Here at R & R Paving and Grading, we specialize in asphalt paving, and we offer a variety of additional services to help you keep your asphalt in great shape. One of those services is asphalt striping, and that is what we will be focusing on in this article. We’ll provide a brief overview of what exactly asphalt striping is and why it’s important.
What is Asphalt Striping?
The term “asphalt striping” refers to the process of painting the necessary road markings to tell drivers where to go—it gets its name from the process of painting the stripes that divide road lanes. Other common road markings that are part of asphalt striping include the lines that separate parking spaces, arrows directing the flow of traffic, the thick stripes of pedestrian crossings, handicapped parking markings, fire lane indicators, and more.
Why is Asphalt Striping Important?
The road markings that are applied in asphalt striping services are designed to tell drivers where to go, where not to go, and how to behave on the road. If things like lane dividing stripes become faded and unclear, drivers will have a harder time making good decisions, and the roads will become less safe.
Because good asphalt striping is so important for driver and pedestrian safety, it’s important to keep the markings on your driveway, parking lot, or other paved area bright and clear so that everyone can read them easily. If your asphalt striping could use a refresh, we encourage you to give us a call to get our experts on the job as soon as possible.
