Paved parking lots are essential to commercial establishments and multi-family residential buildings in Kansas City. They’re a deciding factor for customers and tenants looking for places to eat, shop, or rent. People want reassurance that their vehicles are secure and accessible. Parking lots in poor condition — cracked, uneven, and quick to flood — will not give them the peace of mind they are looking for.
Some establishments pave the ground with gravel, fill dirt, and asphalt as a more affordable alternative to concrete. But concrete offers longevity when regularly maintained. It is the ideal paving material for commercial parking lots.
Let’s Talk about Concrete
Parking lots should be more than an afterthought, especially in terms of cost and building materials. They need to have a high load bearing capacity due to the sheer number of vehicles driving on them and people passing through every day. Outdoor parking lots also endure more environmental abuse which leaves them more susceptible to damage.
To maximize expenses, choose concrete for parking lot paving.
- It is durable and longer-lasting than asphalt.
- It is resistant to wind, water, and extreme temperatures.
- Steel-reinforced concrete with a low water-cement ratio (one of the flatwork laying techniques we execute) has a high compressive strength, which means they will not buckle easily under heavy loads.
- It is versatile and can take on any shape. Spray-on concrete, for one, can fill in cracks on existing pavement and reinforce the old slabs.
- It is readily available.
- It is low maintenance.
Apart from being the economical choice, concrete paving parking lots also lend a clean and modern aesthetic — an extra perk that fits in with the vibe of downtown Kansas City.
Flatwork Solutions for Various Parking Needs
Parking lots require different formulations and reinforcements depending on their location (indoor vs. outdoor), type (single-level vs. multi-level), and the vehicles that utilize them.
K&E Flatwork LLC’s experienced team knows how to approach these specific needs and create a parking lot that caters to them. Concrete needs structural support and careful planning — even if it’s just a parking lot. It is, after all, the first thing customers encounter; it can leave a negative impression for them to see flaws in the infrastructure.
A poorly built or maintained concrete parking lot can be detrimental to business while a well-kept one can attract business. K&E Flatwork LLC helps clients secure the latter for themselves and their customers.
