Concrete parking lots have a proven long life with no rutting or wash boarding, no annual resealing, and no need for scheduled overlays. The low maintenance of concrete saves money over the life of the pavement. Plus, the rigid pavement evenly carries heavy loads.
Concrete parking lots are environmentally friendly, using no hazardous materials, less raw materials, and often using recycled materials. The light color does not absorb heat, reducing ambient air temperatures by as much as 10 degrees. The light color also creates a high light reflexivity creating safer evening environments while using few lights.
