Every year, many clients ask us the same two questions. How often should we paint our parking lot lines? Do we have to paint them every year?
We hear it so much that we know they are going to say it before they do..
So whats the answer?
Simply put, your parking space is an investment, like many of the other structures that your condo or complex is made up of. And investments only work one way. You have to keep them up, maintain them, or they quickly deteriorate and become liabilities instead of assets. Its like your car. Lets say you don't wash it for a 11 months at all, but on the start of month 12 you spend $100 washing it. Would that $100 make up for months of neglect and abuse? I think you know the answer.
Parking lots are the same. By investing smaller amounts more often, such as regular, scheduled line painting programs, you will end up having a lot that is functional, in good repair, and will last a long, long time, like your regularly serviced vehicle!
The best value for a long term line painting program involves a once a year restriping and analysis of your lines. This will make sure your lines are in good repair and your investment is safe!
