Concrete parking lots remain popular options throughout North America. However, concrete has been used more often in warmer climates. Before hiring concrete parking lot contractors, it is important to note a few key facts about their design and functionality.
Installing a New Parking Lot
Prior to installing a new concrete parking lot, you will need a number of important blueprints to plan the project. Your concrete parking lot contractors will need drawings of the following:
- Subgrade material
- Preparation specs
- Concrete mix design
- Installation specs
- Drainage specs
- Marking layout specs
- Concrete curb and gutter
- Sidewalk and handicap ramps
Additionally, you will need to check the county and city specifications. You will need a water drainage plan. Manage and direct the water to prevent runoff affecting neighbors adversely. A reputable contractor is a key to avoiding any future issues with the parking lot.

Revamping an Old Parking Lot
You may need to remove and replace your parking lot if it shows considerable damage, blotchiness, patches, and is in constant need of repair. Choose a quality contractor to replace your concrete parking lot.
How Long Does the Parking Lot Last?
A properly installed concrete parking lot typically lasts two to three decades with proper maintenance. Remember that concrete is not as pliable as asphalt and is more susceptible to harsh icy climates. Maintain the parking lot every two to three years to maximize its use over time. Crack sealing services add to the lifespan of the parking lot. Save money in the long term by maintaining the parking lot with quality contractors. They can provide quality high-grade sealers and repairs.
