Parking Lot Pavement Markings
A parking lot is one of the first things noticed by customers, clients, and visitors entering a facility. The color contrast of a newly striped lot is attractive and reflects well on the owner’s care of the property.
Perhaps more importantly, a well-marked parking lot directs people safely around the parking area. Crosswalks, stop bars, loading-zone markings, and properly marked pickup areas inform pedestrians where they should walk, when to give right-of-way to traffic, what areas to avoid, etc. If customers feel safe, they’re much more likely to return to your business.
Pavement Marking Procedure

Preparation involves cleaning the lot of all debris with a power blower or broom and, where applicable, removing old stripes.
Parking Lot Striping Design Considerations
Maximize Your Space
The right layout and parking lot striping helps maximize your space and gets the most cars possible into a parking, therefore maintaining cost-effectiveness.
At Virginia Driveway, we’re all for providing the most stalls possible in a functional parking lot. Though the straight-in design (90°) always allows for the most stalls, for a variety of reasons, we prefer angled stalls (45°, 60° or 75°).
Angled stalls create easier turning angles for drivers to turn into and back out of. Angled stalls also provide a controlled, one-way traffic flow while creating an attractive herringbone design.
Create Efficient Traffic Flow
Well-marked, attractive parking signage helps customers enter, park, and exit quickly, safely, and happily.
Designated Parking Needs
Before parking lot striping, owners should consider whether a parking lot needs designated parking spaces for disabled persons, customers, employees, visitors, or other individuals.
Signed into law in July 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) affects every property owner. Regardless of company size, all businesses must now have the proper amount of handicapped-accessible parking stalls, and required van parking spaces.
To that end, many localities require a newly constructed parking lot (at commercial or large residential properties) to be striped up to ADA standards before an operating permit is issued. In addition, such lots must also have a minimum number of parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of utilized facility.
