Commercial Buildings and Parking Lot Maintenance: 4 Things You Need To Know
What routine maintenance and a pavement management plan can do for your parking lot
Managing a commercial office building comes with the great responsibility of making sure your tenants are happy both inside and outside of the building. That experience starts the moment they pull into the parking lot. From clearly marked lines, to cracks and potholes, keeping your parking lot and sidewalks carefully maintained is a balancing act. To help you navigate the waters, here are four things you need to know about parking lots and commercial office buildings.
- Disrupting Tenants: First and foremost, consider the needs of your customers and tenants. A parking lot is an attractive offering, but cracks, potholes, and emergency damage can put a wrench in the customer experience, not to mention impact your ability to command higher rents. Keep your tenants in mind by performing repairs during low-traffic times.
- Plan for Maintenance: To avoid negatively impacting your tenant experience, take a proactive approach by planning for routine maintenance. Not only does this extend the life of your pavement overall, it can help to avoid unnecessary damage and unforeseen costs. And, it keeps your parking lot in action for tenant use.
- Be able to address needs quickly: Sometimes, despite your best efforts, emergencies are unavoidable. The key to managing unexpected problems that fall outside of regular maintenance is having an on-call service you can trust. With more national crews than any other pavement service, Rose Paving is always ready to address your last minute needs, wherever you are located.
- Working within your operating budget: As a landlord, asset manager or owner, we understand how important your operating budget is for each property.
