Getting Your Parking Lot Repaired? You Need a Phasing Plan

When it comes to parking lot repair in Austin, Texas, we’ve seen a thing or two. For businesses, retailers and residential communities alike, time is money––and nowhere is that more true than when it comes to having important maintenance work done on your parking lot and roadways.

That’s why it’s so important to choose an asphalt contractor who knows how to create a phasing plan that maximizes your time and money and minimizes the hassle to your residents and customers.

What is a phasing plan?

A phasing plan is a way of splitting areas of a property into several blocks, or phases, so that as paving or other work is being done in one block, the others are free for use and regular parking and business operations can still occur. Whether you need asphalt paving, sealcoating, pothole repair, crack seal, striping or any other asphalt maintenance work, it can all be done in a phased approach that works for the needs of your business.

Do I really need to have a phasing plan?

Yes! (Unless you don’t mind shutting down your business for a week?) As an entrepreneur, HOA, or property manager, your parking lots and roadways are the arteries of your business. If they’re completely blocked off or inaccessible, customers are turned away and residents are left frustrated with nowhere to park. A phasing plan allows you to keep your business operations going smoothly while still conducting essential maintenance to beautify your property and keep it safe for drivers and pedestrians alike.

How does phasing work?

As our trained estimators create a customized phasing plan for your property, they will consider traffic flow and capacity, the number of entrances and exits, and any relevant aspects of business operation so that we can tailor a solution to your needs. We pay special attention to ensuring visitors have a safe and accessible way to enter and exit your facility at all times during the construction process.

From there, we’ll develop a color-coded phase map to delineate areas to be blocked off for work on each particular day. The estimator will advise you on where to restrict parking and the type of information to provide to tenants or other visitors so that they can plan appropriately.

Once the designated area is cleared of cars, our crews will barricade it off and get to work making your parking lot beautiful.

We get it!
