Parking lots need to be safe and attractive. They need to be designed for proper water runoff and they need to last for many years under heavy traffic. Baker Enterprises, Inc has built hundreds of parking lots for businesses across Iowa, and our paving experts know how to get the job done right.

Why Use Concrete for Parking Lots?

While asphalt is still a popular choice, there are many reasons to choose concrete parking lots instead:

  • Affordable installation—Asphalt used to be the more affordable choice, but its costs have increased to the point where it’s nearly comparable to concrete.
  • Low maintenance—Concrete doesn’t require frequent resealing or resurfacing like asphalt, and repairs are kept to a minimum when the concrete is installed properly.
  • Good load-carrying capacity—Concrete parking lots are designed for strength and weight-carrying ability so they can last many years even with heavy traffic.
  • Light color—The light color is good for two reasons: first, it is more visible at night (and thus safer), and second, it maintains a lower summer temperature.
  • No potholes—While asphalt is subject to ruts and potholes, concrete is rigid and very strong, and it can carry heavy loads without getting damaged.
  • Eco-friendly—The water runoff from concrete surfaces is low toxicity compared to most asphalt parking lots and roads.
  • Decorative options available—You can get colored or patterned decorative options to improve the appeal of your concrete parking lot.
