If you’re up to your elbows in spreadsheets and numbers, we have good news for you: Help is on the way. Rose Paving has assisted property managers with their pavement planning needs for more than 40 years, and we’re determined to make 2019 your best year yet. To show you we mean business, our in-house experts compiled a list of advice and factors to take into account as you go into budget season. Read on, then contact us to put your project in motion.
Think ahead with a pavement management plan
Minimize unexpected expenses and keep track of basic upkeep by bundling all your pavement needs into a maintenance plan. Planning ahead gets the day-to-day management tasks out of the way so that you can focus on larger capital expenditures. Pavement management plans are lifesavers at keeping dates and services straight, especially if you oversee multiple properties.
Balance your budget with preventative maintenance
Our project managers swear by preventative maintenance, which is a proactive approach to pavement problems that can significantly extend the lifespan of your parking lot. Simple, cost-effective services like cracksealing and sealcoating can keep your parking lot in excellent condition when performed regularly. Preventative maintenance is a cost-effective solution that defers time-intensive pavement removal and replacement, which is only going to become more expensive as asphalt prices rise.
Set goals for a better parking experience
In addition to setting up your parking lot to run like clockwork, this is the best time of year to set specific goals for your pavement. This could be the year to put your customer’s needs and safety first by analyzing and tweaking your parking lot’s flow, or getting rid of standing water on your lot with catch basin repair. Check out some of our paving resolutions to get inspired and learn more about how Rose Paving can help you fulfill your goals.
Work with a trusted partner
Nothing throws off a budget more than a contractor who misses a timeline or doesn’t deliver as promised. A national paving partner has the experience and economies of scale to get the job done right the first time and at a lower price point. Rose Paving account executives and project managers cultivate long-lasting relationships with their clients to help them find workarounds and achieve the desired paving outcomes.
With these four tips in mind and a paving provider on speed dial, your budgeting and pavement problems should be solved in no time. Contact us today to partner with a company that puts you and your pavement first.
