The striping and markings on commercial parking lots help drivers and pedestrians safely navigate those lots. These features are also essential to keeping commercial parking lots ADA-compliant (violating federal ADA requirements can bring expensive fines).
Whenever striping and markings have faded or they are missing altogether, traffic and all sorts of hazards can follow. This can also create compliance and liability issues. All of that can be solved with clear markings and striping. In fact, a clearly marked commercial parking lot will be safer and look nice while having optimal functionality. It can also be in full compliance with all local, state, and federal laws.

Whether a lot has been newly constructed or replaced, markings will define the layout and flow of traffic. As such, many factors need to be considered to develop a thoughtful, safe design for striping and markings. Some of these factors include:
At Prime Asphalt, we are highly skilled at creating effective markings and striping for commercial lots. We work closely with property owners, builders, and others to develop the best striping plans that will keep parking lots safe, functional, compliant, and attractive.
The materials and weather will affect the drying time for striping paint. While minimal light and cold temperature can increase the time it takes for new parking lot striping to dry, generally, waterborne paint takes around 4 hours to cure. In these cases, driving can occur on newly striped lots after about an hour. The project foreman will explain what to expect and how long you should allow striping to dry, based on the specifics of your project.
The amount of traffic your parking lot receives, as well as its level of exposure to the elements, will affect how long striping lasts. Typically, striping will fade faster in parking lots that see lots of traffic, sun exposure, and/or exposure to snow and deicer salt. In these cases, it may be necessary to refresh the striping and markings in a parking lot every year.
Unlike other types of parking lot issues, striping and fading are very easy to see. So, it’s usually recommended that restriping occur whenever the existing markings are deteriorating.
