It is common practice for religious institutions to defer maintenance in favor of providing social services. Aiding this decision is the fact that many religious facilities do not have anyone on staff to handle property management. In addition, most have little support from outside experts and minimal or no budget to make critical repairs. As religious sanctuaries age and decline, however, it is more important now than ever to devise a plan for upkeep to minimize risk to congregations and communities. A good place to begin is by assessing property damage at the surface.
Rose Paving has almost 40 years of experience helping religious institutions nationwide manage the maintenance and repair of parking lots. Our parking lot management solutions help facilities managers identify defects and create a plan for routine maintenance that maximizes time and money.
Timing, Planning, & Budgeting
Religious institutions are extremely busy facilities. Not only do they nourish souls, but most provide community services throughout the week as well. With such continuous use, it is no wonder that religious facilities are in constant need of maintenance. Parking lots are no exception. When faced with limited funds and know-how, it is especially important to consult the experts in parking lot management. Rose Paving performs on-site evaluations of parking areas and can educate facilities personnel on how to spot warning signs of pavement failure. A Pavement Management Plan (or PMP) can be developed to outline defects and schedule repairs, based on priority and budget. This, in turn, creates a safer environment in which to better serve communities and inspire congregations.
