Don't DIY Parking Lot Striping

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

It's a tempting idea to do parking lot striping yourself. After all, how hard can it be to paint lines on a parking lot? Unfortunately, the answer is that it's more challenging than you think. That's why hiring a professional to handle the chore is a logical business decision.

The Striping Has To Be Correct

Any mistakes that happen when striping a parking lot can be costly. Experienced teams paint parking lots professionally, which ensures a higher degree of safety. These lines are crucial to keep a parking lot functioning effectively. Any incorrect striping may result in lost revenues or accidents.

When comparing the cost of professional parking lot striping to an unprofessional job's potential fines and penalties, it is well worth the investment.

Professional Striping Services Keep Your Lot Compliant

Keeping compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is essential for parking lot operators. The ADA releases detailed guidelines about crosswalk labeling and placing handicap symbols throughout the parking lot. Failure to do this critical step right can result in severe fines and also hurts your business reputation. A parking lot striping company will understand these regulations intimately and help your business comply with perfect striping.

Striping Makes Parking Lots Safe for All

Striping isn't a decoration. It serves an essential purpose in providing guests, residents, employees, and customers with clearly marked parking spots. Handicap symbols, parking spot lines, and directional arrows maximize the lot's safety and traffic flow. Hiring pros for your parking lot striping ensures all safety measures get met to provide an efficient, easy to navigate, and safe parking lot for everyone.

Save Time and Focus On What Matters

Saving money on parking lot striping by doing it yourself doesn't add much to your bottom line. You're better off focusing on core business activities that keep business moving forward.

The chances are very high that there are plenty of other projects you're more prepared to complete. By doing so, you're supporting business efficiency. You don't have to move employees around or ask them to complete jobs they aren't qualified or equipped to do. As you might imagine, this also alleviates any risk associated with having an employee complete job tasks outside of their standard job description.

Further, professional parking lot maintenance services help ensure your lot meets all local, state, and federal legal requirements.
