We Offer a Range of Services to Meet Your Needs
Although we want to stay on top of asphalt maintenance to prevent costly failures to your parking lot, there are several different types of cracks that will require additional applications to repair. These various cracks include fatigue cracks, longitudinal cracks, transverse cracks, block cracks, reflective cracks, edge cracks, slippage cracks, and joints. The cracking in your parking lot may be associated with various causes and distress mechanisms.
Most of these cracks benefit from the crack sealant. However, some gaps indicate asphalt failure, so the area will need to be saw cut, removed, and replaced with new hot mix asphalt.
We heat the crack filler in a double jacketed, diesel-fired melter, ensuring the crack filler never comes in contact with a direct flame, like other melters. If the crack filler gets too hot, too fast, it loses polymers and becomes less pliable. The more polymers the crack filler has in it, the more elasticity it has to expand and contract with the temperature changes of the pavement.
Winter seems to be the most challenging time for the crack filler to perform. We use a quality product that will help withstand the winter weather. We cannot stop the pavement from expanding and contracting, but we can use top-quality products that will give your pavement the best bang for your buck!
If your parking lot is six months old or older, it is time for seal coating. Your parking lot's best day is its first day and looks excellent when correctly maintained by seal coating on a 2-3 year schedule.
When the finish roller took its last ground-pounding trip across your lot, the parking lot had a rich dark finish because the asphalt was full of oil and binders. If asphalt goes untreated, the sun will beat down and oxidize the binders and oils, turning the asphalt gray. As traffic drives on the asphalt, new lubricants and binders work to the top. Those binders get evaporated by the sun, and the asphalt starts losing aggregate, making it rough and porous. Unfortunately, this process happens until all the things that keep your asphalt alive and well are gone, causing the asphalt to fail, crack, and develop potholes. Those potholes wind up extending into your pocketbook!
We often receive calls from people that want us to Crack Fill, Sealcoat, and Stripe their parking lot, but they have waited 15 years to call us. Asphalt sealer is like wax on a car or shingles on a roof; you would never wait to polish your care or put shingles on your home, exposing your investment to the elements. Your asphalt investment shouldn't be any different! Like wood, asphalt is porous, flexible, and constantly exposed to the weight of traffic. The asphalt needs to be maintained. The Pavement Projects maintenance program will give you beautiful pavement that creates the long-lasting impression that you love!
At The Pavement Project, we take pride in versatility, efficiency, and craft! When we stripe your parking lot, we take the time to make the finishing touches right because this gives the best first impression of your facility. By using the most technologically advanced pavement marking equipment, we can make the lines on your parking lot laser straight. Our traffic grade pavement marking paint will withstand the abuse of traffic and keep your parking lot safe for those who use it. If we need to make adjustments to the striping of your lot, let our Project Manager know during the bidding process. We will work with you to develop a plan that makes everything flow safely and look fabulous while it happens.
Our professional and courteous crew can handle the most complex striping needs - from motorcycle training courses, airport runways, and parking garages - to simple small lot designs. We pay special attention to all ADA compliance requirements, fire laws, and crosswalks.
The Pavement Project has over 30 years in the pavement industry! We can help you with every aspect of creating and maintaining your pavement. Because the industry does not have standardized regulations, hiring a company like The Pavement Project is essential to ensure that you get top-quality products & services! When you call us, we will come to your site and access the condition of your parking lot, create a plan that fits your budget, and work with you to create an ongoing pavement maintenance plan. We will use the best available products and apply them to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
There are a lot of “fly-by-night” contractors, but we are here for the long haul. We will gladly assist you with whatever you need! We will develop a plan, write the specifications for your project, and help you regardless of awarding us the bid.
Signage & Pole Bollards
Not only do we install and replace parking lot signage, but we can also customize any sign with your company logo. Signage can either be installed in the green space or within a bollard. We install ADA-compliant handicap signs. We can install customized street signs for POA’s, Municipalities, and county roads.
Here is a partial list of signs we can install:

Custom Employee Reward
We also offer many types of signposts:
Speed Bumps slow down traffic and prevent accidents. Studies show that 20% of accidents occur in parking lots! That means around 50,000 accidents happen in parking lots every year, injuring approximately 60,000 people. If installing Speed Bumps can prevent one of these incidents, it is worth it!
Installing or replacing your current speed bumps with heavy-duty rubber speed bumps ensures they will hold up to the elements and traffic while bringing safety and visibility to foot traffic.
To not deter any potential customers from your business, we prefer Rubber Speed Bumps because they are much faster and cleaner when we install them. The Pavement Project can install rubber Speed Bumps for any width needed.
