Parking Lot Maintenance: More Than Just a Phase

In ordinary times, many businesses and HOAs in the Central Texas area schedule essential parking lot repair and maintenance for the summer months. That’s when they take advantage of favorable paving weather, and the maintenance helps protect their pavements from extreme temperatures and damaging UV rays that can weaken the asphalt if left unaddressed. A quality asphalt contractor will help navigate its clients through the process of phasing the construction or repairs over several days or weeks so that the work can be completed without compromising the flow of traffic or ability to conduct business.

For HOAs in particular, summer is a perfect time to conduct asphalt maintenance and repair. Given that more residents are away from their homes during daytime hours or are on vacation, it’s much easier to block off parking lots or roadways with minimal disruption.

For retailers, property managers and other businesses, scheduling parking lot repair work to occur overnight is a common approach that helps reduce any impact on business operations.

This year, however, is a different story. Many of us have found that our daily routines and ways of conducting business have been disrupted or altered completely due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Unique challenges

While essential personnel continue reporting to work, many others are working remotely, caring for family members and staying home far more than usual. As a result, it can be challenging for HOAs, apartments and other communities to carry out much-needed construction and maintenance projects given that most of their parking lots remain full day and night.

Businesses and commercial properties are finding their parking lots full to overflowing with increased traffic from customers and service/delivery vehicles, particularly grocery stores and other essential businesses. Many have extended business hours and more frequent deliveries from vendors or other service providers, which means even less flexibility to conduct repairs and other parking lot or roadway maintenance.

That’s where we come in!
