Although asphalt striping might not look all that important, it needs to be of high consideration for several reasons. First of all, if you’re looking to improve your parking lot’s visibility and functionality, striping will help you. Secondly, a well-paved parking lot is the very first thing many customers see, so ensure it gets new asphalt striping every three years. A well-paved restricted parking lot with interesting lines is an easy way to deliver a quick first impression to your customers.
The right asphalt striping will also improve the safety of your parking lot. After all, parking lots are designed to be multi functional. However, you wouldn’t want your asphalt to fall apart on you as you load up your tools or grocery bags. If you use standard paint for your pavement, you can significantly improve its lifespan. A professional epoxy company will provide a quote on the best type of paint to use based upon your specific needs and budget.
Another benefit of the right asphalt striping is its safety. Striping around your parking lots will improve visibility, and more importantly, reduce your risk of an accident or crash. When you have well-paved roads, you are far less likely to have vehicles backing up onto you, especially if there are fire lanes. In fact, statistics show that the majority of accidents happen when someone is backing up from behind in the fire lane! Severe auto accidents can be prevented by properly maintaining your street space.
By increasing the safety and the usability of your space, asphalt striping can add several thousand dollars to your annual curb appeal and utility bills. The majority of owners only consider striping when their asphalt is tired or worn out. If you do not want to spend thousands of dollars on asphalt repairs, then you may want to consider restricting to spruce up your parking lots.
A major benefit of asphalt striping is that it can protect your asphalt parking spaces better than paint. When you apply the paint, you must wait until the paint has dried completely to see full results. This means waiting over a weekend to apply the paint or having it dry overnight. This also means that you must repaint each area repeatedly, which can increase the cost of asphalt striping over time.
Asphalt is one of the easiest to maintain for asphalt striping and stripping. Asphalt maintains its quality and appearance for years with very little upkeep. Unlike other forms of paint, asphalt is resistant to fire codes and other asphalt maintenance practices. It also is highly resistant to alkali and most oil-based paints. You will not need to avoid washing the area after it rains because it will wash off easily. Asphalt is also very durable, so it can stand up to the heaviest traffic coming through an intersection.
There are several other reasons why asphalt is often considered to be the best way to create curb appeal. Asphalt is nonslip, meaning there is no need to use any other types of pavement for parking lots. Since it is so easy to clean, there is no risk of damaging or scratching the asphalt either during or after the painting process. Asphalt is also durable and inexpensive to purchase, which means that it is cost effective in the long run. Paint will often times have to be replaced every few years because they are not as durable as asphalt.
When you choose asphalt pavement markings, you will notice that they come in a variety of different colors and designs. The most common colors are black, red and white, but you can find colored stripes of other colors as well. These different colors make it easy for you to match your new asphalt to the rest of the design that you have in place for your business. Since asphalt stripes can be thin or wide, you may want to buy extra stripes to ensure that your pavement looks as good as possible.
