The Parking Lot Striping Process

Maintaining a safe and secure parking lot should always be at the top of mind for commercial real estate owners who operate or manage lots as part of their business model. 


Many factors come into play when providing a safe parking lot for clients and customers. Poor lighting, potholes, faded striping, cracks, and other surface damages can all result in potential liabilities if someone gets injured on your property.

Additionally, ensuring that your parking lot meets the American with Disabilities Act helps to prevent possible litigation for not meeting these requirements.

The Lot Striping Process

When you decide that it's time to stripe your parking lot, knowing what goes into the process helps you plan for the project.

It's important to note that anytime you're planning on doing parking lot maintenance, parking spaces get taken out of use. Depending on the nature of your business, this could impact parking space available for customers, employees, visitors, residents, or guests.

Getting your lot inspected before getting the lot painted with new lines is a smart idea. If you discover damages such as cracks, buckles, or potholes, we suggest repairing these problems before painting.

You'll also want to be sure that you make alternative parking arrangements for affected parties when you're planning on completing any work that affects the capacity of your lot.

If feasible, alert anyone who might get affected by the upgrades before the scheduled maintenance to give them a heads up, and to help them plan accordingly.

For best results, the contractor providing parking lot striping services will likely sweep the lot to remove surface debris, including dirt and trash. By doing so, this helps to ensure strong paint bonds on the surface areas.

Further, you'll want to take any steps you can to keep the parking lot dry. While you might not be able to control the weather, turning off nearby sprinkling systems for at least twenty-four hours before the project begins is a wise idea.

Generally, the company you've contracted to complete your line striping project will provide the exact details associated with your project. In many cases, they complete the painting job relatively quickly, efficiently, and in an orderly fashion. They'll take care to section off areas as they are getting painted and direct traffic away from freshly painted lot space.

They'll make sure to mark accessible parking spots to accommodate those with disabilities so that you meet local, state, and federal guidelines outlined in ADA regulations.
