Existing Parking Lots and Parking Garages
Parking lot lines and stenciled signals begin to fade within a year of application. Exposure to harsh weather wears away even commercial-grade paints. Most parking lots need a face-lift every two years to keep them looking their professional best. Parking garages should be refreshed just as often, as traffic, dirt and moisture fade the paint on concrete.

Thermoplastic pavement marking paint is a type of road marking material applied as a hot liquid and then solidifies upon cooling to create a durable, long-lasting marking. The benefits of using thermoplastic pavement marking paint include its durability, as it can withstand heavy traffic and weathering, and its reflective properties, which can improve visibility at night and in low-light conditions. Thermoplastic pavement marking paint can be applied quickly and easily with specialized equipment. It can be pre-formed into unique shapes and symbols, making it versatile for various road marking needs.

It’s important to use high-quality thermoplastic paint and equipment, and to make sure the surface is clean and dry before starting. Additionally, using high-quality stencils and templates can help ensure straight lines. Our team uses the latest techniques and ensures a great outcome.
