Your parking lot doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, so it’s easy to take it for granted. However, when it starts to chip, crack, and form potholes, it’s time for some preventative maintenance. Learn why you need to repair those potholes quickly, rather than wait for them to expand.
Improved Curb Appeal
Even minor potholes are unappealing and unprofessional. Whether your parking lot is for employees, customers or both, a smooth, flawless parking lot and driveway communicate professionalism and improve the curb appeal of your business. Don’t let a few cracks and crevices prevent your company from landing important clients or bringing in new customers.
Customer Safety and Safety
Over time, those minor potholes can start to grow and cause damage to vehicles. Few things can ruin customer satisfaction like a popped tire or damaged suspension when pulling into your parking lot. Minor potholes won’t cause these issues, but they can quickly grow.
Potholes can also cause customers to sprain their ankle or otherwise injure themselves while walking. This is particularly true in poor weather conditions, which makes potholes an even greater tripping hazard. Don’t wait until someone is injured before repairing your parking lot and promoting safety throughout your commercial property.
In the end, you’ll save money by repairing small potholes. If a small hole or crack gets out of hand, it creates deep cracks in the foundation of your parking lot. A foundation crack requires major excavation and resurfacing, which is far more expensive than filling a pothole.
