First impressions are important for business owners, and they start with your property. Whether you’re looking for new business or a potential buyer, improving your commercial property’s appearance and value can be done quickly with a bit of exterior maintenance. Refining and repairing your building’s exterior, parking lot and driveway is a small investment that can produce significant returns. Start enhancing your property value with the tips below.
Clean Up Your Parking Lot
The parking lot is effectively the first engagement that clients will have with your business’s physical location. Thus, it makes sense to keep its appearance touched up on a regular basis. Keeping the lot’s parking stripes looking clean and new by having them repainted every so often shows a good attention to detail, and it’s also helpful and convenient to visitors when the parking lot is clearly sectioned. Make sure the signs are clean and legible as well. A good street sweeping service also goes a long way.
Asphalt Repairs to Welcome Visitors
An old asphalt lot develops cracks and potholes over the years. Not only can it be unsightly, it can also be a nuisance or even a hazard to navigate over potholes in the parking lot. Both of these will cut into your curb appeal and property value, so look for paving contractors to schedule repairs when the need arises. Also, a fresh application of sealcoat can restore the lifespan of asphalt lots over 5 years old.
Restore Your Exterior
Whatever the state of your building’s interior, if the exterior looks shabby, people will assume that the inside does as well. Don’t let exterior wear give clients the wrong idea. Small and simple repairs add up to highlight selling points, including:
- Reapplying paint to exterior surfaces
- Filling in holes and cracks
- Repairing or replacing loose shingles
- Keeping landscaping healthy and good-looking
