Learn about five ways commercial asphalt paving services can help your business save money.

New asphalt on your parking lot can be a lot of money, but it is one of the best investments for your business. A significant expense like this is probably not the first thing to come to mind when you’re thinking about ways to save money. The truth is, however, that an investment in commercial asphalt services can actually save your business money, whether you’re having new asphalt installed or replacing the old asphalt you already have.

Improve Drainage

If your current lot has poor drainage, it will need repairs and repaving more frequently than if it had adequate drainage. When you’re replacing the surface, this is an excellent time to improve your lot and sidewalk drainage. If you’re considering adding asphalt to an unpaved area to make it more usable, you should also be considering drainage issues. Even a flat lot needs a small incline so that water doesn’t sit on the surface.

Possible Tax Credits

A newer, “greener” alternative to traditional asphalt is porous asphalt. This surface allows water to drain through the asphalt into the ground below. Porous asphalt is a good way to limit the amount of rainwater runoff your property produces. 

Proper Installation

Asphalt needs to be properly installed if it is to have the longest life possible. It needs to be installed in the right conditions. The asphalt surface needs to sit on a proper sub-base, with proper drainage and grading. Your contractor will also need to make sure there is adequate compaction before installation. If any of these factors are overlooked or rushed during installation, you will be paying a lot of money for repairs and replacement before you should.

Regular Maintenance

Another thing that will extend the life of your asphalt surface is to do routine maintenance. Clean the surface of debris, especially oil and gasoline spots. Repair cracks as soon as you notice them before they have time to grow larger. Likewise, repair potholes early too. Finally, invest in regular sealcoating to maintain the surface and protect it from damage.

Reputable Professional

When you need new asphalt, the best way to make sure you are saving money is to make sure you’re working with a reliable professional. Make sure that the contractor you choose is licensed and insured, and that they have a long history of good workmanship. Finally, don’t rush the process of finding the right contractor.
