To successfully maintain your commercial property, you should stripe your parking lot on a regular basis. Professionally parking lot striping promotes a safe and attractive business atmosphere, and an unattractive parking lot can severely damage a client’s first impression of your business.
How Often Does A Parking Lot Need To Be Re-striped?
You should plan to re-stripe your parking lot on an annual basis, but you might be able to wait up to 18 months before re-striping is necessary. Normal wear and tear will occur, but there are factors that can extend or decrease the life of your stripes. Factors include:
- Traffic Volume – How much traffic does your parking lot handle? If your parking lot is filled with vehicles during all hours of the day and night, it is going to cause damage to the paint. If you have a relatively quiet parking lot, your stripes will probably last for a longer period of time.
- Severe Weather – Severe temperatures and excessive precipitation can damage your paint.
- Paint Quality and Thickness – The quality of the original striping job can help you predict the lifespan of your parking lot paint.
Benefits of Parking Lot Striping
Maintaining visible stripes can benefit your business in several ways. First, striping contributes to the overall exterior image of your business, and clean and professional lines in the parking lot can promote a positive first impression. Striping also creates a safe and orderly system for vehicles to maneuver through the lot. Additionally, you can clearly reserve certain parking stalls for handicap patrons and members of your company. Finally, re-striping fire lanes and other important areas can ensure that your parking lot meets local safety standards.
