About Striping

Introduction: Unleashing the Power of Striping

The world of commercial properties is fast-paced and continuously evolving, and one cannot ignore Striping’s crucial role in its dynamics. An extensive guide on striping is therefore deemed a necessity: as property owners, contractors, or entrepreneurs – this phenomenon is an integral part of your scope. Striping involves marking symbols, lines, or patterns on the surface, a fundamental part of our roads, parking lots, and parking spaces. This procedure contributes to safer, more organized, and aesthetically pleasing spaces. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the striping process, its benefits, and why you should consider working with professional striping contractors.

The Striping Process

The first and foremost concern is to understand the striping process: the first stage is preparing the surface for striping. This step may include cleaning the area or sealing it in the case of asphalt surfaces. Professional parking lot striping contractors are equipped with the knowledge and machinery to accomplish this task smoothly.

While the striping process varies slightly depending on the type of material, let’s focus on asphalt striping, which is commonly used in parking lots and roads. After the asphalt surface area is sealed and properly dried, different marking templates are ready to be placed. Whether it’s parking lot line striping or marking out directional signage, each requires precision. After everything is set, the asphalt painting is performed using specific machines. These machines can efficiently paint lines on asphalt, making sure lines are straight, even, and neat.

Benefits of Striping

Accuracy and precision in striping bring numerous benefits. A striper parking lot or a roadway is not only visually appealing but also beneficial for efficient space utilization. Seal and striping maximize the parking lines and arrows, effectively allowing more vehicles in, meaning increased revenue for commercial property owners or managers.

The safety advantages are undeniable. Proper striping reduces accidents or misunderstandings about parking and the movement of vehicles. By outlining pedestrian walkways, exits, entrances, and disabled spots, it guarantees a safer environment for both drivers and pedestrians.

Moreover, quality sealing and striping can safeguard your asphalt against the damage caused by weather or general wear and tear. It acts as a protective layer, extending the life of your asphalt which in turn, saves you the cost of asphalt repair or replacement in the longer run. Working with affordable striping and sealing contractors can thus be a valuable long-term investment for commercial property owners.

The Importance of Choosing a Professional Striping Contractor

Navigating the striping industry might seem daunting due to several service providers. Yet, considering factors such as experience, reputation, locality, and price can simplify this task. If you are looking for ‘asphalt striping near me’ or ‘asphalt striping companies near me’, it’s essential to prioritize local contractors. They understand the area’s weather conditions and local regulations, which can directly impact your striping decisions and outcomes.

When contracting professionals like parking lot line striping or pavement line striping contractors, they ensure precision, minimize wastage, adhere to safety protocols, and save time. Professional companies also offer services like parking lot paving and striping, making them a one-stop solution to refurbish and maintain your commercial spaces.

Many renowned contractors also provide related services like asphalt seal coating and striping, lot striping services, and parking lot repair and striping. So if you are looking forward to enhancing the appeal and usability of your commercial properties, professional striping contractors are definitely worth investing in.

Conclusion

In conclusion, striping is a strategic approach towards commercial property management. It induces efficiency, safety, visual appeal, and longevity of your spaces, translating into better user experiences and profitability. So, whether you choose local professionals or national enterprises for your striping needs, make sure they align with your business needs and ethics.

About Saint Clair Shores, Michigan

History

Located along the shores of Lake St. Clair and inhabited by French settlers as early as 1710, during which time the area was referred to as L’anse Creuse, the future St. Clair Shores would remain mainly a rural farming area populated by largely French and German immigrant families into the early 20th century. These local family surnames have survived into the 21st century and can be found in the surnames of current residents and among numerous residential street names.

From 1835 until 1843, the area was part of Orange Township, among the first townships platted in Michigan and part of Macomb County. In 1843, Orange Township was renamed Erin Township, in homage to the numerous Irish immigrants who had moved into the area and had begun to exert their political influence. From 1843 until 1911, what is now St. Clair Shores was a part of Erin Township, parts of which make up today’s municipalities of Eastpointe, Roseville, and St. Clair Shores.

In 1911, the eastern portion of Erin Township was partitioned off to become Lake Township. St. Clair Shores was incorporated as a village in 1925 and remained a part of Lake Township until, after numerous failed attempts, its residents voted to incorporate as the city of St. Clair Shores in January 1951. Lake Township continued adjacent to the city until 2009, when residents of the village of Grosse Pointe Shores (that portion of Grosse Pointe Shores in Macomb County located within Lake Township) voted to incorporate as a city.

Beginning around the time of the First World War, St. Clair Shores became a favored playground for gamblers, rum runners, and lakefront tourists alike, culminating during Prohibition, but continuing through the Second World War era. During these years, the village was the home to many popular roadhouses, blind pigs, and gambling establishments, such as the Blossom Heath Inn. St. Clair Shores’ lakefront location and proximity to Canada coupled with a receptive and often participative community made it an advantageous haven for rum runners, and the area was actively involved in the rum-running era of Prohibition. Local residents, politicians, and law enforcement of the era were known to sometimes conflict with both state and federal officials over their attempts to regulate these illegal, but economically vital, activities within the community.

The Eagle Pointe subdivision, one of many platted within the village of St. Clair Shores during the early 20th century, was platted along a part of the lake shore in 1916. During the next few decades, dozens of subdivisions were platted through the local farmland, but most were not developed in earnest until after the Second World War, when St. Clair Shores became the fastest-growing suburb of Detroit during the 1950s.

From 1927 until 1959, the community was the location of the Jefferson Beach Amusement Park, a major lakefront attraction for the Detroit area and beyond. Opened in 1927, it boasted the longest roller coaster in the United States and numerous other midway attractions, a large, ornate lakefront dance pavilion, and a large, sandy beach popular with swimmers and sun bathers. In 1955, a fire destroyed some of the attractions and buildings within the once-popular park, and this, coupled with changing public tastes, accelerated its demise. While the owners of Jefferson Beach Amusement Park considered rebuilding, by this time the park was not popular with local government officials, and the city council had begun exploring forcing the closure of the facility or purchasing it for public use. Instead, the park owners, who had previously started building an onsite marina facility, began to expand that part of the facility. By 1959, the remaining park amusements and buildings were demolished to make room for the greatly enlarged Jefferson Beach Marina. All that remained of the once grand amusement park was its large, ornate lakefront dance coliseum, which for years thereafter was relegated to use as a marina storage facility and marine supply store until it, too, was destroyed by fire.
