An asphalt parking lot can last for up to 20-30 years if adequately maintained with sealcoating and asphalt repairs.
Installing a new parking lot is a large and costly project. There are many details that need to be addressed before a new parking lot can be installed.
The process for installing an asphalt parking lot is not too complicated. Here are the steps needed:
Sometimes, overlays are the best option for surface distress due to minor cracks.
Asphalt overlays provide both structural support for the parking lot as well as provide support for heavier loads. Installing an asphalt overlay will improve the surface's slope and smoothness.
The average life span of a parking lot is 20-30 years. However, this number can very greatly based on the traffic and ongoing maintenance of the parking lot. If the subbase has become damaged by deep potholes, deeps cracks or alligator cracking, this is a sign you might need to do a full parking lot replacement.
A full replacement is the same as a new installation, except the old asphalt is removed and repairs are done to the subbase.
Sealcoating your parking lot is a great way to protect your asphalt from the harsh effects of weather and chemicals. The sealant also helps to prevent cracking of the pavement due to thermal expansion or contraction. Your lot should be sealcoated every 2-3 years to keep your asphalt in the best condition.
Sealcoating asphalt slows down the oxidation of the asphalt. Oxidation causes the binders to dry out and causes the asphalt to become brittle. The binders in asphalt are what helps the pavement to maintain its strength and elasticity. Sealcoating also provides protection for any small surface cracks that may have formed on your lot through the natural aging of the asphalt.
Faded and missing parking lot stripes and handicap markings can be dangerous. It is essential that parking lots have both strips and the ADA-required markings for disabled drivers so everyone is safe and to limit your liability.
A well-striped parking lot can be organized to maximize space, ease traffic flow, and keep drivers and pedestrians safe. At Shamblin Paving, parking lot striping is our specialty!
Potholes are created by cracks in the asphalt that are deep enough to allow water into the crack. The water seeps under the asphalt and freezes, causing it to heave up in one area. This process repeats over time--ice-melt from snow or rain melts away then refreezes--causing the pothole deeper and larger each year until eventually, they become too large for patching.
To fix a single pothole, we will cut out a square around the pothole. If there are any issues with the subbase, they will be addressed at that time. New asphalt will be laid in the hole and then compacted. A properly repaired pothole should last the remainder of the parking lot or driveway.
A crack in asphalt pavement is an ugly sight. But it's not only the eye-sore that should concern you; cracks can also be a safety hazard for those near and on them, like vehicles or pedestrians.
Constant exposure to the wet soil and freezing winter temperatures cause cracks in the pavement that haven't been sealed before to keep getting worse with time. The excess moisture seeping through asphalt can lead to a much more serious problem than simply an unsightly crack - it could become hazardous for people on foot as well!

Your driveway is the first thing that people see when they come to your home. It's the first impression, and you want it to be a good one. With a new asphalt driveway, your home will be safer for children and pets to play on. A new asphalt driveway will increase your home's value.
We have been installing driveways for over 15 years and from our experience, asphalt is by far the best driveway material available today.
The benefits of an asphalt driveway are numerous: it looks great year-round; with proper installation, this type of paving will last at least 25+ years with proper maintenance; more cost-effective than concrete.
Sealcoating your driveway is an important step to lengthen the life of your driveway. Depending on traffic and weather, you should seal coat your driveway every 2-3 years.
Sealcoating provides a protective layer against oxidation, surface cracking, and asphalt deterioration. When the oxidized asphalt becomes brittle, it breaks away from its base material (the aggregate). This leads to costly repairs. It also helps protect against water intrusion into the pavement, which can lead to bigger problems during the freeze-thaw cycles.
