Owning a business comes with many different challenges and costs. Some expected and others which are not, construction costs are one of those things that can spring new challenges. These new obstacles can be costly and can get out of hand. That includes either constructing a parking lot or extending one for a growing business. Packing can be one of those obstacles that can get over looked or deemed less important. But there are serious repressions if you avoid these issues. If you do not have the means to support an influx of customer vehicles. Then you will simply miss potential customers. I’m here today to help you find an alternative to help you with your commercial paving and ease the cost of it.
Now when you hear about commercial paving, you may be inclined to think about traditional means. Which are Concrete and asphalt, these are the most prominent methods employed in today’s society. Though they seem to be the only solution, they are not. Companies like Truegrid, have made it their aim, to provide a better and cheaper alternative to the paving world. They accomplish this through their methods of reinforced plastic paving. Unlike traditional means, permeable pavements require little in installation. Concrete and asphalt, need excess amount of labor and equipment, making it a costly endeavor. When opting in to a permeable pavement, these are the benefits you will find.
Looking at cost first, being that this is the driving force of this article. The cost when compared to Concrete is from ten to fifty percent, while you will find the method comparable when it comes to asphalt. What really makes this system shine in its cost saving ability, is from its lifespan and lack of maintenance. It also utilizes cheaper materials that comprise the road.
Now that we touched on that, I will explain how it is cheaper and what it can offer. Unlike previous methods, that work by pouring a liquid material that solidifies and hardens. Permeable pavement works comply different. Constructing a plastic sheet out of recycled plastic, the base resembles a grid, comprised of small housing cups. The cups are used to house multiple types of filler materials, things such as gravel, sand, and any type of loose material you can think of. Which build structural integrity, by strengthening and supporting the others. If concerned about the weight it can handle. The base sheet has a strength of 6800psi, before introducing the filler material. Another feature this method has over others is its lifespan. Concrete and asphalt, have a lifespan ranging around 15 years, while Truegrids method can be sustained up into the 60s. The reason for this is due to its permeable capabilities, allowing water to pass uninhibited though the pavement itself. Reducing things like pools of water that lead to potholes.
Finding alternate answers to new or pre-existing problems, is what Truegrid is about. Now this system can’t handle every obstacle you may have with construction cost. It can help with all your parking concerns. So, as long as you keep your options open and look around, you can always find multiple answers to any problem.
