1. Lifetime - Overlays are meant to last 10-15 years. If you need a longer lifespan, we recommend removing and completely replacing your parking lot.
2. Size - Overlays are best for large parking lots. If you're considering this process for a smaller parking lot, the site prep costs may keep this from being a cost effective option.
3. Condition of Current Parking Lot - If the existing lot has signs of heavy wear and cracking, the strength of the overlay will be weakened. You can expect reflective cracking to occur on the new overlayed surface within a short period of time.
4. Parking Lot Depth - The overlay is placed on top of the existing parking lot; adding at least a couple inches in height to your lot. Your project will need to have room for this addition and still allow for proper drainage away from your structure.
