Why proactive service is the cornerstone of Rose Paving

Summer is the season to kick your pavement repair efforts into overdrive. Our project managers and crew swear by preventative maintenance as a cost-efficient way to maximize pavement life while minimizing risk. Read on to learn about preventative services that can benefit your lot and how to streamline the repairs with a pavement management plan.

What preventative maintenance looks like

As its name suggests, preventative maintenance prevents further deterioration of a parking lot through corrective measures such as patching and sealcoating. Think of it this way: Preventative maintenance prioritizes sealing cracks soon after they emerge instead of waiting until cracks evolve into potholes. Other preventative services to keep your lot in shape include infrared asphalt repair, preventative concrete maintenance and pavement marking.

Why preventative maintenance is important

Not only does preventative maintenance extend the life of your parking lot, but it also stretches your maintenance dollar by reducing the risk of costly paving emergencies or time-intensive structural repairs. Being proactive also allows property managers to more accurately allocate their maintenance budget and schedule services far in advance, instead of having their calendars and bottom lines be left to chance. Outside of property management, the customers or staff using the parking lot will appreciate how the pavement is consistently in near-new condition.

How portfolio management can help

Preventative maintenance is a long game and custom pavement management plans allow property managers to play it effectively. With a PMP, your preventative services are set on autopilot so you’ll never need to worry about when your next sealcoating appointment is or when you need to start thinking about re-striping your lot. Portfolio management is especially helpful if you own multiple properties, but we’re confident that every facility manager will benefit from clear annual plans and guaranteed cost-savings.

All you need to reap the benefits of preventative maintenance is a reliable national paving provider that cuts through the jargon and red tape to put your parking lot first. Contact us today to see how we can work together.
