How Asphalt Paving is Good for Business

When it comes to commercial business properties, every detail matters, including your parking lot. The choice of paving material can significantly impact your business’ aesthetics, functionality, and even your bottom line. 

Asphalt paving, in particular, offers a range of advantages that make it a top choice for a variety of commercial businesses. In this article, we’re exploring the benefits of asphalt, from cost-effectiveness to safety and convenience. And if you’re worried about maintenance, we’ll cover that too with tips to keep your parking lot in optimal condition. 

The cost-effective way to boost business 

One of the most significant advantages of choosing asphalt for your commercial parking lot is its cost-effectiveness. Asphalt is generally more affordable than other paving materials like concrete or pavers.

Asphalt is also quick and easy to install, giving it a definite advantage over something like concrete. This keeps labour costs lower while also reducing installation time, meaning fewer disruptions to your business operations.

Asphalt is extremely durable and can withstand heavy traffic and extreme weather conditions, even in our harsh Canadian climate. It’s not prone to cracking and can last for many years with proper maintenance, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements. 

And when damage does occur, asphalt is relatively easy and inexpensive to repair. Small cracks and potholes can be quickly filled and sealed, preventing them from spreading and becoming more significant issues. 

Finally, asphalt provides a wonderfully smooth and welcoming surface, reducing wear and tear on vehicles and minimizing the need for maintenance on vehicle suspensions. Your customers and staff will surely appreciate this!

Bulldog Paving makes installation quick, convenient, and safe

At Bulldog Paving, we’re business owners too so we understand that commercial businesses can’t afford extended downtimes. That’s one of the things that makes asphalt paving so advantageous. Installation is swift and convenient, typically completed faster than concrete or other installations to minimize disruption to your business and customers. In fact, asphalt driveways and parking lots are ready for use within a short period after installation so you can resume your regular business operations promptly. 

We also recognize that the safety of your staff and visitors is paramount. Asphalt paving provides excellent skid resistance to reduce the likelihood of accidents due to slippery conditions, especially during rainy or snowy weather. It allows for clear and visible line striping, making it easy for drivers to navigate your parking lot without the risk of collisions and confusion. Even pedestrians will benefit from asphalt, with minimized tripping hazards on a smooth and even surface. 

Simple maintenance 

We get that you’re already busy tending to your business and don’t have time for significant parking lot maintenance, but the good news is that there’s very little you’ll need to do. Here are a few easy tips to keep your commercial lot in tip-top shape:

  • Inspect your lot regularly for cracks, potholes, pooling water, or lifting, then intervene with professional maintenance services early while the problem is still easily fixable.
  • Keep your lot clear of clutter and debris that could contribute to the degradation of your asphalt. If you experience oil spills, clean them up promptly. 
  • Apply sealer and regularly re-paint lines and markings to increase curb appeal and safety.
  • Use an asphalt-friendly snow melt during winter months to prevent icy buildup without degrading your parking lot.
