Striped parking lots are a valuable asset to any property. Maintaining and/or replacing at the correct time and in the correct manner can help to ensure a worthwhile investment.


The first step in planning your project is to assess the condition of your current stripes, handicap markings, arrows, and the like. Do a brief visual inspection of your striped surfaces. Look for faded or mis-marked areas. This can help to evaluate both the urgency and extent of the project. Compare your findings with the chart below, which displays and ranks various conditions of your striping. 5 is a perfectly striped area and 1 corresponds to striping that is in the worst of conditions.


After doing a simple overview, the next step is to note the location of any damages. Approximate both the number of parking stalls, arrows, and other markings that are in subpar condition and the percentage of the surface that is damaged. It may also be helpful to note the condition of the asphalt pavement itself. Often times, if the striping of a lot is substandard, it may be wise to consider seal-coating and crack-fill.
