Two Big Reasons Property Managers Can Save Time and Money By Installing An Asphalt Parking Lot

As a building owner or property manager, you already have many responsibilities to think about. Having a functional and safe parking lot isn't something you need to be stressing about. Why not install an asphalt parking lot and check it off your list of worries? After all, it’s better for your customers and for you!

1. Better for Customers

Your customers might not think about your parking lot much, but if they did, they’d be glad you chose asphalt.  After all, it provides them with several benefits:

Asphalt is Smoother

Asphalt pavement provides a smoother ride and is easier on your customers’ vehicles, and yours for that matter!

Asphalt is Safer

Asphalt paving offers:

  • Better skid resistance
  • Reduced splash back in wet conditions
  • Better visual distinction for lot markings

Things like sealcoating can offer even more safety benefits. Not only does it prolong the life of your pavement and make it look nicer, its also been proven to help melt snow and ice faster. Which means your customers are less likely to slip and fall on your property.

2. Better for Businesses

Asphalt is good for business owners, too.  You’ll maximize your return on investment (ROI) because you’ll save time and money. 

Installing Asphalt Will Save You Time

Asphalt will save you time in the short term and the long run. Asphalt is installed relatively quickly compared to other options, which means any business lost due to construction will be kept to a minimum. Also, asphalt requires only minimal maintenance, which helps you keep your parking lot open to customers even when upkeep is needed.

Asphalt Will Save You Money

There are a number of ways asphalt can save you money, including but not limited to:

  • Asphalt is safer than many other options, which may result in fewer liability claims.
  • Asphalt looks more professional, helping you increase curb appeal and foot traffic.
  • Asphalt is sturdy and long-lasting. It even holds up well in freezing and thawing cycles thanks to its inherent elasticity, therefore it won’t have to be replaced as often.
  • Asphalt has minimal maintenance costs, often just needing regular sealcoating to prevent potholes and cracks from forming.
    • A good contractor can help you with sealcoating in a cost-effective way.

In addition to the above, asphalt is also eco-friendly (which everyone loves) and helps with stormwater runoff –a few more things you won’t have to worry about.

Property and business owners know they can best maximize their time and money, plus promote safety and a professional image, using asphalt parking lots. The right choice is obvious.
