If you manage a commercial or retail property, you may already be aware of the importance of your image when attracting new tenants or customers. Their perception of your quality, value and reliability can play a key role in their decisions of whether to give you their business or continue to your competition. What is often overlooked, however, is that their impressions begin to take shape long before they step through your front door. The curb appeal of your property, such as the condition of your parking lot, can sometimes be a critical part of their decision-making process. If your asphalt pavement is faded, riddled with potholes and cracks or missing pavement markings, your visitors will subconsciously rate you as inferior to a competitor sporting asphalt pavement that is smooth, rich in color and appropriately marked.
At APM, we know that you have a busy schedule and a finite budget. We offer a variety of asphalt services to help commercial business and retail managers make their properties more attractive while reducing potential liabilities and protecting your investment in pavement.
Sealcoating is one of the most economical maintenance procedures you can have performed. Nothing restores faded color as well as professional sealcoating, and no single product can extend the life of your pavement as well. Depending on your traffic, you normally need to have a quality sealant reapplied every two to three years.
Potholes and cracks are more than just unsightly nuisances on your parking lot. They can permit water to seep beneath your pavement and destroy its foundation. Once the foundation has been compromised, you can expect to see extensive cracking and potholing that typically requires replacement of the pavement to correct. Furthermore, potholes and large cracks can pose tripping hazards, and potholes can also damage vehicles.
Visitors need clear markings to determine direction of travel and identify parking spaces. Pedestrian crosswalks must be marked, and handicapped parking spaces that comply with ADA guidelines must be present. Fresh pavement markings can also enhance the appearance of your pavement.
Curbing can enhance your landscaping and add a nice finishing touch to your asphalt pavement. However, curbing is also an important part of an effective drainage system, and it plays a vital role in establishing boundaries.
