Removing Old Stripes
From time to time, a customer will want you to remove some old parking lot striping lines. Usually, their request involves changing the width of the parking stalls, especially when implementing ADA requirements or changing from straight-in stalls to angled stalls.
The quickest and easiest way to conceal old stripes is to use “blackout” (asphalt) paint or “block-out” (concrete) paint. Of course, that only delays the eventual reappearance of the offensive stripes. There are three methods used to permanently remove old stripes.
1. Pressure Washing
2. Shot Blasting
3. Sand Blasting
As with most services, each type used in removing stripes has advantages and disadvantages. Call Trueline Striping today when you need to get answers in regards to which method is best for you and your parking lot striping needs.
