Reasons to Use Brick Walkways
Brick walkways comprise interlocking paving stones with durability that far surpasses concrete and asphalt. You can choose from preset pavers or work with your local hardscaping company on a custom design that complements the marketing of your company. The pavers are non-skid and non-slip, adding an important safety element for you, your employees and customers. What makes this installment such a valuable investment is their longevity. Pavers will not crack, fade, or chip over time. This will create the perfect aesthetic appeal to keep customers coming back, and bringing new ones in the door thanks to your professional appearance.
One of the key benefits of brick pavers is their surface. With a flat surface, shoveling and snow blowing during the winter becomes a much easier task. How? Not only are they flat, but there are not any joints that will get caught. This will be a much safer option for you or the employee maintaining the exterior, but will make the process go much quicker—saving time, which is money.
Laws: As a business owner, it is your legal responsibility to ensure customers have clear paths in parking lots and walkways within 24 hours of a snowstorm. If you are not aware of your responsibilities, be sure to catch up on the state’s laws for snow removal.
Getting Started: Make sure you are covered by having a winter plan and schedule. This will have the person or people responsible for shoveling. Prior to an event, make sure walkways and parking lots are salted.
Removal Process: Have the appropriate equipment readily available. If the snowstorm is during business hours, with customers still coming in, you can have someone on duty for removal. Gauge the weather and have a few rounds in. If it occurs after hours, while you have 24 hours to clear, if you will have customers coming in, it is best to address as quickly as possible.
