Hand Applied Seal Coating

We differ ourselves from other paving companies in many ways. One of the most important is how we apply sealant to our pavement. Seal coating is the technique used to preserve your asphalt and that's why it's so crucial. Seal coating not only makes it easier to clean and maintain but it also enhances the over all appearance to the asphalt. Seal coating is also what gives asphalt that dark black and shiny appearance. Seal coating is also wonderful because it defend your surface against oxidation and will greatly increase your asphalts life span.

As part of our commitment to customer service we offer our services 24/7. Major construction can be a walk up traffic killer, which is why we work round the clock to fit your schedule. Many of our commercial customers have us come early in the morning on Sundays to prevent disturbance to their regular customers. Because of our extensive work with municipal offices that require us to work in the middle of the night we are quite use to this. For residential applications we would love to pave your driveway or resurface it well you are busy at work. We aim to please and work at your convenience.

Cold Weather Paving

Many asphalt contractors and pavers simply refuse to work in cold weather. For many years cold weather paving was frowned upon. Many believe that it is difficult to get good compaction in cold weather. We disagree with techniques that we have learned over the years those paving projects no longer have to wait til spring. We have cold weather paving down to a science and we also have several unique pieces of equipment specially designed for it. Where others won't dare tread we boldly go. If the snow is on the ground and the ground is frozen we can't lay pavement. If the asphalt plant is open we will pave it.


Asphalt is the worlds number one choice for surfacing solutions. The U.S has been using asphalt for years because asphalt pavement is cost effective to maintain and construct and quite smooth. Many people think that asphalt is not Eco friendly but on the contrary it is quite environmentally safe. Asphalt which can be also called blacktop or tarmac is a constantly evolving product. Many Scientist and civil engineers are striving to find new and different green ways to make cleaner asphalt.
