  • How do I know if I should sealcoat, overlay or replace my asphalt parking lot?

    Seeking advice from an experienced, qualified asphalt paving company can save you tens of thousands of dollars in the long run. Just as a sub-par initial installation of your parking lot can be frustrating and expensive, performing the wrong type of repair and maintenance can also lead to long-term problems and unnecessary expenses. Encore Pavement will fully explain our recommendations after a thorough on-site inspection of your parking lot, and we will always have your best interests in mind.

  • What are some important specifications to require for my asphalt parking lot?

    In addition to the critical importance of installing a solid base under your parking lot, the asphalt thickness and mix design are equally important for the longevity of your investment. Based on your application and expected vehicle traffic frequency, average vehicle weight, underlying sub-base material and long-term property plans, Encore Pavement will make a recommendation to match your needs and budget.

  • What preventative maintenance should I do to protect my asphalt parking lot?

    At a minimum, you should crack seal your asphalt parking lot every two years and apply a quality sealcoat every three to four years. Encore Pavement may customize a different maintenance plan for you in certain scenarios, but this is the typical rotation to double or triple the serviceable life expectancy of your asphalt parking lot.

  • How do I know if my parking stalls are ADA compliant?

    An Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) expert will need to visit your property to study the slopes, landing sizes, accessibility to the entrance, signage, striping and many other factors to determine if you are in compliance with current ADA regulations.

  • What are the asphalt deterioration warning signs?

    As soon as your new asphalt pavement turns from black to gray, the deterioration process has started. Oxidation, cracking, surface raveling, potholes and separation from the curb are all signs that you should be performing maintenance on your parking lot.

    Implementing a strategic and consistent preventative maintenance plan from the beginning can double or triple the serviceable life expectancy of your parking lot.
