I need to remove some lines in an area of my lot.  How can we do that?

Most linemarking contractors are not properly equipped to remove lines permanently.  That said, they will usually resort to painting over the existing lines using black or grey paint and hope for the best.  Unfortunately, over time, the black or grey paint will wear off, exposing visible the original lines and creating confusion for those trying to navigate your lot.  Sure-Seal IS equipped with equipment specifically designed to remove traffic paint from asphalt and concrete in a rapid and cost-effective manner.  Black out paint can be used for temporary changes……..but more often than not, your changes are permanent.  Choose the permanent removal option for your changes when required.  It is your cheapest option in the long run.
