Benefits of Ready-Mix Concrete for Parking Lots
Our team here at Navasota Concrete formulates and creates our ready-mix concrete from mostly naturally raw materials. Therefore, purchasing your ready-mix concrete for your parking lot from us is environmentally friendly.
If your company decides to go with a sustainable ready-mix concrete product, you can even help contribute to a healthy rainwater cycle for the Earth. Furthermore, ready-mix concrete is a much cooler substance during the summer months than traditional asphalt. This is because concrete does not absorb as much heat. Utilizing ready-mix concrete can help your parking lot prevent the buildup that would turn the lot into “heat island”. This is especially true here in Texas when buildings reflect and absorb heat off one another.
Bettering is another one of the many benefits of ready-mix concrete for parking lots. Similar to other pieces of property, parking lots also need lighting to maintain the safety of its drivers and users.
Using ready-mix concrete for your parking lot instead of asphalt allows you to attain as much as three times the reflectivity. Therefore, you can provide your parking lot users with the requisite amount of light necessary for them to drive safely at night. In addition, you will eliminate the amount of light fixtures you need.
More Cost Efficient
Often times, the lower initial costs of asphalt will lead companies and property managers to select it over ready-mix concrete. Similar to other eco-friendly options for buildings, the initial cost for the less energy efficient option is less.
However, the return on investment (ROI) is always extremely high. It is also typically very fast regarding how quickly you earn your money back and how much more you make. If you consider the price and time necessary to keep up with an asphalt parking lot, you will find that ready-mix concrete will cost less over the long term.
Ready-mix concrete pavements can carry heavy loads without rutting or developing potholes.
With the rigidity and high strength of ready-mix concrete, it takes much less pavement to provide the same load-carrying capacity of asphalt.
