Dear Mister Condo,
Are there any companies that map out designated parking spaces in condo parking lots?
Mister Condo replies:
I.A, mapping of condo parking spaces usually happens when the condo declaration is filed. In a new build, that duty might fall to the architect. In an existing condo where new blacktop is applied or a parking lot is milled and rebuilt, the line striping usually falls to the paving or blacktop contractor. There are many companies is Virginia that provide parking lot line striping services. My guess is that they would also be useful in helping to map out designated spaces as provided in the condo’s original declaration. I checked the Southeastern Virginia Community Associations Institute website and found the following list – http://www.sevacai.org/directory/ads/asphalt-maintenance-and-or-line-striping,9.html.
If you are not in Southeastern Virginia, head over to https://www.caionline.org/Chapters/Pages/Find-A-Chapter.aspx and scroll down to Virginia to find the local chapter of CAI near you. Reach out to them for a list of vendors that are chapter members who offer the services you seek. It’s always a good idea to do business with a CAI vendor as they are skilled in working with community associations like yours. Happy mapping!
