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
