It provides an accessible solution that will save you time, money, and frustration.

Common Challenges with Pavement Maintenance

  • Securing best return on investment
  • Time involved in finding a contractor
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Knowing and receiving the proper repairs
  • Capable, Efficient Project Management

Thinking about pavement maintenance can be a daunting task, especially if you haven’t had a great experience with past contractors. We understand many property managers struggle with these issues, and we’ve expertly calibrated our Diamond Standard solution in order to take these worries off your plate.


Our 4-Step Solution:

1. Document Your Unique Goals

Whether you have three properties or thirty-three, being able to view your investments as a whole, as well as individually, is key to gaining the perspective needed to create appropriate goals for today and years to come.

We build solutions based on your:
  • Overall corporate maintenance philosophy
  • Aesthetic requirements
  • Budgets and timelines
  • Functional needs

2. Perform Assessments and Rating

There are a myriad of items to assess when it comes to determining the state of your surfaces. We document the entire site and put that all into an objective, easy-to-digest standard rating system. This system, called a PASER Rating, assigns a number from 1 to 10 (“Failed” to “Excellent”) based on the condition of the area. Then we take it a step further and provide a handy document that evaluates and scores your portfolio as a whole.

Just a few of the things we scope out:

  • Asphalt pavement condition
  • Concrete areas:
    • Sidewalks
    • Curbs
    • Gutters
  • ADA parking compliance
  • Striping
  • Speed bump location and conditions
  • Missing/damaged signage
  • Catch basins
  • Wheel stops, bollards

3. Prioritize Work and Determine Best ROI

Pavement is an investment, and we want to be sure you put your money in the right places at the most optimal time. Think of this as your crystal ball for the next decade. Once we assess your property, we give you a forecast for what’s to come in terms of maintenance and spending—an invaluable asset to your short term and long range planning.
