Parking and delivery areas that experience consistent heavy loads in the form of large trucks and industrial equipment can be ideal for asphalt paving because of its ability to give under weight. It remains crucial, however, that your asphalt pavement be of a design and thickness to bear this constant weight or it will crack and crumble prematurely.
Our professionals discuss your application and inspect your site to determine the best make-up and design of your asphalt pavement. Movement and location of truck traffic, loading and unloading zones and storage needs are taken into consideration, so that your paved area remains durable and aesthetically pleasing throughout its life.
Asphalt can be a great choice for the budget conscious, as zoned areas can be paved to accommodate car traffic versus truck traffic. Regular maintenance is critical to its longevity, especially frequent sealcoating to protect your asphalt from oil, diesel, and other petroleum-based fluids that can be a specific problem with truck and equipment traffic.
- Lasts 15 to 30 years, depending on usage and maintenance
- Can be used almost immediately after installation
- Frequent sealcoating to protect from petroleum-based fluids
- Tends to resist cracking under heavy weight
- May be resurfaced to avoid replacement cost
Is asphalt right for you?
At S&K Asphalt, we provide quality paving in asphalt and concrete. Proper construction is key to ascertaining that your industrial paving project performs to your expectation and gives you the maximum years of service based upon use. When you meet with our professionals, we’ll discuss the following:
- The planned use for your parking and delivery areas—heavy trucks, construction equipment, storage of heavy vehicles or containers. We then determine the appropriate depth of paving material to accommodate this use.
- An inspection of the area to be paved to determine composition of the ground and plan for the appropriate rock subbase. Your rock base is crucial to maintaining the expected lifespan of your pavement.
- Your budget and maintenance preferences.
