This is often one of the lowest considerations when it comes to property management because most people will focus valuable dollars on the buildings that people use, but this approach could end up costing you a lot more in the future. Pavement is typically a heavily trafficked surface that does, in fact, require regular maintenance. Speaking broadly, the purpose of pavement maintenance is to keep any property in its best condition. This means seal coating, sweeping, and simple repairs. However, on a more granular level, there are some specific reasons to keep up with pavement maintenance.
Keeping up with pavement maintenance helps avoid the cost of repairing deterioration, which is much more expensive for property managers. By doing regular maintenance, you can be dollar savvy instead of focusing on saving the pennies. Like most other things in property management, prevention is always most cost-effective than reacting to a problem as it happens.
Minimize your chances of liability
Cracked and uneven pavement poses a big safety risk to everyone who uses it. Even seemingly small cracks in the surface can cause unnecessary trips and falls which is a huge liability when it leads to injuries. In order to protect your property from unwanted and costly legal issues, it is important to practice preventative maintenance on paved surfaces.
Aesthetics Go a Long Way
A first impression is important to any business or community, so it’s important to be mindful of that. When a customer enters a business or community for the first time, those impressions are made immediately and they are often very hard to change. It’s important to keep your property looking great because aesthetics have a significant impact on perception and perception is everything.
Protect the Value of Your Property
Preventative pavement maintenance is an important part of increasing the value of your property. While you may believe that the value of your property will increase over time on its own, that is dependant upon how much work you are willing to put into general upkeep. Aesthetics are important to a business and its value on the resale market. Business owners who are great at what they do understand that any major property issues have the potential to affect the perceived value of any piece of property and reflect poorly on the business.
