Parking Lot Striping in Chattanooga

Parking lot lines are something most people take for granted. We see them any time we drive and park at a store, and we (usually) respect their guidelines. They are simple in design and function, but paining professional lines on a parking lot requires the right kind of preparation, the proper measurements and machinery, and a team to execute and clean up afterward.

It’s important to follow the right process when painting parking lot lines.

Prepare the Area

This part might feel like a given, but without the right preparation, the parking lot stripes won’t last as long as they should. Making sure the paint sticks to the pavement properly and doesn’t wash or chip away easily is the number one priority when preparing the parking lot for striping. A good parking lot striping job will withstand the test of time. Weather, cars, and lots of use can make the paint deteriorate over time, and making sure the area is clean of debris and void of cracks or potholes will ensure a long-lasting job.

Plan the Lot and Measure the Spaces

It’s important to follow the guidelines of standard parking lot measurements. We’ve all had to deal with parking lots that didn’t leave enough space for vehicles to park, and it makes the lot frustrating and sometimes hazardous for customers. We’ll make sure to measure the spaces to the proper dimensions for both the parking spaces as well as the driving lanes. Using precise measurements and lines is key in parking lot striping.

Paint the Lines with the Right Machine

After your lot is prepared and measured, it’s now time to paint the lines! The best way to paint parking lot striping is with a line striping machine that will ensure tight edges, straight lines, and completely filled lines.

Keep the Paint Dry and Clean

As with all paint, it takes time to dry. The last step might seem like an afterthought, but it’s important to keep car and foot traffic off the paint until it’s completely dried to the recommended length of time by the paint’s manufacturer. Use traffic cones and caution tape to divert traffic away from the lot until it’s ready to be used.
