The lines and markings on parking lots help drivers navigate, and pedestrians know where they can cross safely. Striping and markings are essential for keeping parking lots ADA compliant, something that can cost the business a fortune if violated.
Whenever there are stripes or markings that have faded or are missing altogether, it can cause traffic issues and all sorts of hazards and accidents. Clear markings and striping will prevent any compliance and liability issues. A clearly marked commercial parking lot will be safer and look nicer while also fully complying with local, state, and federal laws.

Whether you're building a new lot or replacing an old parking lot, markings will help define the layout and flow of traffic. With so many things to consider, developing the perfect layout for striping & marking is a task that's best left in the hands of professionals. Here are some factors to think about:
Parking Stall Angles: Smaller lots or tighter areas are better suited for angled stalls. Angled stalls allow you to have more stalls, but limit traffic to one-way. While angled stalls are great, the size of the lot and traffic flow may require your parking lot to use straight-in-stalls.
Entrances and exits: The surrounding roads, buildings, and loading docks on the property must be considered when creating a parking lot layout.
ADA requirements: American Disabilities Act has strict requirements on the number, size and location of accessible parking stalls.
Our team will work with you to create an effective parking lot layout to maximize parking stalls, and traffic flow and meet current ADA standards.
There is no singular answer to when you need to restripe your lot because a lot depends on how your lot is used. A low-traffic lot, such as an office building or apartment complex, will typically last 18-24 months. Fast Food, retail and other high-traffic lots will need to be restriped a lot sooner.
One more factor is to consider the condition of the current parking lot. If you follow a strict parking lot sealcoating schedule, you should be able to go an entire 3 years without restriping. Concrete and asphalt that is cracked or in poor condition will require striping more frequently.
For the most part, NO. Waterborne paint can be fully dry in less than 4 hours. However, on cooler days or days with high humidity, paint may take longer to dry. The project foreman will give you details on when the lot or section of the lot can be reopened for traffic.
