Parking Lot Striping
As a business owner, you know how important it is to provide a safe parking lot. After all, that’s the first thing visitors — and potential customers — see when they come to your place of business.
Parking Lot Striping for Your Parking Lot
Parking lot striping plays an essential role in your company’s curb appeal.
A well-maintained parking lot with vibrant, clearly marked striping shows that you care about the safety and well-being of your customers and employees. Here’s what you need to know about how parking lot striping in your lot can impact your business.
The Importance of Parking Lot Striping
When you’re thinking about all the things that make your business run successfully, it’s easy to overlook the parking lot… but you shouldn’t! Here are just a few reasons why parking lot striping plays such an important role.
When a customer visits your business, their experience starts when they park their car. Vibrant, clean markings direct traffic flow, easing your customer’s way and guiding them to your door. Not only does this visual guidance help them avoid confusion and frustration, it also promotes safety.
Clearly marked striping directs the flow of traffic, deterring collisions and other potential safety issues, keeping the traffic and pedestrian flow in your parking lot under control. Elements to consider include:
- loading zones
- emergency vehicle zones
- fire lanes
- parking spaces
- pickup areas
- accessible parking
- directional arrows
- entrances and exits
Another key element? Fresh parking lot striping helps your business meet legal requirements. State or local laws govern traffic markings, from visibility to color to signage. Professional parking lot striping can help you ensure you’re meeting legal and ADA requirements.

How do you know when it’s time for a parking lot striping refresh? Most importantly, unclear parking lot markings may lead to traffic issues.
Look for red flags such as:
- Poorly parked cars — for example, cars parking off-center or over the lines — which may indicate drivers can’t clearly see the lines demarcating parking spaces
- Cars parking illegally in accessible parking spots
- Parking lot striping that’s dull, faded or worn down
- Markings that are less visible in the dark, or in foggy or rainy conditions
