One of the first things your customers see is your parking lot. Just like a homeowner's landscape can add curb appeal so can a parking lot for a business. The last thing you want to do is create a bad impression because your parking lot is not up to par. If it contains cracks and potholes, customers will be hesitant about driving in it if they think it could mess up their car. If your parking lot needs some work, think about utilizing some of these services to get it in great shape.
Asphalt Seal Coating
If your parking lot is older than a year, chances are you need to apply some asphalt seal coating to it. This helps prolong the life of your asphalt by creating a protective barrier over it. This makes it harder for weather and other elements to create cracks in your asphalt.
If you want to improve the function of the parking lot, you need to look into having the right signage installed. This means signs that signify what spaces are for handicapped people and what spaces should be designated for employees. If the parking lot is confusing, you could add directional signs to help customers navigate the parking lot easier.
Concrete bumpers can be a great addition to your parking lot. This prevents drivers from pulling up too far and damaging property or other vehicles located in front of them. They are also good at preventing cars from blocking walkways by pulling up too far. In order to keep things orderly in the parking lot, you may want to look into adding these concrete bumpers to your lot.
Parking Lot Striping
If you want to make sure drivers are able to navigate the parking lot easily, you need to make sure the lines are visible. This means having the parking lot restriped every so often. If you neglect to keep this up, you could end up liable when cars run into each other. Parking lot restriping does not require much time and can be done during off hours when your business is closed.
Ugly cracks in your parking lot can quickly turn into larger potholes over time. In order to avoid this it is important that you have the cracks filled when you start to notice them. This often involves having them filled with components that will keep the concrete together. Cracks are common in asphalt and will appear after years of pressure from cars and weather.
