As a commercial property owner or manager, you undeniably understand the importance of first impressions, especially in terms of curb appeal. When first impressions matter, a well-maintained, brightly lit commercial lot is vital. Here are some more reasons why it’s a good idea to repave your commercial parking lot.
Will Attract Customers
Your commercial parking lot is one of the first points of contact customers have with your business. How it looks and functions can impact your bottom line. A parking lot riddled with potholes or faded lines is less likely to attract customers than one with good curb appeal. Making a good first impression should never be an afterthought – especially when you own or manage a commercial parking lot.
Potholes Are Damaging
Potholes are caused when moisture collects in small holes and cracks in the road surface. As temperatures rise and fall, the moisture expands and contracts due to relentless freezing and thawing, causing the road to weaken. When combined with the weight of passing cars, the pavement breaks up, resulting in large cracks and/or potholes. This is a clear sign of asphalt pavement distress.
Potholes can cause serious vehicle damage. Common car repairs that can result from driving over a pothole, even a small one, include (but are not limited to): tires, wheels, tie roads, shocks/struts, ball joints, and alignment. Pedestrians are also at risk of tripping because of a pothole. If you notice potholes in your commercial parking lot, you should hire a professional to repave or redo it right away.
Increased Property Values
Making improvements, such as repaving a distressed lot, repainting faded parking lines or sealcoating for longevity can go a long way towards increasing the value of your commercial property. Using a quality paving company that stands behind their work is one of the best, most reliable ways to increase property values.
