Paving the Way to Curb Appeal

Paving the Way to Curb Appeal, asphalt paving austin txReal estate agents often mention a home’s curb appeal in their advertisements, interoffice discussions and conversations with potential buyers. A property’s curb appeal is simply the impression that people form when viewing the property from the street. A property that is aesthetically pleasing and properly maintained has greater curb appeal than a property that is in disrepair. Although many people only think of curb appeal in terms of single-family homes, commercial properties also need to have curb appeal. An experienced commercial paving contractor can add to the appeal of your property’s curb appeal.

How Does the Pavement’s Condition Affect a Commercial Property’s Curb Appeal?

Whether you manage an apartment complex, an office park, a shopping center or some other type of commercial property, you have certain goals that you want to achieve. You want to attract excellent tenants, keep them happy and encourage them to stay. You want to help them attract and retain customers and quality employees. You want the people in your community to have a good impression of your management skills. Furthermore, you want to ensure that the company’s capital assets are protected.

If your parking lot, walkways and other pavements are in disrepair, people will notice. Citizens passing by the property may assume that the interior will also be in poor condition, and prospective tenants may not even give you the chance to disprove the assumption. Customers may form a perception that the goods and services offered by your commercial tenants are somehow inferior.

People who venture onto your property may feel unsafe. For example, if there are potholes that could pose a tripping hazard or damage a vehicle, they may not want to park in your lot. If your parking lot has missing or worn pavement markings, stripes or signs, they may find it too difficult to navigate your lot.

What Are Some Common Paving Services Needed by Commercial Property Managers?

Commercial properties have pavements that vary in size, use and age. Therefore, not all properties will need identical paving services. However, the following list covers the services that are commonly needed for commercial properties.

Asphalt Sealcoating: A professionally applied sealant can rejuvenate faded asphalt pavement by restoring its rich, dark color. However, sealcoating also offers excellent protection against the ravages of automotive fluids, UV rays and vehicle traffic.
Asphalt Crack Repair: Cracks should be repaired promptly to prevent water from reaching and destabilizing the pavement’s base. Base erosion is a leading cause of potholes as well as alligator cracking. In addition, cracks and other pavement damage can cause pedestrians to trip and fall.
• Markings: Freshly painted stripes defining the parking spaces contribute to the property’s curb appeal, but they also help maintain order in your lot. Drivers will be less confused, the incidences of minor dents to vehicles should be reduced and pedestrians will be able to navigate the lot more safely. Well-marked crosswalks, handicapped spaces, traffic arrows, loading zones, fire lanes and other pavement markings also contribute to the safety and appearance of your parking lot.
