Parking lot maintenance is often overlooked. Nothing stays maintained by sheer will. Instead, things like potholes, parking structures, and even parking lot lines all need to be kept up to date and fresh. That means someone has to physically go out and paint those parking lot lines.

That’s where we come in. Over time, we’ve learned some tips and tricks to make the parking lot striping process easier. There are a lot of things that could go wrong if you’re not paying attention to detail.

Painting these lines can seem like an easy job, but there are actually a lot of calibrations and calculations to consider before you begin. If you don’t start the project correctly, you could start painting in the wrong place, use the wrong type of paint, or even walk at the wrong pace. Yes, how fast you walk can impact how well your painting comes out! Unfortunately, the paint that is used in parking lots is very permanent. There are no do-overs and once the paint hits the pavement it is there for good. That is why proper training on how to do this job should never be overlooked.
