Keeping tenants happy is one of the most important tasks of managing a commercial asset. And what any sophisticated landlord understands is that there is a direct link between bottom line of the building and your tenant's overall satisfaction -- both inside and outside the building.

Not only can a well-maintained parking lot help command higher rental rates, but it can also positively impact your tenant's experience. Maximize tenant satisfaction and minimize liability with these five tips.

Painting parking lot lines is a great stand-alone business or add-on to an existing sealcoating or property maintenance business. It's fast, satisfying work and it helps improve traffic flow and a building's aesthetics.
Whether you are a professional who works on parking lots for a living and you have years of experience in the business, or you are just getting started, you want to make sure that you have the surface of the parking lot completely prepared before you do any work on it including crack filling, seal coating, and parking lot line painting.
When you first started out in the asphalt business, you probably were fine just using the smaller drums and totes for your sealers. You had time (and the patience!) to drive to sealer plants, transfer, fill, clean, and maintain the containers. However, as we all know, the fastest path to success is to leverage efficiency. If you want your business to grow, you will need to make sure that the equipment that you are using is growing along with it. You are not going to have an easy time covering the parking lot of a sports center or a shopping mall if you only have small drums.
