As a homeowners association (HOA), maintaining curb appeal through well-kept roads, driveways and parking lots is critical. However, managing asphalt surfaces effectively presents challenges without proper guidance. Pavement maintenance requires specialized equipment, materials and expertise that sealcoating, pothole and crack repair companies have.
With over 30 years of experience, Erickson Asphalt provides paving, sealcoating and parking lot maintenance services to HOAs across Minneapolis. We use state-of-the-art techniques to maximize the lifespan of your asphalt surfaces.
Selecting a professional paving contractor for your HOA requires careful evaluation. The company you choose will have a major impact on the success of your asphalt repair or construction initiative and the long-term durability of the finished product. Below are key factors associations should consider when researching paving companies:
Experience and Reputation: An established history of quality work with community groups, commercial clients and municipalities is essential. Ask about completed public and private sector projects, along with client reviews. HOAs should verify licensure, insurance coverage, and safety ratings as well.
Services Offered: Beyond basic paving and sealing, some projects require specialized services like crack filling, catch basin repair, speed bump installation or striping. Determine what solutions a prospective company provides to meet all of your needs through each phase.
References and Reviews: Speaking with homeowners associations who have used their services is invaluable during the vetting process. Online reviews also provide transparent insight into a paving contractor’s strengths and areas for improvement.
Competitive, Transparent Pricing: While it’s important not to choose a company based on price alone, associations with budget constraints require accurate quotes and flexibility. Make sure you understand precisely what the bid entails before signing a contract.

Once you’ve vetted and selected a paving company for your HOA project, clear communication and reasonable expectations are vital for a smooth process. Productive collaboration requires effort from both the contractor and association. We recommend HOAs consider the following best practices:
Communication: Designate a single point of contact within your HOA to coordinate directly with the paving company’s project foreman and manager. Schedule progress meetings and maintain written documentation of all project plans, timelines and approvals.
Scheduling: Be realistic about project duration, accounting for potential delays due to weather, permitting issues or material shortages. Discuss contingency plans for multi-day projects spanning over a week or more. Communicate scheduling changes promptly with residents.
From neighborhood roads and parking areas to main driveways and walkways, the asphalt surfaces maintained by your HOA see heavy daily use. Keeping these community assets in peak condition through professional paving, sealcoating, crack filling and other solutions not only preserves aesthetics but protects property values.
