When it comes to creating a parking lot, there are several different factors to take into account. The size, capacity, weight limit, and of course, the material. Not only is concrete more cost effective than asphalt as a material for creating parking lots, but it is also considered to have lower lifetime maintenance. Concrete is also “green” due to the fact that it can be created from recycled materials.
Heavy loads are also not problematic with concrete parking lots. In fact, a 5-inch concrete pavement/parking lot carries the same load capacity as an 8-inch thick asphalt pavement/parking lot. And with the increase in the price of asphalt, concrete parking lots are not only a good choice but a smart choice.
