Customers start making judgements the minute they arrive to your building and pavement. As a business owner, it’s important to be sending the right image to potential customers and what your business says about you. Every detail adds to the full picture you’re trying to paint of your business and you should be taking every advantage presented to you.
Having good curb appeal encourages potential customers to walk into your building, and immediately sets you up as a reputable business. We can often forget about the importance of the exterior of the building and the parking lots. We’ve put together a list of things for you to pay attention to in your business’s parking lot:
Make Sure Pavement Stripes are Clearly Visible
This is good for safety as well as appearances, and shows customers that you perform regular updates to your property.
Replace any old or worn down signage on your property. Signs can often get weathered so it is good to keep things clean and readable to help avoid any confusion.
Keep Your Pavement Clean
Continuous upkeep improves appearances, and removing litter daily ensures a build up does not occur and it also helps with water drainage.
Fill in the Potholes
Not only are potholes difficult for anybody to drive and walk in they are also dangerous. If you notice a pothole forming, get it repaired right away before it develops into something greater. Potholes will only get bigger and they cost less to fix when they are small. Filling in small cracks right away will help you from needing big repairs later on.
Plants and trees
Planting is a great way to add some natural beauty and a splash of color. It can also make your business seem more welcoming.
Make sure the paint is not chipping, the roof slats look intact and everything is clean and visually appealing. Attention to detail, from clean downspouts to clean windows and a door will help convey the care you put into your business.
