Why You Should Consider Having a Concrete Parking Lot Installed for Your Kansas City Business

If you have a business in the Kansas City area, you may be wondering if your company could benefit from having a concrete parking lot installed.

Installing a concrete parking lot for your business can benefit both you and your clients and make the exterior of your business attractive and accessible as opposed to a gravel or dirt parking lot.

At Johnson Concrete, we can provide expert consultation to plan the perfect concrete parking lot for your business. If you’re on the fence about an installation, we have provided some reasons why you should consider having a concrete parking lot installed for your Kansas City Business.

Increased Accessibility

Concrete parking lots provide a smooth, level surface for clients to park their vehicles and access your business. Concrete parking lots are much easier and cleaner for people to traverse than gravel or dirt and are thermally cooler and more attractive than asphalt.

Especially for customers with disabilities, concrete parking lots provide increased accessibility to your business. Having a concrete parking lot installed can increase the diversity of your customer base and will likely be an appreciated addition.

Having a Concrete Parking Lot Installed Means Low Long-Term Maintenance

While concrete parking lots require some maintenance to maximize their nice finish and longevity, they are not as maintenance intensive as asphalt or gravel parking lots. Your concrete parking lot would only require washing a couple of times a year and joint sealing to maintain its finish and durability.

Cooler Surface Temperature in the Summer

Asphalt parking lots are notorious for becoming extremely hot in sweltering summer temperatures. The asphalt parking lot can become painfully hot on bare feet or the pads of animals’ paws.

We highly recommend concrete parking lots, particularly for businesses that may have a higher volume of pets or bare-footed people walking across parking lots such as a vet’s office, an animal shelter, or a business that is lake fronted or part of a water park.

Because asphalt retains so much heat, it can result in increased cooling costs for adjoined buildings. For Kansas City businesses, staying cool and keeping cooling costs low in our hot summers is crucial. A concrete parking lot will be significantly less hot as it does not retain heat like asphalt.

Versatile Designs

Concrete parking lots are a fantastic choice for increasing the curb appeal of your business. Concrete is highly versatile and can be poured in a variety of shapes, and poured in a variety of textures. It can also easily be stained or painted to add further aesthetic appeal or match your business’s colors.

At Johnson Concrete, we pride ourselves on offering a variety of concrete designs, textures, and colors to meet your design goals. Our onsite consultations are a great time to share your vision with us as we develop a plan to construct the perfect parking lot for your business.

Highly Durable and Long-Lasting

When installed correctly and properly maintained, a concrete parking lot can easily last 30 years, which is longer than its gravel or asphalt counterparts. At Johnson Concrete, we always ensure that we strongly reinforce our concrete parking lots to create a durable, long-lasting, and smoothly finished product.

While the upfront cost of a concrete parking lot is more expensive than asphalt or gravel, it pays for itself by lasting longer than its counterparts.
