How You Can Tell if You Need New Line Striping
It’s essential to pay attention to the need for restriping. Faded lines or traffic lanes can make it difficult for drivers to see. Illegible text on curbs or asphalt and unclear accessible parking spaces are also indicators. Periodic pavement inspection can determine if restriping is necessary. Contact a professional paving contractor to make your parking lot safe, visually appealing, and compliant with ADA requirements.
The Line Striping Process
At Barnes Asphalt, we perform quality striping services while also making sure to communicate with our clients and minimize business interruptions.
- Assessing the condition of the pavement to determine if sealcoating or asphalt repairs are necessary.
- Creating a layout for spaces and traffic lanes based on size and traffic flow.
- Preparing the asphalt surface by cleaning and drying it. Sometimes sealcoating is performed at this stage.
- Using specialized equipment to apply reflective traffic paint or thermoplastic materials for the lines and markings.
- Allowing time for these materials to dry and cure so that they are long-lasting.
