handle that too!
Asphalt overlays are the perfect solution for those wanting to save time and money without giving up quality! They last 8-15 years, cost less than removal costs, yet require only a fraction of the installation time.
It might be time to have your parking lot in Batavia replaced with new asphalt if it's plagued by alligator cracking, deep potholes, or significant drainage issues. Often, these are signs of a subbase that needs repairing and will only get worse as you try to repair the cracks on top of them.
The benefits of a full parking lot replacement are worth the additional time and cost. With proper maintenance, your new parking lot should last 20-30 years!
Sealcoating your parking lot every 2-3 years will result in a longer life span and an improved appearance. The sealant provides a durable, safe finish covering the entire surface of the asphalt and makes it look brand new again!
Sealcoating asphalt is an inexpensive way to maintain your parking lot and keep it looking its best. Asphalt becomes light gray due to the drying out of the binder under ultraviolet light. Ultra Violet light causes the binders in the asphalt to dry out, turning it from a rich black into a light gray. Binders dry out, and asphalt becomes rigid and inflexible.
Asphalt with flexibility has a higher chance of cracking, causing other maintenance issues. It also helps the pavement resist cracking, leading to other issues with maintenance, such as potholes in the road.
Sealcoating is a quick and easy way to fill in minor surface damage. It's also a great way to protect your parking lot from corrosive automotive chemicals, which can eat away at asphalt over time if left untreated.
A well-striped parking lot can maximize space, ease traffic flow, and protect pedestrian foot traffic. Faded or missing handicap markings can create ADA compliance and liability issues. Shamblin Paving the best parking lot striping contractor can help ensure your parking lot meets Federal and Illinois ADA requirements.
There are many hazards to both pedestrians and vehicles when it comes to potholes. There is a lot of damage done by small ones, which will then turn into larger problems if they're not fixed in time. Spot patching is the best option as this increases longevity on parking lots while also being more affordable than full paving. The patches should last the remaining length of your parking lot's lifetime. Shamblin Paving has asphalt maintenance solutions to help maximize the lifespan of your parking lot.
Cracks in asphalt pavement are not only unsightly. They can also become dangerous as small cracks turn into larger ones. With annual crack-filling using commercial grade hot rubber sealant to keep out water, weeds, and grass from growing, among other materials.

Sealcoating asphalt driveways is an opportunity to keep your driveway looking fresh and new. It's a process that seals the surface, fills small cracks and voids as protection against the elements like sunlight, water, and automotive chemicals, which will gradually cause it to harden up if left unprotected. If not sealed periodically (2-3 years), then over time, you can expect serious damage.
