Asphalt Paving: Striping Your Parking Lot

As you may already know, asphalt paved parking lots do need maintenance from time to time. One known asphalt paving maintenance technique is to have your parking lot re-striped to add a nicer look to existing asphalt paving properties.

The repainting (striping) of an asphalt lot usually takes place every one to two years; it mostly depends on the amount of wear and tear made by people driving on the asphalt paved lots. First, the lot must be cleaned and checked to see if there are any major problems with the lot currently.

As a rule of thumb, the number of parking spaces on the lot will typically designate how many handicapped spaces are required. By using high quality paint when asphalt striping, you will ensure a greater life expectancy of the clean look of your paved lot. The lines have to be as bright as possible for people who will park in between them at a later date. The striping also serves to direct the parking lot traffic to ensure safety of drivers. You want to make it as easy as possible for drivers to see where they are supposed to go at all given times.

Also, by having very bright yellow speed bumps on your asphalt paved parking lot, you make it safer for those who will not be in cars as well. Also, the proper signs must be displayed on the parking lots as well, i.e., crosswalks, loading zone, and handicapped signs. The lines that will be put on the parking lot will first be chalked to ensure a clean straight look when the work is done.

Furthermore, a walk behind style striping machine will be used to get the best painted lines that are approximately 6 millimeters when dry. The lines can not be driven on until the paint has had adequate time to fully dry (at-least 30 minutes).

When the asphalt parking lot has been striped, any debris that is on the lot will be collected and taken away from the property.

The final stage of the asphalt striping is to put up barricades to keep other drivers from entering or exiting your asphalt parking lot. Striping is a great way to keep a parking lot looking new and professional. Costs spent in advance for asphalt striping now will definitely be lower as compared to later. Always take a proactive approach to asphalt paving maintenance. Those who choose not to take good care of their lots will pay the price in the long run. Customers always appreciate a well designed and painted parking lot. It is the first thing that customers see when visiting your property, so it should look great. A freshly striped asphalt parking lot can lead to a positive overall impression of your property.
