What is asphalt paving?
Asphalt is used for road surfaces and parking lots. It must be laid down in layers and compacted. Today, this resilient material (a mineral aggregate) covers 94% of the paved roads in the U.S.
Why should I consider asphalt paving?
Asphalt is designed to ensure your driveway, roadway, or parking lot lasts. It can handle busy traffic with relatively simple maintenance, and is smooth, quiet, and versatile. According to statistics, 85% of parking lots in the U.S. are asphalt.
When does my asphalt need to be repaired?
Properly constructed and maintained asphalt can last 20 to 30 years. Heavy traffic, oil and gas spills, sub base failure, water damage, droughts, heavy rains, expansion and contraction all conspire to erode and break up your parking surfaces. Seal coating can double your asphalt’s life span. Repairing your asphalt and concrete is not only important for safety and fire code purposes, it also enhances your property value and the impression you make on customers.
What about the cracks in my asphalt?
Cracks can and should be repaired immediately. Cracks in pavement require immediate attention and specialized sealant materials. No matter what the temperature, moisture in the cracks will cause significant damage to your pavement. These cracks become broken up pavement and also erode sub base over time.
Seal Coating Questions
What kind of sealing chemicals do you use?
Different chemicals have different properties and effects. Water-based sealants are safe but often wear off more quickly. Acrylic, urethane, and other options may boost the risk of fire because they contain flammable ingredients. The shiniest water-resistant seal coatings may make your asphalt pavement look more handsome but they can create hazardous, slippery conditions.
How is the sealer applied?
The hands-on brush approach is the one you’re looking for because it ensures even distribution. Alternatives can cause sealing puddles, which results in your asphalt being overly protected in some places and not at all in others.
Should asphalt sealant be thinned?
Only if the manufacturer recommends it and only by the proper amount. Some contractors water down their seal coating to save money on their end. But that results in lower quality and a shorter product life for you.
Lot Striping Questions
How much does it cost to get my parking lot re-striped?
The cost for re-striping will depend upon the size of your parking lot and the number of spaces that must be repainted. We’ve done small jobs for as low as $500 and huge projects for more than $40,000. Large parking lot re-striping is priced at a lower aggregate rate per spot. We also have a list of other parking lot maintenance services that we provide that includes parking lot sweeping, power washing, and seal coating.
Do I need to get my parking lot resealed before repainting the spaces?
Integrity recommends doing seal coating and repainting at the same time. The sealing helps to provide a blank surface for repainting. But we are glad to provide this striping as a stand-alone service if you do not want to consider seal coating at this time.
What kind of paint do you use to line parking lots?
The paint that we use is a waterborne acrylic alkyd striping paint that meets the highest VOC standards.

I had an ugly parking lot. A small job that some companies overprice to make it worth their while or they donâ€™t have to mess with it. I called Integrity Paving. I got an immediate return call and Bill was here, in person, to estimate the job. The estimate was very reasonable, the service professional and friendly. The crew did an amazing job quickly and efficiently. No cut corners just because it was a small job. I would recommend Integrity Paving to anyone and plan on using them the next time. Their name says it all.
