3 Tips for Finding the Right Pavement Maintenance Partner for Your Property
If you’re a property manager you likely need paving services for your commercial or residential building or complex’s parking and access areas. When you’re searching for a new maintenance partner, do you know where to start? Here at Pavecon, we’re a trusted partner for property managers, and we’re proud to share the following three tips for finding the right partner with you.
1. Check Licensure and Insurance
When you hire a pavement maintenance partner, you want to know the contractor or company has the licenses and insurance to cover the work. If you hire a partner that’s unlicensed or uninsured, the liability for anything that happens on your property while work is in progress rests with you.
A hallmark of a reputable partner is paperwork or online information that clearly states certifications and insurance. In addition, membership in industry-related organizations or cooperatives such as the Sealant Waterproofing and Restoration Institute indicates that a contractor or company is an industry professional. It also suggests their familiarity with the latest standards, policies, technologies, techniques and products.
2. Review Services and Estimates
Before signing on with a pavement maintenance partner, make sure they offer the services and estimates that keep your property’s exterior in tip-top shape and maximize your budget. At Pavecon, for example, we provide a wide array of pavement surfaces services to commercial and residential property managers, helping them to save money in the long run. Our services include the following options:
- ADA modifications
- Crack and joint sealing
- Dumpster pads
- Joint and crack sealing
- Loading docks
- Parking lots
- Road construction and repair
- Sealcoat and striping
If you don’t see the services you need, such as pavement sealing or striping, for example, query the company or move on in your search. Also, many companies offer free estimates. Scheduling estimates is a great way to understand how each company’s services might mesh with your budget.
3. Request Examples and Testimonials
There’s nothing like seeing other clients’ projects and hearing their reviews of a pavement maintenance partner’s work. When you’re in search mode, ask contractors or companies to share finished projects and client testimonials with you. Knowing what to expect as per potential partners’ work and communication styles can help your decision-making. Also, ask about the type and size of clients they work with to see if you fit into their customer service profile.
As you might imagine, pavement maintenance partners’ experience and knowledge directly relate to their project examples and client testimonials. So when you encounter a company like Pavecon that’s been serving all sizes of clients since 1992, you can expect to hear about an incredible range of projects, equipment, technologies, techniques, challenges and solutions.
