Winter-Caused Pavement Problems To Tackle This Spring

April 25th, 2019

Our Midwest seasonal freezing and thawing cycle is brutal on pavement. This winter brought wide temperature swings, and we’re just now starting to see the damage. It’s not just the temperatures that are to blame for springtime potholes. De-icing materials (like commercial-grade rock salt) compromise protective sealcoating and breakdown asphalt and concrete over time. Pavement Damage Caused By Freezing, Thawing and De-icing Take a quick springtime walk just about anywhere right now and you’ll see driveways heaving, curbs splitting, and roads pitted with potholes. See if you can spot any of the following in your neighborhood. Heaving Heaving is caused by…

Sinkholes in Your Parking Lot?

January 18th, 2018

We treat parking lots a lot like many of us treat our health; we typically wait to call the professional and have them take a look until an issue becomes visible. As a parking lot contractor, we receive many calls throughout the season regarding actual sinkholes which have formed within our customers’ lots and the majority of them occur within close proximity to a catch basin(sewer) designed to remove water from the lot. When these issues occur, in the same way we want a doctor to approach our health, we want to inform our customers on the actual root of…

Sealcoat Does More Than “Just Make It Black”

January 11th, 2018

I can’t tell you how many times this comment has been communicated to me when speaking about sealcoating a parking lot.

It may seem as though you are saving money by delaying necessary repairs and sealcoating. However, much like the majority of the medical community will agree…

Choosing THE Right Contractor

December 19th, 2017

The Winter season is THE best time to get a contract in place for your Spring parking lot projects. The last of the asphalt plants close around the beginning of December so it allows for time for contractors to look at your project outside of the busy construction season and most often will give you the opportunity for better pricing! There is no shortage of commercial parking lot paving contractors within the Chicagoland market. For example, a quick search on The Better Business Bureau website using the term “paving contractor” specific to our area will provide a result of 297…
