Parking lot striping is necessary in order to follow ADA regulations.  However, there are many benefits and advantages that come with properly striping your parking lot.  A freshly paved parking lot in particular should have bright and clear striping in order to create a beautiful curb appeal.  If you’re wondering about the advantages that come with a newly striped parking lot, read on.

What makes a well-striped parking lot?

 

There are compliances you must follow in order to meet ADA standards.  These include handicap parking spaces, curbs, loading zones, special markings, crosswalks, and more.  It depends on your property, but each marking can make your parking lot look more professional and clearly labeled.  Striping frequently can also ensure that your markings stay clear.  When lines get muddy and faded, your customers and employees may become frustrated, because the parking lot will be too confusing.  Aptly sized parking spaces and special markings are the best indicators that a parking lot is well-striped.

 

How can it increase curb appeal?

 

You should always consider the condition of your parking lot when you want to increase your curb appeal.  Clearly labeled pavement can draw in customers, believe it or not!  This is especially true if your parking lot looks cleaner than your competitor’s.  A well-maintained parking lot makes customers happy and content.  This is especially true when you adjust your parking spaces to be a bit bigger–no one wants to squeeze into a tight spot, risking a ding in their car door!  Overall, though it might not seem like it would make a large difference, great parking lot condition is a big factor in the success of your business.  Make sure you’re also conducting regular professional maintenance, such as sealcoating.  And enact your own maintenance, like sweeping away debris and preventing puddles.
