Asphalt Striping

Asphalt striping refers to the process of painting lines, symbols, and other markings on an asphalt surface, such as a parking lot or roadway. Here are some steps to follow when striping asphalt:

  • Prepare the surface: Before you begin striping, make sure the asphalt surface is clean and dry. Sweep or blow away any debris, and if necessary, pressure wash the surface to remove any dirt or stains.


  • Plan the layout: Determine the layout of the striping, including the placement of parking stalls, handicap spaces, arrows, and other markings. Use chalk or temporary spray paint to mark the positions of the lines and symbols.


  • Apply the paint: Apply the paint to the asphalt surface using a striping machine. This machine is specifically designed for applying paint to asphalt surfaces and ensures that the lines are straight and uniform in width. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the machine and the paint.


  • Allow the paint to dry: Depending on the type of paint used and the weather conditions, the paint may take several hours to dry completely. During this time, make sure that no one drives or walks on the freshly painted surface.


  • Add finishing touches: Once the paint is dry, add any finishing touches, such as stenciling numbers or symbols, or adding reflective tape to the lines or symbols for improved visibility at night.

Proper Striping is Essential

Overall, proper asphalt striping is important for ensuring the safety and functionality of a parking lot or roadway. It is recommended to have striping done by a professional contractor with experience in asphalt striping to ensure the best results.
