ADA Parking Lot Striping & Inspection
When it comes to parking lot ADA Compliance, providing adequate signage, stripes, curbs, down to the size of cracks in the pavement – these are all items that must be address by a (CASp) Certified Access Specialist AND fixed by a professional parking lot striping company. Typically these are two different companies, with ADA-Striping – you get everything fixed and inspected under one umbrella. We work with a select team of American with Disability Act Inspectors as well as architects and ADA construction companies.
All commercial properties with access to the public should be reviewed by a CASp. Starting with your parking lot – when any individual living in a wheelchair, cannot find handicap parking, the spaces arent big enough, or there are barriers to your business, can sue.
Additionally, if your walkways do not have hand-rails at the correct height, wheelchair ramps, or if your doorways are too heavy to open – you can be liable for a lawsuit.
Additionally within your business, customers must have access to your bathrooms, walkways, and more – like everyone else has access to on an equal level.

Companies who show they have made the appropriate effort to update their facilities for ADA-Compliance, will do better if taken to court.

Sadly, some are making a business out of suing small business who are often forced to close their doors due to the extensive cost in ADA lawsuits and the construction cost to revamp the building to match the ADA-code.
