Parking lot paving is an important element of your property upkeep, and making repairs or doing maintenance over time protects your investment. After all, parking lots are the primary entry to your business and contribute to the overall customer experience, including safety and traffic flow.

At Ford Asphalt Company, we know that there are many advantages to using asphalt versus concrete for your parking lot. Asphalt is a durable and cost-effective choice that is easy to repair quickly — and we can help.

Ford Asphalt Company is one of the top parking lot construction companies St. Louis, MO has to offer.

Parking Lot Paving

When you’re looking to install a new parking lot for your commercial property or expand your existing parking lot to accommodate more traffic at your organization, Ford Asphalt Company has you covered. We offer new parking lot construction services to create a brand new asphalt surface from the ground up.

A strong foundation is important for any new parking lot. Improper installations can cause drainage problems and can even impact how long the asphalt material will last. Our asphalt paving contractors in St. Louis, MO have the experience you need to create a solid foundation for your new parking lot.

If your existing parking lot has foundational issues due to a bad installation in the past, Ford Asphalt Company can help. We offer parking lot excavation and replacement services to get rid of old foundation problems and to restore your parking lot to its rightful glory. With foundational problems corrected, you can feel confident knowing your parking lot has improved curb appeal and proper drainage.

Asphalt parking lots typically last between 25 and 30 years with regular maintenance and repairs. Weather conditions, direct sunlight, motor vehicle traffic, and foot traffic can all impact your parking lot over time. When cracks and potholes start to form, Ford Asphalt Company is there with our surface patching services to keep your parking lot in great shape. Our asphalt paving contractors also provide asphalt overlay for when your parking lot needs a little more than a routine repair.

Parking Lot Repairs

We specialize in repairing and maintaining existing parking lots in and around St. Louis. If your asphalt parking lot needs some work, we offer the following services:

  • Standard asphalt overlay – Adding a 2-inch layer of asphalt on top of your existing surface
  • Perma Flex™ overlay – Adding a unique asphalt mix between old and new layers to prevent cracks from reappearing
  • Excavation and replacement – Removing the existing asphalt and totally replacing it
  • Simple patches – Repairing trouble areas without completely re-paving your parking lot

Or, if you’re just looking for a cosmetic update, consider our asphalt sealcoating service. It will give your parking lot some extra protection while returning that rich, dark color of fresh asphalt.

Featured Project: Parking Lot in St. Louis, Missouri

Parking lot repair is commonly required at retail locations with customer traffic. When Neiman Marcus needed to repair and refresh their parking lot in St. Louis, we roto-milled the existing pavement and installed a new 2″ asphalt overlay.

The Repair Process

Because your parking lot is important to the everyday workings of your business, we understand that you want the repair process to go smoothly and without delay. To make sure your project stays on track, our team will work with you to coordinate the details from start to finish.

Our standard overlay process is as follows:

  1. One of our team members will visit the location with the property manager owner to walk through the site and discuss priorities based on your budget. For existing clients, we’ll meet with you once a year to do a walk-through.
  2. After evaluating the property, we’ll put together a scope of work and present our proposal.
  3. When you’re ready to proceed, the schedule will be coordinated with you.
  4. The day of repairs, your parking lot will be prepared through cleaning and debris removal, if needed.
  5. We’ll apply a primer coat so that old and new asphalt can adhere and then lay the new asphalt surface on top.
  6. By the evening of the same day, a subcontractor or other company is able to paint the lot as desired.
