Repair Your Potholes or It Could Cost You More Than You Knowadministrator
Imagine that you’ve just had an amazing year of business, and potential growth on the horizons. Perhaps you just reached maximum occupancy in your thriving property, or hit exponential profit levels post pandemic lockdown. Either way you are on Cloud 9.
A loud thump is heard coming from your parking lot, a destroyed tire and airbags deployed in a vehicle. An important client sues you for negligence of commercial property, injuries, and damages. Even with legal counsel, the court orders you to pay reparations. You are now down 200,000 and forced to foreclose due to lack of funds.
This story might sound far-fetched, but this is exactly what happened in Brevard County, at a friendly neighbourhood restaurant. Melbourne restaurant was ordered to pay more than 230,000 dollars in claims for medical expenses and suffering. This could all have been avoided had they treated and maintained their small parking lot.
Let’s investigate the maximum costs, In terms of every aspect of a sustainable parking lot.
Pothole filling can be completed by yourself, for yourself. Materials and tools costs less than 50 dollars, and you don’t even need to sacrifice that much time. Crack sealing is similar, construction technology has advanced so much in where large asphalt machines aren’t needed for an easy fix. Simply purchase some cold pour crack filler and let it settle for a while. These two quick remedies won’t even cost you a day’s worth of wage.
Doing the math, a yearly cost of less than 500 dollars outweighs foreclosure and bankruptcy.
Parking lot potholes can be just as detrimental as those found on public roads. They can be caused by heavy vehicle traffic, weather fluctuations, and poor construction, among other factors. Failing to repair these potholes can lead to a range of negative consequences, including damage to vehicles, injury to pedestrians, and decreased property values.
For vehicle owners, parking lot potholes can cause damage to tires, rims, and suspension systems. This damage can be expensive to repair and can cause safety issues while driving. Additionally, pedestrians who are walking through a parking lot can be at risk of tripping and falling in potholes, leading to injuries and potential liability for the property owner.
