As a business, you need to put your best foot forward in order to make the best first impression possible. Plus, how your business looks reflects to customers and potential customers how you run your business and how you care for your business. Included in this is your parking lot. Let’s face it, a nice, newly paved parking lot with new stripes painted makes a much better impression than an uneven parking lot with lots of potholes and no visible stripes, which can make parking haphazard at best and chaotic at worst, depending on how busy your business is. Repaving your commercial parking lot is something that should be done before it gets to be a chaotic free-for-all.

Milling Machines

As with most jobs, you need to prepare the surface before you can redo anything. With parking lots, you’ll have to fix the asphalt that is already there,. thus,To do this, you’ll need a milling machine. Milling machines remove surface layers, such as the top asphalt layer of a road, so that a new, even layer can be laid. The nice part about modern-day milling machines is that the top layer is now usually recycled, eliminating needless waste in landfills and expenses for businesses.

Wagner Equipment Co offers our PC205B High Flow Cold Planer that is extremely adept at removing asphalt and concrete prior to the resurfacing process. These CAT Cold Planers are perfect for smaller commercial applications to remove imperfections and deteriorated pavement. This Cold Planer can be used as an attachment on CAT skid steer loaders, compact wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, and multi-terrain loaders. We have a variety of Cold Planers for you to pick from that will meet your pavement stripping needs. Browse our CAT equipment today!

Distributor Tank

Distributor tanks apply a base coat for protection of the new asphalt. They also are used to apply a hot liquid asphalt layer as well, which can improve the bonding of the new asphalt to its new surface. It acts as glue to hold the existing layer to the new asphalt layer that is about to be poured. This improves the pavements strength and durability over the long run. This surface helps to reduce sliding and cracking it the asphalt.


Once you have prepared your new surface, you’re ready to begin laying down new asphalt. In order to do that, you need to have a truck to haul the asphalt to your commercial parking lot. Odds are, your commercial parking lot is fairly big, so you’ll most likely need a truck and a trailer in order to do the job effectively and efficiently. Many people also like to have a gravel base laid underneath the asphalt for added strength.
