How often should a parking lot be re-striped?

Parking lot stripes, arrows and other markings provide a sense of organization and safety on your pavement property. Without proper lines and directional arrows, a parking lot will soon become an area of confusion.

While there’s no simple answer for how often a parking lot should be re-striped, a good rule of thumb is to re-stripe it no less than every second year. Of course, if your lines and arrows begin to fade before that, more frequent application may be in order. The service life of parking stripes is dependent on weather, traffic patterns and frequency of use.

According to the US Department of Justice Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, public parking lots must have at least one space specifically reserved for handicapped parking. This is an important reason to make sure your parking lot markings are clear and easily seen. If your lot is not yet in compliance with the ADA, Affordable Striping & Sealing can indicate handicap parking spaces when we come to apply or redo your stripes.

Traffic directions and space designations add value and logic to any parking area. If your lot has no stripes, or is in need of its bi-annual re-striping, Affordable Striping & Sealing is the company to call on. Freshly applied stripes, directional arrows and traffic signs will greatly improve the appearance and functionality of your parking area. We do it all, from road stenciling to curb painting to traffic sign installation.
