Concrete is an important and sometimes vital component in a well designed parking area. From aprons to sidewalks, wheelchair ramps and bumper blocks, Concrete has proven to be an attractive and durable material.
While 90% of parking lots in the US are paved with asphalt, concrete is also utilized in some areas of the lot such as walkways, curbs, gutters, dumpster pads, catch basins, and walls.
In most cases concrete is a durable, long lasting product without maintenance. However, proper maintenance can greatly extend the life and improve the beauty of concrete.
Some common concrete maintenance procedures include:
Repairing cracks in concrete to maintain a structurally sound surface and minimize water intrusion through cracks-which can cause problems with the sub grade.
Sealing joints in the concrete to minimize water intrusion through the joints, eliminate dirt collecting in the joints, and eliminate weeds sprouting up through the joints.
Sealing the concrete surface repels water. Some sealers offer other benefits such as high resistance to abrasion, resistance to UV sunlight, resistance to dirt and grime, oil, grease, rust, acid, chlorine, fertilizer stains, sprinkler water residue and mildew, as well as stains from most other organic matter. What your concrete is exposed to will affect your choice of a sealer.
