SNOW REMOVAL

1

Pressure Wash

Proper cleaning is the most important step.

We like to compare pressure washing before sealing to priming before you paint. An improperly prepared surface can lead to flaking and then eventually failure. Unlike some of our competitors, we feel that the surface requires more than sweeping and blowing.

A thorough pressure washing will ensure that the surface is free from dirt, dust and debris that could impair the sealants ability to properly cure.

Spending a little extra money to do it the right way the first time will end up saving you hundreds or possibly thousands of dollars in the long haul.

Crack Fill

Patching prolongs the life of your driveway.

Crack filling is the melting of rubber to a liquid form and then placing the rubber into the crack until it fills. We use the Crafco Supershot which keeps the material at a constant temerature and is required for the filler to set up properly.

After the rubber is shot into the crack, we take it a step farther by smoothing out the rubber with a v-squeegee to obtain a smooth, flat appearance. By doing so we alleviate any humps that can be torn up in the winter.

Gatoraid is a thick sealer that is squeegeed onto multi-cracked areas to prevent the cracking from growing any further. This does not permanently fix the damaged area but is an inexpensive and necessary patching solution. We brush oil primer onto oil-spots to allow the sealer to adhere.

Sealcoat

A protective barrier is necessary in the Tahoe area.

We use Overkote with 2% latex which is a strong bonding agent that is highly recommended in the Tahoe area. We spread the latex uniformly with squeegees.

To prevent people and vehicles from entering the driveway we block your drive way with a barricade and cones.

For maximum results the driveway should not be driven on for at least 24hrs. Sprinklers that hit the driveway should also be turned off.

To prevent scuffing, avoid cranking tires in one spot for 2 weeks and on hot days for a month.

For parking lots striping is done with a Graco Striper using top of the line striping paints.
