Parking Lot Striping Baltimore

When it comes to maintenance and repairs, many business owners and facility managers focus their attention on their buildings, and for good reason. However, this does not mean you should completely ignore your parking lot. It may look tough on the outside, but without the right amount of care, your once beautiful parking lot could begin to deteriorate before your eyes. And maintenance doesn’t just mean crack sealing, patching, and pothole repair. Proper maintenance also includes aesthetic repairs, like striping, signage, and wheel stops. These seemingly simple maintenance tasks play a bigger role than you probably realize. (more…)

Parking Lot Striping can benefit your Baltimore Business

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Parking lot striping can help you make a better first impression.

Our entire lives, we are told “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Easier said than done. As human beings, we are a very visual people. According to several psychology studies, as much as 55% of a stranger’s opinion of your Baltimore business – a potential customer’s opinion – is determined by physical appearance. And what is the first thing a customer sees? Your building!

Like the cover of a book, the exterior of your building and your parking lot are what your customers base their first opinions on.  And according to Business Insider, it takes just 0.1 seconds for an individual to form a lasting impression of your business. So what kind of first impression is your building giving your customers? Remember, it is far more difficult to change someone’s first impression than it is to make a good first impression.

Parking Lot Striping can benefit your Baltimore Business

New paint, signs and wheel stops give your parking lot a “WOW” factor, instantly improving curb appeal. Unfortunately, this wow factor doesn’t last forever. Your parking lot striping wears away over time, which is why re-striping is the most common and routine type of asphalt maintenance. This deterioration is sped up by such factors as severe weather, the amount of traffic coming in and out of the lot, and the thickness of the paint.

Because of all this, it is recommended that you re-stripe your parking lot every 12-18 months.

New ADA Standards Make Pavement Contractors Indispensable

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Last week, we told you about Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III – the new ADA standards that guarantee persons with disabilities are provided accommodations and access equal to, or similar to, the general public into commercial facilities and areas of public accommodation. And last week, we told you how these new standards would affect business owners across the nation. Well, what about pavement contractors?

All signs point to the ADA standards as a bonus for the pavement maintenance industry. When business owners are faced with the challenge of complying with these new standards (a full list can be found at http://www.ada.gov/), whom do you think they will call?

Pavement Contractors!

These new ADA standards create a network of accessibility that leads from one requirement to the next with each stage having specific requirements that must be met. And like any government regulation, the new ADA Standards are complex and can, at times, be difficult to decipher. But this just means that pavement contractors will become increasingly indispensable to business owners everywhere as the nation strives to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III.

The asphalt experts here have managed hundreds of pavement projects and have the experience you need.

How ADA Updates Can Make You Indispensible To Your Customer

Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Next Thursday, March 15, 2012, compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act, Title III becomes mandatory. Title III guarantees persons with disabilities are provided accommodations and access equal to, or similar to, the general public into commercial facilities and areas of public accommodation.

The 2010 updates are enforceable under civil rights law. This means that a person is able to file lawsuit if he/she has “reasonable grounds” for believing that discrimination is about to occur, rather than filing a grievance after the fact. A civil law suit can be filed with penalties of up to $100,000 imposed per offense.

To help facilitate the transition process, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is allowing a one-year “grace period” for businesses to prepare for the changes.

2010 ADA Guidelines

  1. Facilities that provide goods or services directly to the public: These facilities will be required to remove architectural barriers in existing buildings, and must make sure that newly built or altered facilities are constructed to be accessible. 
  2. Facilities that do not provide goods/services directly to the public: These facilities are only subject to new construction and alteration requirements.
  3. Small businesses with very limited parking (four or fewer spaces): These businesses must have one accessible parking space; though no new signage is required.
  4. Medium-Large Businesses: Non-van accessible parking stalls need to be 8’ wide with a 60″ aisle. For van-accessible parking, the van parking stall should be 11’, with a 60″ access isle. Plus, disabled parking signs are required on all accessible parking spaces, and should be easily visible, a minimum of 60″ off the ground.

However, specific ADA regulations will vary depending on location.

The Importance of Parking Lot Striping and Re-Striping

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Like the cover of a book, the exterior of your building and your parking lot are what your customers base their first opinions on. I know, I know…don’t judge a book by its cover. Well, guess what? People still do. That is just the way it is. And you only get to make one first impression, so it is important to make it a good one. After all, who wants to lose business because their parking lot is a mess?

New paint, signs and wheel stops give your parking lot a “WOW” factor. Unfortunately, this wow factor doesn’t last forever.

Your parking lot striping wears away over time, which is why re-striping is the most common and routine type of asphalt maintenance. As soon as the paint is applied to your parking surface, it begins to deteriorate. This deterioration is sped up by such factors as severe weather, the amount of traffic coming in and out of the lot, and the thickness of the paint.

So how often should you re-stripe your parking lot?

Because of the deteriorating paint, the relatively low cost of re-striping, and the instant curb appeal it provides, it is recommended that you re-stripe your parking lot every 12-18 months. And as long as the temperature is above freezing, striping can be performed year-round.

So if your parking lot is in desperate need of a little TLC, contact an experienced asphalt company today – a company like PTG Enterprises. The asphalt experts here have managed hundreds of these projects and have the experience you need. So contact PTG Enterprises aka My Pavement Guy today by calling 410-636-8777 or click here today!
