They help property owners avoid costly replacements and improve the appearance, safety, and value of their parking lots and driveways, matching the quality inside with the curb appeal on the outside. Currently they do very little 'new construction;' but, a new owner could expand into that market area.

Licensed by the State of California, the business specializes in residential homes, gated communities, homeowner's associations, churches, schools, shopping plazas, hotels, motels, and properties with unique traffic flow and parking situations. They take pride in tailoring each job to fit their customer's needs and pay special attention to lessening inconvenience to tenants and customers so that businesses can remain open during the paving maintenance.
