One of the various duties of a property manager is to ensure is that all pavement assets on a commercial property are in top-notch condition. Even the slightest bit of inconvenience faced by customers due to your negligence can have a direct impact on your business.
A non-functional parking lot, a cracked sidewalk, or a faded surface at the front of your commercial property can affect customers’ impressions and the number of walk-ins.
Keeping in mind the influence that asphalt surfaces can have on customers, it is safe to assume that businesses that want to thrive in the coming year need to maintain their asphalt surfaces. Regular asphalt maintenance ensures that your surface retains its aesthetic appeal, functionality, and positive contribution to the property’s curb appeal. Also, it reduces liability and increases the service life of the pavement.
What You Need To Do
Going into the new year, it would appear extremely unseemly if you do not give your surface the love that it deserves. It will spoil all efforts or initiatives you might have taken to improve the impression of your commercial property and business. Thus, to make sure that your asphalt pavement can lead you smoothly into 2021, here is what you need to do.
Give your asphalt pavement a new look
· Repair or resurfacing
Hire a professional paving firm to inspect and repair your existing asphalt pavement. Repair work like crack filling, crack sealing, pothole repair, and more can all help your pavement regain its strength and smoothness. However, if the damage is too extensive, then consider resurfacing (for top layer damage), asphalt patch (removing and reinstalling a badly damaged patch), or repaving (full removal of a badly deteriorated pavement with foundational damage and installation of a new surface).
Sealcoating not only protects an asphalt pavement against damage, but it also restores the rich blacktop finish your surface once had before it lost essential oils due to extensive use.
· Line Striping
An effective way of making your asphalt look brand new is by putting a fresh coat of paint on the faded markings present on your asphalt. Line striping will help reduce accidents on your property, boost its curb appeal, and more.
Maintain your pavement’s look and integrity
Budgeting is vital to preparing for the coming year. Raising sufficient funds for an asphalt project immediately is impossible, leading to downtime and customer inconvenience. To avoid this, you must plan ahead and prepare for any possible expenses related to your asset. This way, you will successfully meet all of your pavement’s needs in a timely manner.
What You Should Keep In Mind
Due to unfavorable weather conditions, it would be impossible to execute particular asphalt maintenance and repair projects, so either wait for Spring or plan according to the weather forecast.
