HOAs, or homeowner associations, are responsible for providing an array of amenities and services for a neighborhood. Two of the primary responsibilities are to ensure the community has a safe, enjoyable, and attractive environment and to protect property values. Most of the time, this includes the maintenance of streets and other paved areas, including clubhouse parking lots, tennis courts, bike paths, jogging trails, and more.
In order to maximize the life expectancy of these areas, they must be properly taken care of. Whether you need cracks sealed on streets or stripes repainted on parking lots, you want to make sure that you choose the right contractor. If your HOA community is located in or near Mooresville, North Carolina, let Prime Paving and Sealcoating help.
We have been family-owned and operated since 1956. We have the experience and expertise necessary to handle all of your asphalt needs. Below are some tips to help your HOA choose the right asphalt contractor.
Things to Consider When Choosing an Asphalt Contractor
What Services do You Need?
First of all, it’s important to know what type of services you need. Some of the most common needs for HOA communities include:
- Parking lot striping
- Sealcoating on walking/jogging/biking trails
- Sealcoating on parking lots
- Comprehensive asphalt maintenance
- Crack repair
It is important to note that not every contractor is going to offer the same services and it’s going to be much easier in many ways if you choose one that does. This way, you can avoid confusion with scheduling the various services and in some cases, it may save you money without cutting corners.
What is the Scope of the Project?
The next thing you’ll want to consider is the scope of the project. After all, there’s a lot less to paving a space for 20 vehicles versus one for 100+ cars. A large-scale project requires more workers and more equipment, as well as logistic difficulties when it comes to controlling traffic around the work area. However, the experts at Prime Paving and Sealcoating can handle projects of all sizes.
Can the Contractor Limit Disruption?
The residents in the HOA community must be able to get into and out of their homes as well as have access to the amenities. Therefore, you want to work with your contractor to ensure that disruptions and inconveniences are limited. The contractor must be able to communicate the details of the job, such as the areas that will be affected as well as the times and dates that the work will be done. This needs to be communicated in advance so that residents have time to make arrangements to deal with it.
What are the Contractor’s Qualifications?
Before you hire a contractor, it’s important to note that there are many things that contribute to their qualifications. For example:
- How much experience do they have with HOAs and HOA projects?
- How much training have the employees received?
- Do they have sufficient insurance (workers’ comp and liability) to protect their workers from injury and your property from damage?
- Can they provide you with references that you can reach out to and find out about the quality of their work?
A reputable contractor will be willing to answer these and any other questions you might have, as well as provide you with any documentation you request.
