Parking Lot Striping Painting Costs

The best commercial painting in Calgary is not noticeable. It perfectly blends into the environment, provides simple direction, and appears crisp and clear to remove any doubt about its intention. Unfortunately, this is a little disappointing for commercial painters. Their hard work rarely receives the applause and fanfare that it rightfully deserves. However, that is usually the case with a job well done. 

Luckily, there is still monetary compensation for this valuable service, which makes the lack of recognition much easier to swallow. Although, the cost will vary depending on several elements; elements which may include the amount of striping paint, the complexity of the job, the products used, and the company performing the work. Therefore, understanding more about each of these facets will inform you about the approximate costs.

Facets of Calgary Commercial Painting


Amount of Painting

The amount of painting will introduce the largest amount of price variables. For instance, are you simply painting over the old stall lines, or are you planning to add speed bump colouring and accessible stall designations? Similarly, can you apply paint over the old lines, or will you have to remove the previous product before application? 

As you can see, there are a lot of considerations when it comes to the amount of painting. In some instances, companies will assign a total price to the project, depending on your needs. However, in other cases, they may give you a piece rate depending on your specific painting needs. 

Complexity of Painting

The complexity of painting is another essential facet of commercial painting costs. As an example of this, consider the difference between painting a single line and traffic arrow painting. In the first instance, you simply need to use your line machine and create a straight line. However, in the other example, you must create an outline composed of several lines in different directions and then fill that outline. 

It is easy to see how the complexity affects the price with the examples above, and this idea has evidence. Pricing for stall lines sits around $3-$6 per line, whereas directional arrows start at $15. Similarly, fire lanes, stencilling, and angular lines will also have their own associated costs.

The Painting Products & Company

The painting products play a role in the cost, but it is not nearly as noticeable as the other considerations. Usually, companies have a preferred supplier for their coatings and own the equipment they use. However, this is also why the company you choose is vital.

The painting company may own their equipment, which should lower the overall cost. Although, some companies starting out could not be so fortunate. Similarly, established companies can provide more reasonable prices due to their experience with the work and, ideally, regular cleaning or maintenance contracts.
