Is Sealcoating Appropriate for Subdivisions and HOAs?
Whether the property in question is an upscale gated community, a condominium complex, or a subdivision, committee and board members owe a fiduciary duty to the homeowners that they represent. This means that they are expected to be prudent when spending the fees and dues that the association collects, and this can involve ensuring that funds are spent to preserve the community’s assets. It also means that they are expected to help homeowners protect the value of their properties as well as attract buyers if they choose to sell. Sealcoating the pavements covered by an HOA can help fulfill all of the above obligations.
How Does Sealcoating Help Preserve the Assets of an HOA or Subdivision?
Asphalt sealcoating Treasure Coast pavements can help prevent damage from the sun, automotive fluids, water penetration, and other manmade or natural threats. Studies have shown that parking lot sealcoating can sometimes double the life of an asphalt lot when compared to a similar lot that does not have a sealant applied at regular intervals. In addition, if repairs are needed, they are typically less frequent and less costly on pavements that have been sealed regularly. Furthermore, a reputable sealcoating contractor will ensure that significant cracks are repaired and the pavement cleaned before applying a sealcoat, so this gives you an opportunity to catch any routine pavement maintenance that you might have overlooked.
How Does Asphalt Sealcoating Subdivisions Help Protect Property Values?
As real estate agents know, in large part, property values depend on how desirable potential buyers find the neighborhood in which a home is located. A subdivision often has numerous amenities, including a clubhouse, swimming pool, playgrounds, gyms, jogging tracks, sports courts, and walking trails. When deciding on the amount to offer, or whether to make an offer at all, potential buyers tend to evaluate both the home and the neighborhood. If the pavements, including the streets and parking lots in the subdivision, appear unsafe, unsightly, or neglected, buyers may feel that the property values in the subdivision are inflated, so they offer less than the homeowners are asking.
How Does Sealcoating HOA Pavements Help Attract Buyers?
Most people prefer to purchase a home in a safe, well-kept neighborhood. Having a sealcoating contractor apply a high-quality sealant on a regular basis can help present the proper image to assure potential buyers that they, their vehicles, and their children will be safe from harm inflicted by damaged pavements or poorly maintained facilities.
How Often Should Sealcoating Be Applied?
Experienced sealcoating companies know that there is no universal schedule for sealcoating HOA pavements. The amount of traffic is an important factor in determining an appropriate schedule. For example, main arteries may need to be sealed every two years, while lightly trafficked cul-de-sacs may only need sealing every three or four years. Choose an experienced, reputable sealcoating contractor to recommend the right schedule for your subdivision or HOA.
