Believe it or not, clients, customers and visitors pay special attention to a businesses’ parking lot. The bright, eye-catching color contrast of new line striping is very attractive to customers. Fresh line paint is a good indication that the property owner emphasizes maintenance, facility care and safety. Line striping is not just to map parking spots, it is also used to clearly indicate crosswalk, handicap spots, loading zones, emergency fire lanes, walkways and more. To help improve or brighten up the existing flow of traffic in your parking lot, call Exit 7 Sealcoating today. Our asphalt repair contractors can re-stripe or lay out new markings for your parking lot in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

    Importance of Line Striping

    Maximize Space: You want to be able to fit the most cars as possible into the parking lot, but still provide enough room for customers to comfortable walking between cars. Exit 7 Sealcoating will provide the right layout and parking lot striping to meet your goal.

    Improve Traffic Flow: Customers want to be able to enter, park and exit easily and safely. Easy to read and properly placed parking stalls, arrows and handicapped signs help direct customers efficiently.

    Designate Parking: There are several things to consider before parking lot striping. Ask yourself the following: how many spaces will the parking lot need for disabled persons, employees, customers, visitors, etc. It is important to have exact numbers beforehand so we can properly place all of these spots.

    ADA Guidelines: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) affects every property owner regardless of company size. All businesses must have the correct amount of handicapped parking stalls and a number of required van spaces. In addition, there is a minimum number of parking spaces required per every 1,000 square feet. Exit 7 Sealcoating will help with you these requirements if you are not familiar and ensure your parking lot is compliant.
