As a business owner, you may be wondering if curbing your parking lot is the right choice for you. Is the extra expense worthwhile, or is it just a waste of money? You may also have existing curbing in disrepair and debate whether you should get it repaired or replaced. Today, we will share with you the three benefits of curbing parking lots so that you can make an informed decision.

Three Benefits of Curbing Parking Lots

  1. “Curb Appeal”

Adding curbs adds to the overall curb appeal of your parking lot and business. Curbing parking lots makes the exterior of your business look prettier and more organized, demonstrating to customers that you are dedicated to providing high-quality service in all aspects of your business.

Additionally, curbs make cleaning more accessible, as the curbs themselves corral in debris and trash. Thus, keeping your lot tidy is easier than ever before.

  1. Strengthens Pavement

Adding curbs to your parking lot strengthens the pavement by maintaining integrity around the edges of the lot, adding thickness in highly trafficked areas, and reducing traffic to weak areas by preventing drivers from driving there. This, in turn, increases the durability and lifespan of your parking lot.

  1. Indicates Pavement Edges

Have you ever been in a parking lot and struggled to see the edges of the pavement, especially at night? Unfortunately, it is far too familiar of a problem, but you can easily remedy this with curbing. Curbing allows drivers to see exactly where they are supposed to park. This indicates to drivers how to line up their cars and how far forward to pull; thus, decreasing fender bumps and other accidental collisions.

Plus, curbing parking lots provides drivers with a pronounced traffic flow to follow. When drivers know where to go, it decreases traffic and reduces the chances of accidents.

What About Striping?

It is recommended that all parking lots with more than a few parking spots have striping. When combined with curbing, striping provides drivers with easy parking instructions that will benefit their driving experience, decrease traffic slowdown, and prevent accidents. While some business owners feel as though doubling up is unnecessary, the combined benefit of both amenities makes a substantial difference in your parking lot’s overall functionality and beauty.
