The Benefits of Parking Lot Striping

The Benefits of Parking Lot Striping
  • Opening Intro -

    There's a lot that goes into maintaining your parking lot.

    When it starts to show signs of wear-and-tear, you might need to repair, fill, or even give it a fresh, new layer of sealcoat.

-------------------------------------

One important yet often overlooked aspect of parking lot care is striping, which contributes to your parking lot’s navigability and attractiveness. The benefits of parking lot striping are immense.

If you’re interested in learning some of the reasons why you should restore your parking lot’s lines, keep on reading.

Prevents Damage

When your parking spaces aren’t clearly marked, it could lead to one of two things: a lot of dented doors, or a desolate-looking parking lot where everyone’s parked far, far away from each other.

A parking lot full of clearly marked spaces will make people feel safer and reduce the number of door dings and other types of vehicle damage. It’ll also give your customers more room to park. Instead of parking far away from other drivers, they can safely pull their car into adjacent spaces.

Boosts Curb Appeal

Another one of the benefits of parking lot striping is that it improves curb appeal. If you neglect your parking lot, customers will start to notice.

Dents, cracks, potholes, and fading lines aren’t just dangerous — they’re unattractive, too. Before customers walk through your front door, the exterior of your building is their main focus.

If it looks dull, poorly maintained, and unsafe, it can affect their decision to shop at your store. Restoring your parking lot’s lines, along with performing other basic maintenance, can make it look great.

Makes Parking Easier

Improperly or poorly marked parking spaces can make it hard for customers to know where they can park their vehicle. They might end up parking somewhere they shouldn’t, driving around in circles, or leaving your lot out of frustration.

Your parking lot needs to accommodate vehicles of all different shapes and sizes, from sedans to SUVs. If your lines are too narrow, you might need to widen them so customers with larger cars can safely and efficiently park them.

Reduces Liability

As the owner of a commercial property, it’s your responsibility to maintain pedestrian crossings, fire lines, handicap parking spaces, and arrows that clearly mark the flow of traffic.

If a customer or employee is injured because of your failure to maintain these markings, you could be held liable for their personal injuries. In this scenario, you wouldn’t just need to handle their medical bills — you’d also have to compensate them for their lost wages, lost earning capacity, and emotional trauma.

other valuable tips:

Caring for your parking lot, including its lines, reduces your liability. This can save you time, money, and protect your reputation in the case of an unfortunate accident.

If your parking lot’s lines are in need of maintenance, it’s important to hire a reliable, knowledgeable asphalt contractor to fix them. There’s a lot to consider when you’re restriping your pavement, like the type of paint you’ll use, the ideal width of your parking lot spaces, and more. The contractor you choose should be able to run you through the process and help you select the best possible option for your business.
