The parking lot is the first thing your customers see when they enter your business location. If the pavement is cracked and unsightly, this could give your customers the wrong impression of your business.
Some customers will even stay away and never enter your establishment. To avoid losing customers, you should routinely repave your parking lot, so it keeps your business going strong.
Getting your parking lot paved or sealed regularly by a professional paving company like us at Associated Paving Contractors, Inc. will be beneficial for your business in the long run. We have been paving commercial parking lots in and around Philadelphia for over 40 years, and during that time we have become experts in the paving industry. Below are some reasons why you should repave your driveway:
- Potholes can damage vehicles
You do not want your clients weaving and dodging potholes in your parking lot. If they were to hit one of them, it could damage their tires and car frames. Potholes are like cockroaches; once you see one, there are others close behind.
Customers that do not drive vehicles and rather walk or ride a bicycle to your business can hit a pothole or two as well. If your customers were to hit a pothole and sustain personal injuries or damage to their vehicles, this could lead to unnecessary costs coming out of your pocket. Personal injuries and damage are not the best way to build a loyal customer base.
- The problem could be coming from underneath the asphalt
There is an area called the subgrade, which lies underneath the asphalt, which can become damaged if moisture gets in there. The moisture causes erosion of the dirt and gravel bed and can lead to large cracks and holes in the pavement. You might have to tear-up your parking lot and resurface it, but it is worth the investment to have a long-lasting and sturdy parking lot.
- Seal coating doesn’t last forever
Sealant is only made to last a few years. After moisture seeps in the asphalt, it eventually cracks and holes form. Stubborn plants and weeds could grow through these cracks and holes, which will disrupt the smoothness of your pavement. If you regularly reseal your parking lot, then you can prevent these problems from occurring.
- Improves your company’s image
A smoothly sealed parking lot brings customers into your business and keeps your property value high. Getting your parking lot regularly maintained by a professional paving company like Associated Paving Contractors, Inc. can relieve your worries of losing customers, and your business will continue to thrive.
