If you are in charge of caring for and maintaining the parking lot that is adjacent to your building, you know it can be a lot of work. You want your parking lot to be a safe place for anyone the visits your building. Part of keeping your parking lot a safe place for visitors is to ensure the parking lot lines and striping are clearly visible to all drivers and pedestrians alike. Andersen Asphalt & Striping is here to talk about how often the striping in your parking lot need to be repainted, so these lines are easily seen.
Signs Your Parking Lot Striping Needs to be Re-Painted
There are usually some signs that will be present when it is time to have the lines in your parking lot repainted. Here is what you should be looking for.
– Faded or Receding Lines: One of the biggest and most obvious signs that you need to have the striping repainted on your parking lot is fading. As the lines age, they will start to fade away. If you can see the asphalt start peeking through the lines that are currently there, it is time to start thinking about having them repainted.
– Bad Driving: If you have noticed that the drivers in your parking lot aren’t driving well and are swerving throughout the lot, it may be due to the fact that the striping isn’t clearly visible to them. They may also be swerving around and driving erratically when they are trying to avoid potholes and other damage to the asphalt surface that should be addressed.
– Age of Parking Lot Striping: If you don’t remember the last time you had the striping repainted on your parking lot’s surface, it may be time to start thinking about it again. These lines should be painted every 5-10 years depending on where you live and how they are holding up.
– Haphazard Parking: When drivers can’t see the parking lines, they start to make up their own. If the parking is looking less than organized in your parking lot, it could be due to the fact that drivers can’t clearly see the lines they are supposed to park in.
