In the day-to-day hustle of running your business, the state of your parking lot might be something you rarely consider. If left neglected, a parking lot can become an unsightly mess that leaves a bad impression on visitors. Parking lot striping is just one of the expert-level services we offer at Lone Star Paving, and we’re happy to tell you just how it can benefit you.
Proper parking lot striping helps safely guide both drivers and pedestrians. A clearly striped crosswalk will be hard to miss, thereby minimizing the chance of collisions. Pavement markings (usually arrows) are also essential in directing the flow of one-way traffic throughout your parking lot. Your goal should be to create clearly defined visual messaging for people both in and out of cars.
Clearly designated areas will go a long way in increasing the capacity of your parking lot. Poor striping (or no striping at all) often leads to drivers haphazardly parking wherever they can, usually in a spatially inefficient manner. Carefully planned parking lot striping will make sure that you’re making the most of every square foot.
It’s more than just common sense to include parking spaces for your handicapped guests and customers – the Americans with Disabilities Act requires you by law to designate handicapped spaces. Good parking lot striping will clearly denote these spaces, making sure that you’re offering convenience for handicapped visitors and complying with legally mandated standards.
As mentioned before, your parking lot can be seen as a chance to leave a first impression on visitors. The contrast of freshly painted white and yellow lines against black asphalt is hard to miss! This curb appeal will set you apart from places with old, faded striping.
