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 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.

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.

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.
