A standard, regulation size basketball court is 50' wide by 94' long, slightly smaller than a typical tennis court. The same type of construction and color systems used on tennis courts are also used on basketball courts.
Asphalt Basketball Courts rock and asphalt installation
An asphalt basketball court is comprised of 4' to 6' of compacted road rock (usually limestone in Miami Florida ), 1' of asphalt and an acrylic color coating system. Once the stone base is laser-graded using our dual grade laser system and virgin asphalt been installed we allow the asphalt to cured for a minimum of 2 weeks, the color coating process begins.
Our technicians than flood the basketball court 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 basketball 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.

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.
Once the concrete has cured, a concrete primer coat is applied to ensure that the acrylic resurfacing product will adhere to the concrete surface. The court is then flooded to reveal any low areas in the concrete surface. A patch binder mix is then applied to fill in the low areas. Two coats of acrylic resurfacing product are next applied to repair any minor imperfections in the concrete 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. Click here for a list of standard and custom colors ( link to color chart ).
