If you’ve ever parked in a dirt lot, then you know how leaving lines out of a parking lot’s layout can lead to total chaos. People rely on those stripes and marks to figure out where to park and safely cross through intersections. Parking lot striping is important for keeping everyone in the Orlando area safe, including those who live in or near the cities of Kissimmee, Leesburg and Melbourne. Whether your lot’s stripes have faded or you just applied new sealcoating, we’ve got the ability to create clear, bold lines that attract attention and emphasize safety.
WHEN DO YOU NEED TO PLAN FOR PARKING LOT STRIPING?
New parking lots need striping as soon as the surface has had enough time to properly cure. This also applies to lots that we’ve recently sealcoated, and your lot might need re-striping in specific places after a repair. For older pavement, you’ll want to arrange for striping services once the marks begin to chip, peel or fade to the point that they lose around 25% of their visibility. If you’ve recently purchased a property, then it may also be worth scheduling an inspection to see if you want to re-stripe before your company’s grand opening. It’s fairly common for companies to plan parking lot striping to change the layout, such as to add more accessible parking spaces.
WHAT TYPES OF PARKING LOT MARKINGS DO YOU NEED?
Striped parking spaces are important for helping people to park their cars in an orderly manner that makes the best use of the space. We can paint spaces that are designated for accessible vehicles along with smaller ones for motorcycles, depending upon your company’s needs. Driving lane stripes are another important element of safe parking lots, and our company is able to paint crosswalks, fire lanes and other no-parking areas. One of our areas of specialization is in ADA-compliance. We can help you make sure that you have the right number of accessible parking spaces along with the required markings to stay compliant with these important regulations.
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE PARKING LOT STRIPING LASTS?
Similar to painting the walls of your house, the paint needs a smooth, clean surface to adhere to properly. Before we start lot striping projects, we might recommend repairing cracks and other surface blemishes before giving the pavement a final cleanup to remove surface debris. We also choose special paint that is meant to stand up to outdoor weather and friction from heavy traffic. Professional parking lot striping paint should last around one to two years before it needs to be redone. We’ll help you develop a plan for re-striping based upon how much traffic the lot receives along with its location and exposure to direct sunlight.
