Line marking my asphalt

In carparks and vehicle areas, using line marking helps to define areas and direct traffic. All asphalt surfaces can be marked to provide just about any directional information required, such as arrows, turning points, carparks, hazards, speed limits etcetera. This can negate the need for further pole signage. Depending on the preparation of the surface and making sure the paint used is appropriate for the purpose, asphalt line marking will usually be more durable. At Budget Asphalt we can arrange line marking on the surfaces we prepare such that your commercial areas direct traffic flow according to your needs.

Can I put an asphalt surface over my old concrete?

Essentially the answer is yes. However, it is better to remove the concrete as this will improve the life of the asphalt surface. Concrete moves according to where it has expansion joints. While asphalt will initially cover the joints, eventually they will become apparent as cracks in the asphalt.

Repairing the "repaired" asphalt

An asphalt repair at the main entry caused a major trip hazard, said this customer who had dealt with a different asphalt company. To rectify the problem, we visited the site and gave a competitive quote to repair the other contractor’s work. We then completed work with the minimum of fuss and professional results, including reinstating the safety line markings. The thankful client then called to say “great job”!.

Does asphalt come in any other colour than black?

All asphalt is black. Depending on what aggregate is used in the mix, over time it will naturally fade to grey. However, if you want an area to look beautiful for longer, then asphalt is the better choice as, unlike concrete, dirt and grime build up is less apparent. It will never need scrubbing or pressure washing. Like any surface, an occasional overlay every few years is all that should be needed.
