The Importance of Parking Lot Striping


Ever wonder why parking lots have striping on them? Are they really that important to have on a parking lot? Actually they are important for multiple reasons! Parking lot striping creates a good first impression. When someone pulls into your parking lot, striping adds a level of crispness and quality at first impression. Your parking lot appearance creates a perception to the customer of the quality and safety of your business as well.

Another reason why parking lot striping importance is because ADA (American Disabilities Act) requires that every commercial building has handicapped parking strips. By creating these spaces for handicap individuals, you are ensuring easy access to all customers and helps you avoid fines and penalities as a commercial property owner. Quality striping also helps safely guide both pedestrians and drivers because they indicate parking spaces, crosswalks, fire lanes, and even traffic flow.

Lastly, parking lot striping helps maximize parking spots. Drivers cannot visualize where and how to park. By having poor asphalt paving striping, it can lead to client loss and inefficient use of space. Think of it this way... if a customer can't find a parking spot due to people being parked in a directions and widths, do you think they will make the effort to park somewhere else and walk to your store, or will they just go to another store? Most likely, they are going to just go somewhere else.
