3 Reasons to Keep Your Chandler Parking Lot Striping Looking Like New
When you think about maintaining your parking lot, you might think about preventing pot holes and patching up cracks and other minor problems. While these things are important, you also need to think about the aesthetics of your lot, including the parking lot striping.
Here are a few reasons why you’ll want to work closely with your paving company to keep the stripes on your Chandler lot looking like new:
Every aspect of your property reflects on your business, including the parking lot. If the pavement is crumbling and the lines are spotty or non-existent, your clients may think that you take an equally sloppy or apathetic approach to creating your products or providing your services.
By taking care of even the smallest details, like the lines in your parking lot, you let clients know that the highest level of service is important to you. Make sure the lines always look fresh and crisp and your parking lot is always smooth and structurally sound.
Have you ever tried to park in a lot with no stripes? If other cars are already parked, you probably used them as a guide to know where to park. If there are no cars there or other markers, such as curb stones, you likely have no idea where to park. Enough people start haphazardly guessing where to park and it will be a recipe for disaster.
Fresh parking lot striping will help clients know exactly where to park and will provide structure that can reduce the risk of accidents.
The lack of lines doesn’t just increase the risk of car accidents — it also increases the risk of accidents involving pedestrians. When you invest in new parking lot striping, make sure you include crosswalks for pedestrians. You can also include small lanes for bikes.
The more areas you mark off, the more direction you will provide both motorists and pedestrians, helping to keep everyone safer.
How Often to Restripe
Now that you understand why you should restripe, how do you know when restriping is needed? How faded is too faded? As a general rule of thumb, you’ll need to call your paving company every 18 to 24 months for striping service. You may have to get the service sooner if your lot experiences a lot of wear and tear from excessive traffic or severe weather.
In Chandler, you are likely to have to restripe your lot more frequently during the summer months when the extreme heat can degrade the paint faster and during the monsoon season when the heavy rains wash away the paint faster.
