When shopping for space in an office park, there are many questions that go through a prospective tenant’s mind. Price, size and amenities are certainly things that must be considered. However, tenants in office parks also ask themselves a number of other questions.
- Does the exterior of the office park match the image that the business is attempting to convey? An attractive, well-maintained parking area and appealing landscaping are high on the list when it comes to reinforcing an image.
- Is the area safe for employees and clients? Safety includes whether a client can walk from his car to the front door without twisting his ankle in a pothole. It also includes whether a client or employee can figure out where to park; no one wants to be ticketed for illegally parking in a handicapped space or blocking a fire lane.
- Is the exterior properly maintained? Right or wrong, many prospective tenants will suspect that it might be difficult to obtain needed maintenance on their space if exterior maintenance has been neglected. If the parking lot is cracked or the asphalt has faded to gray, tenants may be concerned that other issues, such as HVAC maintenance or structural repairs, may be neglected as well.
At APM, we have been assisting managers of office parks with their asphalt needs for more than three decades. We offer a full range of maintenance and repair services to help you keep the pavement in your office parking looking its best while extending its life.
Despite its amazing durability, asphalt pavement can develop cracks as it ages. If they are repaired promptly, the integrity of the pavement remains intact. If they are ignored, however, water entering through the cracks can erode the foundation. This typically leads to potholes as well as major cracks. If these more extensive damages are not repaired quickly, you risk having to replace your pavement as it can soon become impossible to repair it.
Office parks need curb appeal, and sealcoating can help achieve it. Sealcoating can restore asphalt pavement to the rich, deep color that it had when it was new while smoothing out minor imperfections on the surface. It is also an effective way to protect asphalt pavement from damages caused by the fluids leaked by vehicles as well as damages resulting from the sun’s rays.
Freshly sealcoated asphalt provides a beautiful canvas for fresh pavement markings. Stripes for parking spaces, markings to comply with ADA guidelines, traffic arrows, pedestrian crosswalks and other pavement markings make your office park more appealing while also making the area safer for both drivers and pedestrians.
Your tenants and their customers do not want to wade through standing water to navigate the parking lot. Water pooling on the pavement can also find its way to the pavement’s foundation and cause structural damage. Effective control of runoff can help protect your pavement while adding to the comfort of your tenants.
