Without striping, a parking lot would be a dangerous and confusing place to park a car. Bold and bright striping can offer some assurance to vehicle owners that other vehicles parked on opposing sides will not be denting their doors. Worn or absent striping will not produce a comfortable or welcoming environment to patrons. A well-maintained parking lot attracts new business and helps ensure return visits.
Driving lanes should be well-defined with additional turn arrows at intersections. Fire lanes and other no-parking areas should be marked clearly and include additional signage if necessary.
Striped parking spaces should be large enough to allow easy access for both large and small vehicles. The proper number and placement of accessible spaces should be assigned a high priority. The Americans with Disabilities Act is very specific concerning parking space requirements, including the required markings, signage, grade, and size. Our knowledgeable team always remains current on ADA requirements to ensure complete compliance. We are also knowledgeable of all local ordinances governing parking lot requirements.
Depending on the volume and type of traffic using your parking lot, you will need to have stripes and markings reapplied periodically. In the Houston area, most parking lot striping needs to be reapplied every 18 to 24 months to provide the necessary visibility. The removal of existing markings may be necessary before restriping to prevent the so-called ghost markings that can confuse drivers and detract from the parking lot’s appearance.
Parking lot striping is a cost-effective procedure, especially when performed in conjunction with crack filling, sealcoating, and other routine preventive maintenance procedures. Before restriping your parking lot, however, talk with one of our experts about the option of a new layout design. A redesign may add more parking spaces, improve convenience to both drivers and pedestrians, create a more attractive appearance of the parking lot, and add safety features. A simple redesign may also be necessary to stay compliant with the ADA.
