Parking Lot Striping 101 by Elite Paving
Knowing When You Need Line Striping Services
Don’t overlook the need for parking lot restriping just because you visit your property frequently. Faint lines can make it difficult for first-time visitors to park safely. Look at your pavement with fresh eyes and ask yourself
- Are your parking stalls and traffic lanes clearly marked?
- Can you see all the lines when you pull into a space?
- Are the accessible spaces easy to spot?
Can you read the text on your curbs or asphalt?
- If any of these answers is “no,” it’s time to call Elite Paving for a quote.
The Parking Lot Line Striping Process
The pavement marking process typically involves the following steps:
- Assessment: Before the striping process begins, the contractor will assess your pavement’s condition to identify any necessary repairs or preparation work required.
- Layout: Once the assessment is complete, your paving contractor will design a parking lot based on the property’s size, traffic flow, and the average number of cars.
- Surface preparation: The contractor will prepare the surface for painting. This may include cleaning the surface, sweeping or blowing debris, and drying the surface to ensure the paint adheres correctly.
- Line striping: The contractor will use specialized equipment, such as a striping machine, to apply paint or thermoplastic materials to create the lines and markings on the asphalt surface.
- Drying and curing: The paint or thermoplastic materials need time to dry and cure thoroughly after striping. This can take several hours or longer, depending on the weather conditions.
