When your parking lot is starting to show signs of wear, you want to do a few things to get the area back to its original luster again. There are many ways you can spruce up your parking lot, from filling in cracks and pot holes to having the entire parking lot repaved.
Perhaps one of the most beneficial upgrades to your business's parking lot is the addition of parking lot striping. You can have this done by your paving contractor as your striping starts to fade. You can also have this service done if you have never had parking lot striping done before.
Learn why you should have striping done on your parking lot. From cost benefits to safety, there are many benefits to having parking lot striping completed in your business's parking area.
You make your parking lot look newer
One benefit of having parking lot striping done is this: the striping effect makes the parking area look newer and freshly done, even though just painting has been completed. If you have a parking lot in good repair but it just needs a little face lift, having parking lot striping done can make a huge difference.
You make your parking lot easier to navigate
Having more defined parking lot striping in your lot makes it easier for customers and employees to know where to park and know what directions to drive in. Your paving contractors will examine your parking area to determine the best flow of traffic for your needs, and will come up with a striping design that is custom to your needs.
You make your parking lot safer
While parking lot accidents are something of a concern, they should not be a normal worry for you as a business owner. To make your parking lot safer, you can add parking lot striping, which will give your parking area a much more defined appeal and tell customers exactly where they should park so they don't create an obstacle for other drivers. Your paving contractors can paint cautionary signage, arrows for direction, parking stripes, and handicapped space imagery to complete the look of your parking lot.
Parking lot striping varies in cost, depending on the size of your business's lot and how much additional work you want to get done in addition to striping. Your paving contractor will give you an estimate for work to be done, and will schedule their striping day outside of business hours, if applicable, to make as little impact on your day-to-day business as possible. Arrange for off-street parking for employees and customers if parking lot striping will occur during business hours.
