Parking Lot Striping
As you may already know, asphalt paved parking lots do need maintenance from time to time. One known asphalt paving maintenance technique is to have your parking lot re-striped to add a nicer look and to keep pedestrians safe in parking lots.
The repainting (striping) of an asphalt lot usually takes place every one to two years; The timing of when it is needed depends on the amount of traffic driving on the surface, weather and the condition of the asphalt.
As a rule of thumb, the number of parking spaces on the lot will typically designate how many handicapped spaces are required. By using high-quality paint when asphalt striping, you will ensure a greater life expectancy of the clean look of your paved lot.
The lines must be as bright as possible for people who will park in between them later. The striping also serves to direct the parking lot traffic to ensure the safety of drivers. You want to make it as easy as possible for drivers and pedestrians walking to be able to see where to go. Installing and painting speed bumps bright yellow assist in slowing traffic down to keep people safe. The proper signs must be displayed on the parking lots as well, i.e., crosswalks, loading zone, and handicapped signs.
