Three Signs That It’s Time To Re-Stripe Your Parking Lot

Parking Lot

Be on the lookout for these indicators that it’s time to re-stripe a parking lot.

Even with diligent care, there comes a time when every parking lot needs to be restriped. Many business owners put off restriping for far too long because it is an annoying process, but having your parking lot in good condition is critical. It’s easy to forget that your parking lot is one of the first places your customers see and it helps inform their opinion of your entire business. With that in mind, there are a few signs that it’s time to get your lot restriped. 

Parking Is Becoming WIld 

One of the most obvious signs that it’s time to upgrade your stripes is if when you look out at a full lot, the cars are looking haphazard. Because it is hard to see the lines, you may have people double parked, parked at odd angles, or people are hesitant to park at all. Not only does this make your customers feel less secure about leaving their cars parked, but it makes entering and exiting your lot more dangerous as well. 

The Effects Of Winter

After a long cold period of quick freezes and thaws combined with the corrosive effects of road salt, your parking lot might be in need of serious care. Winters effects can have a wildly negative impact on your lots asphalt as well as the paint. If you live in areas with particularly hard winters, you may need to consider upgrading the entire parking area and not just the lines. 

Age Of Your Stripes 

Can you even remember the last time you stripped your lot? Between the sun, weather, and simple usage, the time has a serious effect on your parking lot and your stripes will be the first to show the signs of their age. If you can’t remember when you last stripped your lot, it’s a good sign that you’re overdue.
