Professional Pavement Striping - IC Striping

The winter season may have wreaked havoc on your establishment’s parking lots and open spaces, leaving you with disorderly surroundings, cracked pavements and faded paint. This unkempt look is bad for your business because the amount of care you put in your surroundings is a reflection of the care you put in your own product or service. Give customers the right impression by starting on a new striping project this spring!

Inspecting Your Premises

The first thing you should do is perform a thorough inspection of the following areas around your establishment:

  • parking lots
  • PWD areas or ramps
  • pavements
  • parking lot signage

If there is a significant amount of wear and tear in any of these key areas, don’t hesitate to contact a professional striping company such as IC Striping. A professional team will work on your premises to create an inviting location for future customers, clients or guests.

Here are some of the telltale signs that your establishment’s surroundings have dealt some damage during the winter months, and may need immediate action:

  • cracked pavements
  • erased parking lot striping
  • faded PWD signs
  • faded parking lot signs
  • faded paint on speed bumps
  • slippery surfaces going unnoticed

Your customers and passers-by have the right to file a lawsuit against your establishment if accidents persist because of parking lot negligence. Caring for your establishment’s surroundings is one of your most important responsibilities as a business owner because you hold the primary liability when accidents happen in your premises.

Save yourself the time and money needed to deal with unwanted complaints and lawsuits by doing preventive maintenance in your area. Make sure to exhaust all possibilities for foreseeable accidents in your area to make your location reasonably safe.

Here are some of the most common parking lot accidents that you can avoid by re-striping or repainting the entire area:

  • vehicular collisions
  • dents and scratches
  • tire slips
  • small crashes
  • irregular parking
  • perimeter damage

It is possible to reduce the likelihood of parking lot accidents by always checking for new cracks in the pavement, potholes on the ground, and faded signage and paint. One sure way of catching all these changes is to perform constant inspections around the parking lot area. Make sure to check often because some types of wear and tear appear only after more time.
