An asphalt parking lot is, in many ways, an engineering marvel, especially here in the state of Minnesota.
In our consultation we will talk about the land on which you want the parking lot installed, determine the parking lot’s uses, and the dimensions and thickness of the asphalt pad based on the size and number of vehicles you need to accommodate. The thickness of the asphalt pad may vary in different locations based on the weight of the vehicles that will be using it. Areas where you have loading docks attracting trucks and heavy equipment will be much thicker than those where only cars will be parked. We also need to make sure the ground is firm enough and does not have soft spots or wet areas that could collapse under vehicle weight or create problems due to the freeze/thaw cycle of Minnesota winters. Our plan will be carefully drawn to allow for efficient snow removal, meet your budget, and provide you with the capacity and shape you require (we do not want you to pay for parking lot space you do not need and will not use).
Once the plans are approved the work begins, and at Erickson Asphalt Services our work is all about quality, craftsmanship, and durability. On average we use 25% more material than any other company. We use a 4 inch gravel base consisting of the highest quality gravel available, because what goes underneath is just as important as what goes on top.
Our asphalt is lab tested to insure that is not so hard that it becomes brittle and not so soft that it will dent or rut in the heat of summer. The base and asphalt pad are meticulously graded to insure proper drainage which will add years to the life of your parking lot. Our state of the art equipment permits us to do the job quickly and properly, creating only a minimal amount of inconvenience for you, your customers and your employees.
The job is not finished until the parking lot meets your specifications. We also make sure the area in clean and restored to the way it was the day before we got there. Then we leave you with the best and longest warranty in the industry to make sure you have nothing to worry about for years to come!. Contact Erickson Asphalt for your free estimate today!

Striping and marking is the finishing touch to a beautifully designed and installed asphalt parking lot. The bright colors of the striping and marking on the rich black asphalt are really a thing of beauty. In addition, those bright colors are critical to directing people safely around your parking area. Crosswalks, stop bars, loading zone markings, and properly marked pickup areas inform both drivers and pedestrians where they can safely drive and walk, when to give right of way to traffic and what areas to avoid.
A thoughtfully planned parking lot is design to accommodate the most cars possible. The striping and marking is the final piece in meeting this goal and creating the cost of effectiveness you want!
Erickson Asphalt Services always uses high quality products and the appropriate equipment to guarantee an exceptional finished product.
Perhaps most important of all is the fact that we stay current regarding state codes and laws for handicapped parking and stall sizes.
