What is parking lot line striping?
Parking lot line striping (also called road surface marking) is used to do two things: designate parking spaces and indicate traffic regulation. S&G Asphalt Service provides parking lot striping and restriping services in accordance with the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design (the current ADA regulations).
Regular parking spaces are marked by “half H” or three-lined rectangles using white latex traffic striping paint. Accessibility parking spaces reserved for persons with disabled parking permits are marked with the white and blue international symbol of accessibility inside of parking space lines.
Our process for line striping parking lots:
- Survey: We survey your parking lot to determine exactly how many spaces to mark
- Clean: Using blowers and pressure washers, we clean all dirt and debris from the entire asphalt surface.
- Fill: We clean out any cracks, make sure they are completely dry, then fill them with crack sealant (link to crack seal page).
- Seal: Sealcoating a parking lot protects it from the elements and gives it a clean mat black finish. This finish provides a strong color contrast that shows brilliant parking lot lines.
- Apply: We now paint the parking spaces and traffic striping on the parking lot surface using a state-of-the-art, high-pressure, airless spraying machines. Our high-quality latex traffic striping paint can withstand traffic soon after application.
The benefits of line striping parking lots:
- Safety: Clean, bold lines and symbols indicate when to stop, traffic flow direction, and where to park. Poorly visible parking spaces and traffic symbols can lead to confusion and accidents.
- Legality: Compliance with federal ADA regulation, and with state and local ordinances is not optional.
- Maintenance: Parking lot lines fade in the extremely hot and sunny Texas climate. Regular maintenance ensures continuous safety.
- Appearance: The parking lot is the first thing customers and guests see when they arrive at your building. A clearly-striped lot gives a positive, professional first impression.
