New Year – New Asphalt Parking Lot in South Florida
Why not start the New Year by greeting your customers, clients or visitors with a warm welcome? If your asphalt parking lot seems like a lost cause, it’s time to consider working either extensive repairs or replacement into the yearly budget. This is the first physical area of your business that visitors encounter, so making a great first impression is crucial.
Cracks and potholes are not very welcoming and can even damage vehicles or cause pedestrian accidents. Neither is an ideal solution for your business, which is why a preventative strategy is the best way forward. It may cost you in the short term, but the long term savings will soon become apparent.
Property Liability Concerns
Large cracks and potholes create a hazard. The wheels, suspension, exhaust and body of a vehicle can suffer damage when your visitors drive over potholes. While property damage should give you cause for concern, the safety of your visitors should be paramount.
The elderly and young children are at particular risk if your asphalt parking lot is riddled with tripping hazards. You are responsible for creating and maintaining a safe environment, which includes keeping a well maintained parking lot. It is better to budget for repairs; but if the damage is too extensive, you may need to completely replace an asphalt parking lot.
Parking Lot Appearance
Parking lot appearance is not the least of your concerns. Customers and visitors make observations. Even if what they pick up is stored in the subconscious, most people will act on that information when choosing a business. Your premises may be pristine inside, with processes that work like clockwork. But none of that will matter if the parking lot looks like it has been used to host a demolition derby.
