When funds are limited, phasing your asphalt maintenance project may be a more successful approach. While the most economic way to do a project is to complete it in full because it keeps mobilization costs down and locks in the price of materials (which can fluctuate in the future), that may not always be feasible. The most frequent reason is budget.
Like many other construction materials, asphalt is at its all-time high in price. It is becoming more common that customers are starting to phase the projects. If you have a large parking lot or your parking lot has trouble spots, phasing by the zone or area may
benefit your budget. Phasing by zone or area, allows you to handle the worst parts first then going back
to finish it.
September is the biggest time for most property managers and other commercial property owners to start their budget for the following year. It’s important to walk your parking lot to search for any cracks, potholes, and other degradation. This will help identify what you may or may not need to budget for.
