Improving Your Parking Lot For Future Business
The parking lot is one of the first things people see when they enter a business property. A well-maintained lot looks professional and leaves a good impression on prospective customers.
A poorly maintained one stands out for all the wrong reasons, so it is essential to get parking lot maintenance done before opening up for business once again. We at First Water Contracting can help by repairing all issues and making sure the area is presentable. Here’s a look at how you can improve the parking lots on your business property:
1. Make It Accessible
The Americans with Disabilities Act provides detailed guidelines for businesses to follow so that their property is accessible. You need to make sure your lot is suitable for wheelchair users and people with disabilities. There should be a few reserved parking spaces closing the main building's entrance so customers can easily find a spot and get to the store or office.
Ensure these reserved spaces are marked and add directions to the pavement so people can find them easily. As a company that has applied parking lot seal coating in Oklahoma several times, we know how to paint durable ADA signs on asphalt and concrete surfaces.
2. Remove All Potholes and Bumps
Driving over potholes and uneven bumps is an unpleasant experience and can damage a customer's car. Ensure all that all cracks, potholes, and damaged repaired to provide a smooth driving surface. We can help with asphalt resurfacing in Oklahoma City, ensuring that the parking lot offers an excellent experience to your visitors. We use the best techniques to get long-lasting results, so you won't need to repair the surface often.
3. Seal It
Asphalt is a very durable surface, and it can handle a lot of rough use, but it does require a little maintenance to last. As a company that has dealt with several asphalt parking lot repair projects over the years, we recommend seal coating the surface every 2 to 3 years. This doesn't just improve your lot's overall appearance but also protects it from wear and tear, eliminating the need for frequent repairs.
4. Install Good Lighting
Lots are often dark and poorly lit spaces, which can hamper the customer's experience. Make sure the entire area is well-lit and provides excellent visibility. Lights improve visibility and improve the overall security of the property. Dimly-lit parking lots can be dangerous and allow criminal elements to conceal themselves before attacking people. By installing a sound lighting system and adding a few security cameras, you can ensure that your customers are safe and comfortable.
As experienced commercial concrete contractors, we recommend adding reflective paint, gates for access control, and clear signage to your parking lot.
