You would assume that banks understand the value of a dollar – yet many bank parking lots seem to be vastly undervalued with little or no money being spent on ‘preventative maintenance’.
Just like a car or a house, a parking lot needs to ongoing preventative care, especially here in the Northeast with the large swings in temperature putting stress on paving.
And, of course, from a fiscal point of view, parking lots and sidewalks are usually the second largest capital expenditure for banks – and they will see an immediate return on their investment when their customers feel valued that they took the time and effort to make the surroundings as nice as possible.
Bank customers appreciate driving into a well-cared for parking lot with clear markings, and walking up to the front door on a smooth, level sidewalk. While a great looking landscape is good, there is also the safety factor. If your parking lot or sidewalks have large cracks in them, they pose a safety hazard – especially for ladies in high heels! Also, it is a good idea to check and make sure that your handicap parking stalls are ADA compliant.
