If you are a property manager for retail shopping centers there are many ways you can prepare your parking lot for the busy holiday season. Cassidy Paving is here to help you prepare your property for winter and beyond. Here are the things you can do now to make sure that your parking lot remains in a safe condition throughout the New England winter.
There is one thing for certain, repairs don’t stop during the holiday season. If you have any outstanding repairs such as potholes and cracks in your parking lot paving, they will only get worse during the winter. Don’t wait to repair any of these things. Because Massachusetts tends to see some pretty harsh and extended winters, the thaw and freeze cycle can be especially destructive. Repairing any issues in your asphalt pavement now will keep your parking lot usable throughout the holiday season and into the new year.
One thing you will want to consider as a business owner is the safety of customers while on your property. You have a certain level of liability with your parking lot and faded or outdated striping may cause confusion and even accidents. There are many benefits to updating your parking lot stripes including safety, curb appeal, being ADA compliant, and maximizing the space that you have. Outdated striping happens quite often, especially if your retail shopping center was originally constructed over a decade ago. Cassidy Paving can help you with any repairs that you may have and finish it off with a fresh coat of striping for your parking lot. This will be extra helpful for you, your customers, and the surrounding traffic flow if you have your parking lot in perfect condition.
Professional Snow Removal
Regardless of the presence of ice and snow, the Cassidy Paving team knows that the holiday season will be an active time for shopping centers. This means that keeping your parking lot in a safe driving condition is essential to normal business operations. If you are a property manager or business owner located in the New England area, it is best practice to have a licensed and insured commercial snow removal company on contract for when the snow begins to fall. Most services are flexible, and our team offers scalable contracts on a per push, per storm, or per season basis. Having a company on call will allow you to remove any ice and snow that could hinder customers using your parking lot.
