Paving

Paving

A strong first impression is a beautiful thing. And whether you’re making a fresh start or maintaining your current lot, MAUL has the tools & expertise to give your grounds the type of beauty that lasts.

  • Removal & Replacement: For potholes or surface cracking, we’ll remove the affected area, install a new gravel sub-base and apply a fresh surface to your specifications.
  • Resurfacing: We’ll install a new layer of asphalt across the entire lot.
  • New Asphalt Installation: We’ll start beneath the surface – building a gravel sub-base for strength and ideal drainage. Then, once we’ve achieved the correct surface density, we’ll apply binder and surface course material.

Sealcoating & Crack-Sealing

Sealcoating & Crack-Sealing

When water makes its way beneath the surface of your lot, it weakens the sub-base – putting pressure on the surface and opening cracks & potholes. With the right Sealcoating & Crack-Sealing, we’ll let nothing slip through the cracks.

  • Standard Sealcoating Material: Fortified with surfactants, Coal Tar Asphalt Sealer is fuel-resistant and ultra-durable.
  • Green Sealcoating Product: This environmentally-friendly sealer will keep your lot attractive while preserving the natural beauty of our world.
  • Premium Material: A blend of polymer and special surfactants gives the Polymer Modified MasterSeal (or Liquid Road) superior adhesion, flexibility and durability.
  • Hot Asphalt Crack Sealing: This product stops moisture at the surface and extends the life of your asphalt.

Concrete

Concrete

You never settle, and neither do we. Repeat clients like Chili’s, Boston Market and Marriott trust MAUL for concrete services. That’s because we install our concrete with a stronger, more stable base – to prevent settling and reinforce your ground.

  • Curbs & Gutters: Let’s keep your ground covered and beautiful, from edge to edge.
  • Sidewalks: All of our sidewalks comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Plus, we build each sidewalk with a strong base, so they last longer and stay crack-free.
  • Ramps: We’ll keep you in compliance with ADA standards and make sure all of your visitors have smooth access.

CATCH BASINS & DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

CATCH BASINS & DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

Let’s put an end to parking lot puddles. We’ll optimize your systems to collect runoff and transport it to local waterways. This keeps your lot dry and welcoming – rain or shine.

  • Standard Catch Basins: We’ll engineer your system with hydraulic cement and smart design – putting a stop to any unwanted openings in the basin.
  • Concrete-encased Drainage Basins: Reinforced by a concrete square, this basin is more durable than asphalt alternatives.
  • Trench Drainage Basins: These shallow basins are ideal for dumpster areas, loading docks or entrance/exit points of a parking lot.
  • French Drains: These drains protect the sub-base layer of your parking lot, diverting moisture and preserving structural integrity.

Cold Milling

Cold Milling

There’s potential beneath the surface. We’ll uncover it by removing the full (or partial) depth – adjusting the grade of your lot, improving your drainage and extending the life of your grounds.

  • IT’S FRIENDLY TO YOUR BUDGET… We’ll only remove the failed surface of your asphalt and salvage the layer beneath. This saves you time & money, while allowing traffic through your lot for much of the process.
  • …AND IT’S GOOD TO THE NATURAL WORLD. Cold Milling technology requires far less processing & handling of waste than conventional methods, so more of the material can be recycled.

STRIPING, SIGNAGE & PARKING BLOCK INSTALLATION

STRIPING, SIGNAGE & PARKING BLOCK INSTALLATION

Every business needs direction. With our full suite of Striping, Signage & Parking Block capabilities, visitors to your lot will always find their way.

  • Striping: From individual lines to handicap symbols, crosswalks and more, we’ll paint your ground with the symbols visitors need to navigate your lot.
  • Signage: We’ll install the standards: “stop,” “yield” and “handicap.” But if your needs are more specific, we’ll install signs designed just for your lot.
  • Parking Blocks: With concrete & rubber blocks, we’ll help you protect the edges of your ground.

Retail: Your customers need to access your business. And they need it to be easy & straightforward – at all times. That’s why we schedule our work around your busiest hours, maximizing access and minimizing interruption.

MEDICAL: Interrupting your services simply isn’t an option, so we plan & execute every job to maximize access and guarantee safety.

Commercial & Industrial: Downtime isn’t an option. So, we’ll create an aggressive timeline to cut it down.

Homeowner Association: By developing a comprehensive maintenance program for your entire community, we’ll help you save valuable resources.
