Parking Lot Striping FAQs
What kind of pavement markings are there?
Parking lot striping is more than just lines to show where to park. Professional line striping uses specialized paint to create traffic lanes, arrows, accessible parking symbols, numbers, letters, hazard stripes, and more. True paving pros are fully licensed and trained in all laws regarding traffic symbols, so you can rest assured your new parking lot will comply with all municipal regulations.
What is the parking lot striping process?
First, your dedicated paving consultant will work with you to design an efficient parking lot that maximizes space and meets your needs as well as budget. Next, professionals use special traffic paint that is not just highly reflective but also provides traction. Using specialized equipment like sprayers and rollers, contractors paint straight lines and symbols to your specifications.
How do I prepare for parking lot painting?
Asphalt needs to be clean and free of old markings. Many paving contractors will use sandblasters and other equipment to clean the parking lot. All commercial property owners need to do is set aside time for the job.
Will parking lot striping interrupt my business for a long time?
Not at all! With the right planning, expert paving contractors can come in and paint outside of business hours, and traffic paint only takes hours to cure.
How often should I get stripes painted?
While it would be nice if parking lot markings could last as long as your asphalt, even traffic paint wears away. In higher traffic areas like apartment complexes or busy commercial parking lots, new parking markings should be painted yearly. Lower traffic asphalt areas only need repainting every 2-3 years.
