Asphalt Basketball Courts

Asphalt Basketball Courts Tampa

Standard Asphalt Basketball Court

Basketball Court Construction TampaAsphalt basketball courts are comprised of 4″ to 6″ of compacted road rock (usually limestone in Florida ), 1″ of asphalt and an acrylic color coating system. Once the stone base and asphalt has been installed, and the asphalt has cured for 2 weeks, the color coating process begins. The court will be flooded to reveal any low areas in the asphalt surface. A patch binder mix is then applied to fill in the low areas. Two coats of acrylic resurfacing product are next applied over the asphalt to repair any minor imperfections and seal the asphalt surface. Two coats of acrylic court paint are then applied, followed by the playing lines. Most new courts will require a four coat color system (two coats of resurfacing product, two coats of color product). You as the court owner can choose from a variety of different colors to match your tastes.

Standard Concrete Basketball Court

A concrete basketball court can be a great solution when (a) site access makes it difficult or impossible for asphalt equipment to reach the court site (b) when a small half court is desired. Concrete basketball courts consist of one inch of concrete with a medium broom finish poured over a properly graded sub-base. It is important that a vapor barrier, usually a 6 mil plastic liner, is installed over the sub-base before the concrete is poured. This barrier will prevent moisture from being drawn into the concrete and getting trapped between the concrete and the acrylic coating system.
