If you’re the owner of a commercial parking lot or a lot manager, you understand the value of having clearly painted, straight parking lines.

Before using any parking stencil, it’s always important to start with an absolutely clean asphalt surface. Dirt and debris can hinder paint from adhering and can affect the quality of painted parking lot signs. The easiest way to clean asphalt prior to using parking lot stencils is to use a gas powered blower. Instead of sweeping by hand, which can be time consuming and tiring, a gas blower can quickly clean a parking lot of leaves, puddles, and dirt. Because it can also be used for general cleanup, as well as before the use of pavement stencils, it is a smart investment for anyone who owns or manages a parking lot.
Once a parking lot is cleaned and before any parking lot stencil is applied, it’s necessary to inspect for cracks in the asphalt. Any cracks found will need to be cleaned and filled using a professional grade crack filler. Crack filling is definitely not a step to skip in the process of painting parking lot signs. If cracks aren’t sealed properly, parking lot asphalt can decay very rapidly resulting in costly repair. You should also sealcoat the surface of the parking lot after cracks are filled to protect it from the elements and to give the asphalt surface a clean black finish that will allow parking lot signs to appear as clear as they should.
