That variation in age can be determined by the stability of the sub-grade, the quality of the installation, the type and frequency of maintenance, and the drainage plan when initially installed. All asphalt deteriorates with time and can potentially become a safety hazard as it ages. In most cases, it can be brought back to life with some routine maintenance like minor patching, crack sealing, sealcoating, and restriping.
Experienced Service, Creative Solutions
A properly installed asphalt parking lot with regularly scheduled maintenance can last up to 20 or even 30 years.
However, if your existing asphalt parking lot is showing signs of severe aging and deterioration, or has a tremendous amount of patching and repairs and looks worn out and uninviting, overlaying the existing asphalt or completely removing and replacing it may be your best and only options. In most cases, this can also be done without engineering, but should only be performed by a reputable paving company who will do it right the first time, such as Haystack Construction.
The goal with any parking lot should be to maximize the life expectancy as much as possible before having to completely remove and replace it. This requires a solid plan with frequent maintenance of every 2 to 3 years. You can rest at ease with Haystack Construction handling your project.
Make it easy on yourself. Save time, money, and future headaches by hiring Haystack Construction to remove and replace or perform maintenance services on any and all of your asphalt projects.
