Does restriping your parking lot matter? When a striping and infrastructure company asks that question, you can be pretty sure the answer is going to be “yes.” At InfraStripe, though, we genuinely believe in having a good reason behind the work that we do and the recommendations we make. In this post, we want to tell you why fresh, clear parking lot striping is important.
Clear parking lines, fire lanes, and directional arrows is one of the simplest, most affordable, and effective ways to avoid parking lot fender-benders and pedestrian incidents. Maintaining a safe parking lot also keeps your business liability risks lower.
It’s easy to overlook this, but your parking lot is part of your curb appeal and a big part of your first impression. Before clients ever enter your facility or encounter your staff, they use your parking lot.
A well-maintained parking lot communicates professionalism, courtesy, and attention to detail before people even walk through your door. Clear directional markings and parking spaces give guests at your facility the sense that you have prepared for their arrival and are welcoming them.
Efficiency and Organization
If it’s been several years since your parking lot has been striped, there’s a high likelihood that with new car specifications and space use studies, your parking lot space can be adjusted to allow for more parking capacity.
Complying with fire code requirements and ADA regulations is important legally, ethically, and financially. Clearly marked fire lanes and handicap parking spots will help keep your business up to date and compliant.
Those are some of our top reasons for recommending keeping your parking lot striping up to date. Restriping your parking lot on an annual or biennial basis is the way to achieve optimal results.
