New Layout Striping
We just completed what we call new layout striping at a parking lot in Dallas, Texas. New layout striping is where parking lines are put down for the first time on a parking lot. They must be measured to make sure the parking stalls are 9′ apart for regular parking spaces and perpendicular to the curb.
In contrast to restriping, where a fresh coat of pavement paint is applied over existing parking lines, new layout striping requires a bit more time to measure the lines, mark them with a chalk line and then apply them with a striping machine. The lines have to be applied a little more slowly to make sure they are straight.
Parking Lot Restoration
On this particular project, the parking lot striping was part of an asphalt parking lot restoration where we came in a fixed a lot of potholes, applied sealcoating and then applied pavement markings. The sealcoating keeps water from penetrating beneath the asphalt and prevents potholes from forming. It also makes the parking lot last longer as long as it is performed on a regular basis. The sealcoat also makes the pavement darker, improving the aesthetics and also increasing the contract between the asphalt and the overlying striping paint. All in all, we turned an old asphalt parking lot with lots of potholes and loose gravel into a smooth, nice, restored parking lot with new paint.
