Materials and Methods for Parking Lots
Prime Asphalt has the expertise to tackle any parking lot need by utilizing:
A Bit of Insight Concerning Your Parking Lot Project
Below, you will find a brief overview about various parking lot related products and services which apply to new parking lots as well as those in need of resurfacing or repairs.
Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete (HMAC)
HMAC is produced by mixing a heated asphalt binder to an aggregate at high, controlled temperatures. The paving and compacting is performed once the asphalt reaches a pre-determined temperature.
Asphalt Patching and Repair
Proper maintenance of any parking lot is critical. And, even with the best maintenance regime, the need for repairs will eventually surface. If your asphalt parking lot requires patching, we can begin the process when the air and ground temperatures are above freezing. We can, also, spot-patch as a temporary solution, if needed. Additionally, our crew will do saw-cutting as well as removal and disposal. Saw cut removal and replacement is the most effective repair when an asphalt parking lot shows signs of deterioration due to water infiltration which can cause serious damage to the sub-grade material.
If you want your parking lot to stand out. If you wish to bypass the more generic look of black top or concrete, we encourage you to consider 'Chip Seal'! This product has a slew of advantages over black-top or concrete; and is synonymous with 'Tar & Chip'. The benefits of Chip Seal over black-top and concrete include:
Chip Seal involves liquid asphalt (or hot bitumen) being distributed over existing pavement or a compacted and grated area. Rock is evenly distributed and then rolled, impacted and sealed. The end result is quite stunning and adds a distinct touch of class. You, also, have the option of choosing from a pallet of natural colors; and once finished, your parking lot's surface takes on a rustic, textured ambiance.
As part of regular parking lot maintenance, any cracks in asphalt should be quickly filled with either hot rubber or cold pour crack filler which hardens and acts as a super tough remedy. Filling cracks as a preventative measure means your parking lot will not weaken to the point where its structural support becomes problematically compromised.
Asphalt will deteriorate quickly if it is not sealed or properly sealed. Seal coat will combat deterioration when part of a regular maintenance regime. Typically, an asphalt parking lot should be sealed every 2 to 3 years to ensure maximized protection. Ideally, seal coat should be applied when air and pavement temperatures are 49 degrees Fahrenheit or higher during a period of 4 continuous hours.
Emulsified Sealer/Rejuvenator will soak into the pavement and supply the necessary oils that have been, otherwise, lost due to oxidation and normal wear and tear. Oil-based coatings will cure quickly and rebind the aggregate. In the end, your parking lot will be maximally protected from water, blistering heat, and UV rays. An oil-based coating will provide and a rich, black coloration. Oil-based Gilsonite can be added in any temperature as long as the surface is dry.
If you want to add extra sass to your parking lot, consider one of the 13 earth-tone specialty coatings Prime Asphalt offers. We use 'SealMaster Neutral Base ColorPave' which is specifically designed to be mixed with ColorPave HD Tint. Your parking lot will exude its own personality with a touch of attention-grabbing color!
Grading and Excavation
Prime Asphalt's customers work with only one contractor, making the entire process incredibly easy. If you need a base installed for a new parking area, completion with grading on new construction, or clean-up and leveling after asphalt paving, Prime Asphalt will get the job done!
Recycled or Green Materials
Prime Asphalt makes every attempt to minimally impact our fragile environment. Within that commitment, we offer recycled asphalt – or RAP – which is the single, most-used recycled product in the US. RAP is made from previously used pavement that has been crushed and still possesses some of the original bituminous asphalt from being initially produced as Hot-Mix. RAP is tight, tough and maintenance-free.
