An Expert’s Opinion
Would you try to build a house if you never had built one before? Probably not. Would you try to create a bicycle without knowing how it is done? Again, probably not. Why is it, then, that people who have never striped a parking lot before believe that they can lay out a parking lot in a good manner? When you are thinking about parking lot striping, especially for a new lot or for one that you are trying to revamp, you should call on an expert to get the right layout for your lot.
Parking lot striping, while it is not an art, is a very technical thing. You have to have the right amount of space for the car to fit into the slot, and the right amount of space between the slots so that people can get out of their vehicle without having to worry about their car door hitting another person’s vehicle. If you do not have any training in parking lot striping, you will definitely want to hire a professional. They will be able to show you how the lot should be laid out professionally in order to help your customers or employees have a place to park that is easy to get in and out of.
