Price(less) Quotes from Parking Lot Striping Contractors

Sealmaster Pavement Products and Equipment said, "For best results, it’s important to use a quality 100% acrylic water-based traffic paint for bright, durable markings. With all the cost and time involved with a parking lot striping project, you don’t want to skimp on the quality of the paint. Quality parking lot striping provides optimum traffic flow and will enhance your property’s curb appeal".

Trueline Striping, Inc. said, "In California our minimum charge is about $300.00 but that’s mainly because of the high cost of labor and heavy traffic we have to sit in just to get to those jobs. Also consider we are a 18 year old company that has overhead a small start up wont have. That being said we also provide a level of service a small start up can not provide. Every area has its own unique economy and situations. Plus your business may have a unique situation to consider as well. Figure out what your area will bear by doing research and talking to your accounts".

NVM Paving & Concrete, Inc. said, "Cost shouldn’t be the only deciding factor on which company you choose. But we would be lying if we said you shouldn’t consider it at all. We are all professionals with a business to run, so of course, the bottom line is important. Ask any company you speak to for a written estimate for the work they will perform. Keep in mind that if your parking lot is on the smaller side, you may be subject to a minimum charge. This minimum charge is to cover the cost of bringing out all of the crew and equipment. Those parking lots that have 30 to 50 spaces or less are considered small. Expect the minimum to be anywhere from $300 to $500 for a basic stripe repaint job. A new stripe paint job minimum will be anywhere from $500 to $700".

Stripe A Lot of America II Corp said, "Clearly visible parking lot striping can also help monitor the proper parking of various vehicles, ensuring that customers park in appropriate spaces and maximize your lot’s full parking capacity. Faded striping or damaged marking can reduce the efficiency and safety of your property".
