What Are the Signs You Need Parking Lot Striping?
Your parking lot is the first thing your customers notice when they visit your place of business. We can all agree that first impressions are important, and a well-maintained parking lot lets your customers know that you consider every detail. Parking lot maintenance isn’t just a necessary task; it’s a reflection of the way you do business. Keeping your striping and other markings in top form help boost favorable opinion of your place of business.
How do you know when you need parking lot striping?
Take a look at the overall appearance of your parking lot markings. Have they been worn down by vehicles, harsh weather, or excess salting? Are they faded and dull, making it difficult to see divisions between stalls or impairing lot navigation? Ideally, striping should be maintained every 18-24 months or when the pavement marking is visibly reduced to around 75% of the original appearance. This regular care ensures that markings are clear, making your parking lot easy to navigate for drivers and pedestrians alike.
Parking Lot Redesign for Compliance
There are several reasons why your parking lot may need a redesign and new striping. One may be that your existing parking lot striping is not up to ADA code. With more rigorous regulations in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), non-compliance in terms of available spaces, sizing, and appropriate coloring is not only a liability issue, but it’s against the law. At Rose Paving, we are highly knowledgeable when it comes to pavement marking and compliance.
Our staff can determine whether your parking lot complies with regulations, and we can work with you to redesign if necessary. For more information on parking lot compliance, you can take a look at our post and download our white paper.
Redesign Your Lot for Efficiency
Another reason you may be considering parking lot striping is to enhance the layout of your space and maximize efficiency. Making sure you have as many spaces as possible improves the cost-effectiveness of your lot and invites more customers to your location. When your parking lot works efficiently, with clear directional arrows for the flow of traffic and attractive spaces, you boost customer opinion and create a safer lot.
Improving safety for pedestrians is part of creating a more efficient parking lot. The addition of clearly marked crosswalks, loading zones, stop bars and pick up areas reduces the number of accidents occurring and demonstrates your dedication to customer safety. These markings indicate to your customers the right way to navigate your lot and can save you money by lowering the number of collisions on your property.
