Humble Beginnings to Impressive Growth

When our commercial asphalt company first started we were in a single bay wooden garage. Today, we are in a seven bay, full-service shop with more than 10,000-square-feet of office space. How were we able to accomplish this goal? It took years of hard work, dedication, and investing back into our business to see this impressive growth.

Throughout our history, our commercial asphalt specialists have earned a reputation for providing first-class work with outstanding service at the highest levels of honesty and integrity.

Shaping the Way Our Community Lives

Did you know that our organization has been instrumental in helping to construct numerous projects that have shaped the way of life for the residents of Southwestern PA? It is true. Our commercial asphalt specialists begin their career by worked on gas stations and housing plans in the 1950s before moving to working on local neighborhood businesses and shopping centers in the 1960s.

During the first boom in construction of large shopping malls in the 1970s and 1980s, our team was there to provide asphalt paving and site development for many of the familiar department stores, strip malls, restaurants, and specialty stores people were lining up to visit. In the 1990s, we built and expanded hospital lots, roadways, airports, schools, churches, and colleges throughout the area.

We have also been providing paving and maintenance for Kennywood Park for more than 30 years. Additionally, we helped to build Lost Kennywood and Sandcastle Water Park. Years ago, our team was also instrumental in maintaining the parking lots at Three Rivers Stadium.

Over the last decade, we have built parking lots for both PNC Park and Heinz Field while also expanding the parking lots at Pittsburgh International Airport four times. We have paved Consol Park in Washington, North Hills Village Mall, Tanger Outlets, and re-constructed the Monroeville Expo Mart Convention Center. All of this work was performed while we were building and maintaining hundreds of sites for local businesses and government agencies.

Advancing Technologies in Asphalt Paving

The commercial asphalt specialists at our company are always looking for new and better ways to improve the products we offer to our clients while keeping their prices to a minimum. That is why we have been recycling asphalt pavement for the past 20 years. Additionally, we have been recycling concrete for the past 10 years.

How does recycling our asphalt and concrete help you? Well, both of them are crushed and screened for use as a cost saving alternate sub-base material for use in commercial projects. They have both been tested and approved for use by several independent testing laboratories, which ensures you are able to receive the secure results you want while lowering your total costs.
