Parking lots are typically constructed of asphalt, concrete, or brick pavers. Often the choice is determined by the characteristics of the project such as size, surroundings, and functionality. For similar reason to roadway construction, asphalt is recommended for larger parking lots because of the smooth ride, flexibility, value, and ease of maintenance. In Southwest Florida, asphalt is typically installed over a limestone or shell base. When the subgrade is made up of sandy soil, such as is found in this area, the soil will need to be stabilized before installing the base. Your civil engineer will calculate and specify the thickness of stabilized subgrade, base, and asphalt based on existing conditions as well as intended traffic usage.
Concrete curbs and sidewalks are a common design feature in parking lots. Concrete curbs function as a landscape barrier, while also promoting rainwater drainage. Sidewalks are needed to handle foot traffic and are most often constructed of either concrete or brick pavers. Bonness specializes in curbs and walkways of all types for all types of businesses. Members of our concrete division have made an art of their work, especially in terms of handcrafted curbs. Whether your business seeks concrete curbs and sidewalks or the upscale look afforded by paver brick walkways, Bonness' expertise is backed up with decades of continued success in producing beautifully finished products throughout Southwest Florida.
Carstops, stripes, directional arrows, and signs are installed by our striping crew as soon as possible after paving while the area is still blocked off. This eliminates extended parking delays for your customers or tenants.
Correct parking lot drainage is achieved through a system of surface run-off, drainage structures, pipes, appurtenances, and retention ponds. The entire system must be designed and maintained so as to drain quickly even in a heavy rainfall. It is important to retain the services of a professional paving contractor who possesses the right equipment and expertise to properly construct your parking lot to achieve the adequate drainage.
