Frequently Asked Questions
"How long does it take to paint a court?"
A half-court basketball court typically will take under two hours. However, additional three-point lines and other add-ons will add some modest time. A full-court basketball court typically can be done in one four-hour time period.
"How long does the court last?"
Your new basketball court lines will usually remain vibrant for at least two years, but will certainly remain visible beyond that time. We recommend re-striping every three to four years.
"Do I need to do any preparations of my driveway?"
We recommend that you brush off any obvious dirt from the driveway (in order to avoid any discoloring of the lines we paint)--just a basic sweeping of obvious dirt. The most important thing is to make sure that the surface is dry prior to our arrival (with the exception of rain). Also, please remove any large obstructions (cars, trash cans, nets, etc.)
"Do I need to be on site when you paint?"
No need, most of our courts are done when our clients aren't home! We can send you an invoice if you are not able to be there in person.
"How long does it take for the court to dry?"
Our courts can usually be played on in just one hour after being painted! We do, however, recommend waiting 12 hours before driving over the lines.
"Do you guarantee your work?"
Absolutely, although the instances when we have had to do even minor touch-ups have been rare--less than 2% of all our painting jobs.
"Is my driveway big enough for a court?"
Yes, we can accommodate any court size. Home Court Advantage crews use a proprietary stencil and industrial grade equipment that allows us to deliver to you precision quality regardless of your court size.
"What happens when it rains?"
Yes, rain can occasionally get in the way. Although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to reschedule within a few days, we normally leave spots open in a given week for "make-up" days.
