There is little more frustrating than heading to the store for some groceries, just to end up driving aimlessly around the parking lot looking for a space. If it becomes a regular thing for a particular establishment, they could even end up losing business.
The condition of your concrete and asphalt translates into many different things. It can make your property more secure, increase the safety of your visitors, and make your business or home look more aesthetically pleasing.
Let’s examine some ways that the condition of your paved surfaces directly impacts your property. This will help you understand why it is so important to keep your surfaces in optimal condition.
1. Aesthetic Value
Pavement is one of the largest influences on the aesthetic value of a property. This stems from the way that pavement tends to encompass a large amount of area on a property.
When the pavement is cracked, chipping, fractured or shows other signs of damage, it detracts from the property’s value. This is one of the reasons that new constructions tend to dip in value when their paved surfaces are poorly built, and begin to crack.
2. Crime Deterrence
A paved area that has fallen into disrepair is one of the signals that criminals use to determine if the property owner is actively securing their property.
When the pavement begins to look damaged, or grass begins to grow through cracks, this will tend to promote criminal activity. Everything from drug deals to theft and violence may occur as a result.
Keeping your pavement in repair will act as a crime deterrence.
Decaying pavement tends to create ledges, cracks and potholes that can damage vehicles and injure people. This can lead to injury and damage lawsuits, legal action, loss of business and other undesirable consequences that could be avoided.
Preventative maintenance and repair is the only way to prevent these problems from forming.
The last, and arguably most important reason, to keep your paved surfaces in repair revolves around how usability is affected.
Surfaces that are in disrepair will tend to be dangerous, unstable and prone to further damage. This can lead to paved surfaces that are unusable by the people that should be able to use them.
When your pavement falls into disrepair, this means that visitors cannot access your property as they should be able to.
