Recently, I have noticed that more and more people are turning to the Internet to find answers to every day questions. One of the questions I am seeing asked alot is :
“How much does it cost to get parking lot striping done?
This is a honest question that doesn’t have a easy answer, so I thought I would take a moment to explain how much striping should cost. Please keep in mind that this blog is purely based on our 18 years in the businesses and by no means should qualify as anything other than opinion backed up by experience. So, here we go.
What all is Considered Striping?
First off, parking lot striping is like most trades, a multiple set of services that are branched under the title of “striping”. However, in its simplest form, parking lot striping is the painting of lines.
Other services commonly grouped under parking lot striping would include painting curbs, painting handicap stalls, painting stencils, sign work such as handicaps, stops etc, as well as wheel stops installed.
Many other striping professionals such as Trueline have branched into other fields in attempts to increase and diversify their work load. These other services might include things such as truncated domes, warehouse striping (a cousin to parking lot striping done on concrete surfaces such as a warehouse floor), shot blasting, sandblasting, bollard installation and so on.
