Essential Elements of Parking Lot Safety
Create a Safe Parking Lot
While you definitely want your parking lot to look nice for your customers, it is also critical that the area is a haven for everyone. An unsafe lot can lead to trips and falls, vehicle crashes, theft, and property damage. These, in turn, can lead to headaches for your business in terms of lawsuits, complaints, and loss of income. At Azzarelli Paving, we make sure your parking lot looks its best and that it provides a secure space for drivers, walkers, visitors, and employees. We have been paving in the central Florida area since 1983, and we have what it takes to help you get the most out of your parking lot.
The Importance of Regular Maintenance
Over time an asphalt surface will develop cracks and potholes. These will eventually make a parking lot look shabby and unmaintained. As these deformities expand, they become stumbling blocks for those walking in and out of your building. They can also cause drivers to veer out of lanes, increasing the chance for accidents. At Azzarelli Paving, we recommend a plan with the following features:
- Routine inspections to identify problems
- Timely repairs to cracks and potholes
- Asphalt seal coating to increase parking lot lifespan
- Striping for ADA compliance and clarity
The heart of a safe parking lot is a smooth asphalt surface. A regular maintenance plan is the best way to catch small problems before they become safety issues.
The Benefits of a Nice Parking Lot
A well-maintained lot invites clients into your property and puts a shine on your company’s brand image. It also ensures that customers will be able to easily reach your front door. Elderly customers and those with disabilities will especially appreciate a professionally maintained lot.
