Rejuvenating a Subdivision
Are you part of a Homeowner’s Association or live in a subdivision? Subdivisions are great to move into and offer many benefits, especially when they are new. However, just as anything else over time they age. Uniform Paving & Sealcoating provides services for rejuvenating a subdivision regardless of its age.
Subdivisions are major commercial land development projects that can take years to create and offer excellent housing. As buyers begin to purchase and move into the properties, it becomes their responsibility to maintain the main roads in communal areas. This is accomplished via homeowner’s associations whose primary goal is to keep everything maintained for the benefit of all.
Sadly, many subdivisions are in deterioration due to poor maintenance. As paving and sealcoating professionals, we have come across developments where the roads are over 10 to 30 years old and need desperate repair. Some of these roads have never had any maintenance, such as resurfacing or sealing.
Why is road maintenance necessary?
The number one reason you as a property owner should be concerned about the condition of the roads in your division is safety!
Cracks and potholes can form quickly and result in damage to vehicles and even pedestrians.
Generally, any paving project should be maintained every 3-5 years via sealcoating and inspection to prevent deterioration such as those mentioned above. Uniform Paving & Sealcoating has a specially equipped van that measures the quality of the asphalt it travels over. Our van can give a count of the cracks and integrity of the pavement before work begins.
Keep in mind that every year maintenance is delayed the cost to repair your asphalt pavement goes up. If maintenance is performed regularly, it is cost effective and extends the life of your roads.
Poorly maintained roads also lower your property values. And can have a negative impact if you are looking to sell your property and relocate. Your main road or driveway is a critical factor that potential buyers look at before they make an offer.
You can have a beautifully landscaped yard, and the exterior of your home can be polished until it gleams, but if the road in front of it is in disrepair, it ruins it. The road into your subdivision and the driveway to your home are your welcoming mat to visitors. With your road being the first impression of your property, you want it to be a good one.
How to rejuvenate the roads in your subdivision?
The first step to working on the roads in your development is to reach out for estimates from paving companies. Uniform Paving & Sealcoating offers free quotes to those who contact us.
Take the estimates that you have obtained and hold a meeting with your homeowner’s association to discuss the pros and cons of each company before voting.
To help you prepare for what to ask a quote on, we suggest getting quotes on the following services to bring life back into your paved roads.
- Subdivision Paving
- Resurfacing Pavement
- Parking Lot Services for Communal Areas
- Regular Maintenance
- Driveway and Road Repairs
If the roads in your division are pushing the age of 20 or more years, you also need to obtain quotes on the building of subdivision roads. Asphalt pavement has a long lifespan, but eventually, it needs to be replaced entirely to be effective.
Choose a quality contractor to begin your paving project because asphalt care is vital to your community. The contractor you choose has the power to lower your property values with shoddy work.
