Tips on Keeping Your Commercial Pavement Looking Brand New
As a business owner, you know that the appearance of your commercial property is important. It can influence company culture, employee productivity, and customer perception.
But many people focus solely on functionality regarding commercial pavement management. Sure, paved driveways, walkways, and parking lots should work as intended, but they can also boost curb appeal.
With the right asphalt or paving services from an experienced contractor and some preventive care tips, you can keep your commercial space looking brand new for years. Read on to discover our top tips from industry pros.
Neglecting repairs to fix the potholes can cause important parts of the pavement, such as the surface layers, to suffer more damage over time. Not only does this lead to an unsightly workspace, but it could also put safety at risk if things get too worn down.
While most people find potholes on public or private roads, inspecting everything from parking garages to exterior streets is important. Check for any damage that could lead to auto damage, collisions, or personal injury.
Seal Paved Structures
Seal coating any paved structure every three to five years can help keep the pavement strong and reduce natural wear and tear. It is natural for rainwater and UV exposure to break down asphalt’s flexible adhesive over time. However, seal coating will provide an extra protective layer that makes the seal last longer.
Additionally, seal coating also gives your pavement a refreshed look. While this is not as important as safety, that new shine does increase the appearance of your commercial property. This is important if you frequently host clients or customers in your commercial space.
Keeping your commercial pavement clean on your commercial property is important for one big reason: it will save you money in the long run.
Grime and dirt might not seem like that big of a deal. Asphalt is tough, after all. However, those chemicals can cause damage over time. This erodes the quality of your pavement and leads to costly repairs down the road. The solution? Clean it regularly (or have someone else do it for you).
Inspect Parking Lots
Finally, invest in pavement inspections. While inspecting all areas is helpful, it’s especially important for parking lots.
While it may be easy enough to glance at the pavement and see if there are any visible issues, you are likely not an expert in pavement inspection and will not be able to spot more nuanced problems without bringing in an experienced inspector.
Pavement inspections can help identify things like cracks, weak spots, or signs of water damage, ensuring that any potential issues are addressed before they become costlier problems down the line.
