Planning how to spend improvement money for your building is never a simple A to B process. There are many things to consider, and you couldn't possibly do them all. Here are some reasons why asphalt repair services should be high on your building's budget priority list.
It Will Make the Building Look Great
One of the first things a prospective tenant will see when they drive up to the building is the parking lot. If it's dusty, cracked, and full of holes, you will potentially be losing out on a new tenant from the get go. Asphalt is also something people will see in exterior pictures of the building. It pays to upkeep it correctly, literally; it can be the icing on the cake that shows potential tenants that the building is well cared for.
You'll Be Doing a Favor to Your Tenants
Any money that you can invest into the building is an investment into the happiness of your tenants. Tenants like to see that a building is being actively maintained. Asphalt repair is a fairly quick project that won't disturb tenants' lives too much. On the contrary, it's a quick project that will get tenants' attention, give them something new to be happy about, and show them that you care about their comfort.
You'll Have Fewer Complaints
Tenants don't like the front of their building to look like it's worn. Potholes in the asphalt affect tenants and their guests alike. A dirty, old parking lot is an embarrassment to tenants. If you have been receiving complaints about the exterior upkeep on your building, perhaps an asphalt repair visit (and a landscaping visit, and perhaps some painters) is in order.
You'll Have Less Liability
Uneven surfaces anywhere on your property are the source of liability. Just one slip and fall injury could cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket. In the case of a serious injury due to uneven payment, your insurance may not even cover the entire balance; then, you could be looking at a lawsuit directly aimed at your company for the balance. All of this liability could be prevented with the correct maintenance, including regular asphalt replacement as needed.
So, contact an asphalt repair services provider to discuss reasonable estimates for your asphalt paving project. You will be surprised at the benefits it can have on your income, both directly and indirectly; it goes beyond what's listed above. For more information, check out A Thru Z Construction.
