Does my parking lot have to be re-striped annually?
Not all parking lots will need to be re-striped every year. It really depends on the amount of traffic and the wear and tear. It is recommended though for heavy-use lots to re-stripe annually. It is always a good idea too to keep all fire lanes striping very clear and visible.

Be sure whoever you choose is using a high quality pavement grade paint.
