Ready-Mix Parking Lots are Preferred for Safety, Aesthetics, and Longevity

Property owners and visitors prefer ready-mix parking lots because of their many advantages.

Convenience and Safety

Ready-mix parking lots give visitors a smooth and comfortable driving experience. Concrete’s durability makes it less prone to potholes and ruts, and it requires less frequent re-striping or resurfacing than other paving materials. Concrete parking lots also offer a clean aesthetic and create a sense of lasting quality for tenants, customers, and employees.

Energy Efficiency

Offering more light reflectivity than alternative materials, concrete parking lots provide greater visibility with fewer light poles, improving safety for pedestrians and vehicles at night. Along with a prolonged service life, energy efficiency was a key benefit that project leaders sought for the replacement of a shared parking lot in Wausau, Wis. The use of ready-mix for the Stewart Ave Parking Lot reduced the number of light poles needed to adequately light the property, resulting in reduced construction and long-term energy costs for the owner.

Additionally, concrete’s light reflectivity also regulates a parking lot’s temperature and mitigates the urban heat island effect. This benefit can contribute to lower cooling costs for surrounding structures.

Long-Lasting Durability

Concrete parking lots resist age, wear, and weather and can last up to 30 years with minimal maintenance. While concrete parking lots can have a higher initial cost compared to other parking lot solutions, they last longer, lowering life cycle costs.
