Important of Parking Lot Striping, Markers, & Traffic Signs

Important of Parking Lot Striping, Markers, & Traffic Signs, parking lot striping ctSuppose there are two parking lots. One lot has remnants of the old configuration showing through, leaving it up to each driver to decide whether to park at an angle or head-in, while the second lot has freshly painted stripes that clearly define each parking space. One lot has no arrows to indicate one-way traffic within the lot, while the other is clearly marked to show the flow pattern. One lot has no warnings at the exit to show that all traffic must turn left, but the other lot has visible markings at every exit. One lot has no crosswalks marked, while the other has clearly identifiable crosswalks.

If you could choose to park in either lot, which one would you prefer? In other words, if you are choosing between two retailers with identical prices and selection, two employers offering identical salaries and benefits, two apartment complexes with comparable units and amenities or two doctors or other professionals with the same expertise, how much would the condition of their parking lots influence your decision?

It is a competitive economy, whether you are offering healthcare, housing, groceries or any other goods or services. Competition exists for customers, but the competition is also there for the best employees. Therefore, you do not want to give anyone — potential employee or customer — any reason to choose your competitor.

Fresh parking lot striping and pavement markings can do a great deal to make others look at your business in a favorable light. Your lot will be more appealing, and since drivers will be less confused and dealing with fewer distractions, it will also be safer.

If a parking lot is one of your responsibilities, you may have it deiced or plowed during the winter. You might have it pressure washed occasionally as well. All of these things can make your lot safer and more attractive, but they can take a heavy toll on your pavement markings. In addition, traffic driving across the markings can wear them down, so the more vehicles your lot must accommodate, the sooner you will need to repaint. On average, parking lots need to be marked and striped every one to three years.

My home in Orange has a very long, uphill and curving driveway that had many alligator cracks and other problems over 18 years of use. Frank’s asphalt heating and curing process did an excellent job to refinish the driveway and get it looking nearly like new.

It was not all roses, however, since some of the work was done in the late Fall and the seal coating over certain areas could not be done over the Winter. In the early Spring, the driveway looked very patchy. However, Frank and his team came back in two days and not only completed the promised work but went beyond our agreement to assure my satisfaction. I met Frank 3 times in this process and I can say without reservation that he is an honest man who stands behind his work.
