Advantages of a Concrete Parking Lot Paving over Asphalt Parking Lot Paving

Asphalt is indeed the most popular way to pave a parking lot, due to its lower initial cost but pricing for concrete parking lot paving has come much closer to that of asphalt in recent years due to improved equipment and the rise of asphalt prices. It is important to note that even though asphalt is still cheaper than concrete, its lifetime costs greatly outweigh that of concrete due to the maintenance requirements. Here are a few points to consider:

  • Asphalt needs to be resealed and resurfaced regularly to maintain its appearance and integrity. Maintenance costs for concrete are nearly zero—only some joint sealing and annual cleaning.

  • Concrete surfaces are much lighter in color which can help you save on lighting costs of your parking lot. You can reduce the amount of lights in your parking lot by about 30% and still have the same brightness, keeping your parking lot safe and bright while saving you some money! 

  • The lighter color of concrete will also reduce the heat-island effect and keep the parking lot cooler in temperature during those hot summer months; this helps lower cooling costs in surrounding buildings.

  • Concrete pavement is much more durable and able to handle heavy loads without creating divots, rut or potholes.

  • Concrete parking lot paving is also much more environmentally friendly! Runoff from concrete is of low toxicity and much cooler than from asphalt surfaces. Also, concrete can contain more recycled materials than asphalt.
