Parking Lot Paving Services


Experience the difference of driveway paving and parking lot paving that is smooth and precise. 

We also have decades of experience expanding parking lots and integrating existing pavement to provide a uniform look and feel. We also know from hundreds of successful projects and years of field application that the most critical part of your new asphalt parking lot is the sub-base. We ensure that a proper foundation is in place so that your commercial asphalt can withstand the weight of vehicle traffic.

Drainage is another important factor in preventing water damage and long-term water buildup. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to designing and constructing a parking lot that you’ll enjoy for several years.


In medicine, they say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We believe this principle also applies to commercial parking lots. We identify issues early and recommend the proper solution to prevent costly repairs later. Common types of asphalt damage that we identify and repair include:

  • Alligator cracks – Named for how similar it looks to alligator skin, these cracks and bumps occur when the earth shifts underneath the pavement.
  • Potholes – These inconvenient and anger-inducing holes emerge when thinner layers of asphalt expand and contract due to weather conditions and temperature fluctuations.
  • Rutting – Rutting damage looks like indentations on the road, similar to a well-worn trail. In addition to general wear and tear, other causes of rutting include faulty material.
  • Deterioration – Nature can take its toll on asphalt paving, making it gray and crack over time. When the foundation is solid, this can often be remedied with a seal coating or overlay.


When done every two to three years, a seal coating can extend the life of your asphalt and keep it looking new for several years. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, it also provides a protective barrier against the elements.

Parking lot line striping is about more than just straight lines. Proper placement can improve the customer experience. We’ve all been in parking lots with irregularly sized parking spaces or lines that were sloppily painted. It’s frustrating and makes us not want to return to that business. 

We can help you determine which types of lines will suit your space best, whether they’re straight, angled, or designed for parallel parking.


Asphalt patching and crack filling are essential to maintain a professional appearance, and they should be an integral part of your asphalt maintenance. You can count on Affordable Paving to keep your parking lots, driveways, and private roads in tip-top shape.
