In order to operate your business – whether you’re making products, shipping them out, or selling them – you need to provide your customers and vendors a way to get into your building safely and easily. That’s why smooth, crack-free asphalt is so vital to your business. Parking lots filled with cracks and potholes give off a bad impression to your customers, not to mention the potential of causing harm to their cars. But many business owners are worried about the downtime that comes along with a commercial paving job. How long does it take asphalt paving companies to get the job done? Here are some general guidelines from the North Carolina and South Carolina commercial paving experts at SMI Paving.
- How long does it take? – Of course, the size of the area to be paved will influence the time it takes to do the job. So does the weather. In general, you should allow one to two days for an average-sized parking lot to be completed.
- How thick will it be? – Depending on your specific needs, your asphalt will be about two or three inches thick. For those businesses that generate a lot of truck and heavy vehicle traffic, we suggest going with a thicker option.
- Should you apply seal coating? – Yes! If you want your asphalt to be strong and lasting, seal coating offers an extra measure of protection. Water, time, and general wear and tear are reduced by adding a top layer of seal coat.
