5 Reasons Not to Ignore Your Asphalt Parking Lot

October 7, 2019

Asphalt paving cracks and damageThe common pothole or asphalt crack is something we are all familiar with. We see them every day, but often ignore them until it is too late. Not only do these cracks increase in size over time, but it will inevitably become more expensive to repair. It also creates a substantial risk of affecting the liability of a business owner or property manager. In this blog, we will go over the five reasons to pay attention to the signs of wear and tear of your commercial parking lot and how Advanced Asphalt Paving can help improve the longevity of your lot.

1. Prevent Additional Damage

Asphalt expands and contracts with fluctuating temperatures, mainly from the freeze-thaw patterns that occur every winter in places like Northeast Ohio, causing the cracks and potholes you see in your parking lot. It is inevitable that these existing potholes and cracks will become a bigger headache down the road. Cracks eventually weaken the structure, create additional potholes and eyesores and decrease the amount of functional parking spaces in the lot.

2. Save Long Term Money

Having small repairs done to your parking lot is less expensive than resurfacing or replacing your entire lot. When you invest in a routine maintenance program, you won’t have to worry about significant asphalt deterioration over time. If you routinely take care of your parking lot you can avoid larger bills down the road.

3. Avoid Liability

The customer foot traffic is a major liability concern for property managers and business owners. It is important to keep your parking lot well-maintained to avoid personal injury as well as damage to vehicles. It is your responsibility to keep all aspects of the property safe and functional, you will be held responsible.

4. Curb Appeal

Customers are often drawn to an attractive building, especially when comparing against competitors. If your business depends on new or repeat business, it should be a priority to make the entire experience, from the moment a customer drives into the lot, a good one. Your parking lot is the first thing a customer will see. Not only do some customers get frustrated with poor parking amenities, but potential customers might assume the parking lot condition is a representation of how the business is run as a whole. 

5. Increase Property Value

If you’re ever interested in selling your property in the future, it’s important to consider these probable concerns for a potential buyer. They don’t want the burden of repairing asphalt soon after purchasing. Your asphalt parking lot is an easy way to increase property value with ongoing attention and maintenance.
