Parking Lot Striping FAQs
What’s parking lot striping process?
Before any paint gets applied, parking lot experts will consult with the client about traffic flow, parking spaces, and budget to design the perfect pavement markings. Professional asphalt contractors like to start with a clean, smooth asphalt surface, so they recommend striping after a sealcoat or asphalt overlay. To paint the stripes, they use specialized paint that is both reflective and mixed with sand for traction.
When should you paint pavement markings?
Pavement markings can be applied as part of a professional asphalt parking lot installation or after an asphalt overlay or sealcoating. Professionals recommend you restripe your parking lot every year or every other year, depending on the weather conditions and amount of traffic.
Will my business be interrupted during painting?
Most asphalt applications like an overlay or a sealcoat need up to 24 hours to cure properly, but pavement markings take much less. Most traffic paints take only an hour or less to fully dry. The experienced paving contractors at SouthEast Pavement work hard to get our clients back to work quickly.
