How Property Managers Can Stay on Top of Spring Maintenance


Last Updated on February 28, 2024

If you’re a property manager, you’re probably well acquainted with the many property maintenance issues that accompany the spring season. From building maintenance to landscaping and beyond, there are several things you can do to make this time of year as smooth and productive as possible.

Building Exterior

After a long winter, building exteriors should be examined for possible damage from storms and in preparation for the warm seasons ahead. You’ll want to assess the roof for loose or damaged shingles and flashing, as well as overhanging branches. Gutters and downspouts should be checked for damage from snow, ice, and rain. Air conditioning units should be checked for damage or debris, and they should be properly cleaned. As you’re assessing the building’s exterior features, be sure to look for water stains near seams, which could indicate water damage.

Yard and Landscaping

Spring is the best time of year to prepare yards for the coming months. You’ll probably want to have trees and shrubs pruned, and you’ll want to make sure lawn care services have been arranged. Additionally, you’ll want to check for any broken sprinklers or sprinkler pipes that may have frozen and need to be repaired or replaced.  Remember to double-check that sprinklers are directed away from concrete or asphalt pavement to prevent premature aging and damage to those surfaces.

Parking Lot

The parking lot and all other paved surfaces provide tenants and clients access to your property, endure heavy traffic, and can present liability hazards if not well maintained. Although asphalt is one of the most important parts of a property, asphalt maintenance is often the most overlooked. Check the parking lot and other paved surfaces for potholes, cracks, or asphalt that is beginning to deteriorate. Look for any areas that may have puddles or pools of standing water, and make sure the pavement stripes are clearly visible.

A little springtime maintenance will not only prepare your property for the approaching seasons, but it will prevent small problems from becoming major headaches later on. If you find that your parking areas need some maintenance, Top Job Asphalt is happy to provide free estimates for any project, from pothole repair to crack sealing and seal coating.

Great company to work with. We contacted Top Job to repair a county road that we dug across for an irrigation line. They were very professional yet friendly. Our job was completed quickly. We recommend this company.

I’m not sure how the service actually is, but some old guy in a Top Job Toyota was riding my butt today and flipped me off, or it was maybe an aggressive wave at the red light near the Logan library. Hope his day gets better. 12/8 at 230

Did a great job on the 3" overlay for my very old and deteriorated half circle driveway. Looks brand new. All the transitions to concrete are near perfectly matched when I wasn't sure they could do it. It's almost weird now not feeling the bump driving out of the garage or over our bridge.

Top Job paved our asphalt driveways and we couldn't be happier. The service, quality and price were the best I could find and I looked everywhere! Great job guys! I'll be calling back when I start my next project.

I'm so impressed!!😀 Top Job has done such excellent work on my neighbor's driveway ... I'm so jealous. It's absolutely beautiful, and I can't believe how smooth it turned out. It's just perfect. What a great company!

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very impressed with the quality of their work and the organization of the company. The project estimator was spot on as to when the bid would be received and the work was professional  from start to finish. I appreciated the opportunity for a walkthrough inspection after the crack filling was completed as I had some very large cracks in the asphalt. I give this company a ten out of ten (which I really do) and highly recommend them.
