Sealcoating & Line Striping Go Together Like PB&J – Why you should line stripe every time you get your asphalt sealcoating. 

Sealcoating should be completed approximately every three to five years. Commercial parking lots especially those that see a lot of traffic of various weights over time should be done sooner than later. Sealcoating offers several benefits including extending the lifespan of the asphalt, protecting against moisture intrusion and UV rays, and restoring the rich, black color of the asphalt. 

When you have your parking lot professionally sealcoated, you will also want to repaint all of the lines. This is called line striping. To help you better understand why you should have your parking lot lines painted, Toste Construction is here to offer the greatest benefits. Keep reading to learn about line striping and why you should schedule it when you schedule your routine sealcoating

What is line striping? 

Parking lot line striping refers to the pavement traffic markings that are in place to organize traffic flow within a parking lot. There are several types of lines that are needed and often required, these include: 

  • Parking Stall Lines
  • Arrows
  • Crosswalks
  • ADA Compliant Spaces
  • Fire Lanes
  • No Parking Areas
  • Curbs 

Each of these lines serve their own purpose and give driver’s directions as to where they can and cannot park, drive, and access. If your parking lot is missing some lines, you might want to schedule an estimate with your local asphalt maintenance company.

Sealcoating Will Erase Your Current Lines

One of the top reasons to include line striping when you schedule your sealcoating is because the sealcoating will erase your current lines. When a parking lot is sealcoated, a layer or two is sprayed on top of the current parking lot. This will cover up any lines that are currently painted on. 

Additionally, by the time it is for sealcoating to be completed, the current lines on the pavement have started to fade. Sometimes lines become non-existent and it creates confusion within the parking lot. If your lines are no longer visible, you should schedule to have them repainted as quickly as possible. 

Blank Slate

Over time, trends, traffic, and parking lot requirements change. When a parking lot is sealcoated, this is the perfect opportunity to reorganize the traffic flow. You will have a blank slate to play with the amount of parking spaces, where you would like the aisle to be, and provide new technology if it is applicable to your company. A few trends we have noticed lately is adding trees and small green spaces along with dedicated parking for EV charging spaces.
