Pavement Maintenance Tips For Property Managers

property managers

Pavement maintenance is a critical duty of every property manager.

Property managers have a lot of responsibilities, but keeping the parking lot and pavement surrounding their property in good shape is one of their most important duties. A parking lot is one of the first things a visitor sees when arriving at a new property, and that first impression can leave the guest feeling negatively about the business before they even reach the building. Pavement maintenance can be a tough job for property managers to do alone, but PTG Enterprises knows how to get the job done right every time.


While property managers want to make the best first impression with a well-maintained parking lot, they also want to keep it maintained for safety reasons. If a customer injures themselves in a parking lot, the business is open to financial liability. Whether a person hurts themselves as a result of tripping over an unrepaired crack or damages their car by driving over a pothole, a parking lot can be dangerous, and maintenance should be a vital part of your safety plan.

Sealcoating And Crack Filling

Sealcoating and crack filling are typically recommended for a parking lot every few years, as these services keep the pavement in good condition for a long time. In fact, parking lots that are sealcoated every three to five years and cracked filled every year can last 30 years without replacement, saving property owners a lot of money in the long run. A parking lot with little to no maintenance will only last about 15 years before needing to be replaced; therefore, keeping up with pavement maintenance will double its lifespan.

Asphalt Deterioration

While all asphalt deteriorates and nothing can be done to stop it completely, sealcoating and crack filling slow down deterioration significantly. Property managers should take a close look at the entire parking lot every few months to assess the situation, or call a professional for their expertise on the condition of the asphalt. Just be sure to not neglect the parking lot for too long, as trying to fix cracks and damages after they occur will cost much more time and money than preventative maintenance.
