Asphalt for New Construction

Parking Lots

Parking lot paving is an essential component of new construction. You'll need an asphalt parking lot, whether you're building a new office or supermarket. In either situation, you'll need to create a safe place for people to park. Our asphalt paving contractors will be able to design and install your parking lot.

During this process, we'll need to know how many people you need the parking lot to accommodate. That way, there'll be enough parking spaces for everyone. Parking lots often need to accommodate employees, customers, residents, and other visitors.

We'll also need to know if you plan on parking heavy vehicles, such as semi-trucks. Semi-trucks are so heavy that they'll actually dent the surface of your parking lot if they’re parked for too long. When this happens, you'll be able to see the impressions of each tire left in the asphalt. Yet, you can avoid this by letting our asphalt contractors know about things like this ahead of time. We'll make sure your asphalt parking lot is properly reinforced so it lasts for years to come.


Most homes and businesses need driveways to connect them to the street. Otherwise, people won't be able to park their cars near your property. Since summer is our busiest season, you'll want to plan ahead by hiring our contractors now. That way, you'll be able to get your asphalt driveway paved on schedule.

An asphalt driveway isn't something you want to leave until the last minute. This is because we have to wait until the right weather conditions to start paving. The weather can't be too cold and the ground can't be wet while we pave asphalt driveways. Otherwise, your new driveway will form cracks and potholes in no time.


You may need a private road installed if you're building in a rural area. Our asphalt contractors will make sure that your private road is strong enough for what you need. For example, you may need reinforced pavement for heavy non-pedestrian vehicles.


Depending on the project, you may want asphalt pathways connecting buildings. For example, pathways can help apartment buildings feel more like a community. Our asphalt contractors will be able to work with you to determine the best places to put paths. We always try to think of where paths would be the most convenient for pedestrians. That way, you won't have as many people cutting across lawns to get where they need to go.
