Asphalt: The Entire Package

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

AsphaltThe parking lot of your business can say a lot about you. If your asphalt is cracked or badly weathered, it can severely detract from your business. PTG wants to help you make sure that not only does your pavement look great for aesthetics and safety purposes, but that the experience of having your asphalt repaired or renewed is a special and easy one. Read on to see how PTG works to make laying your asphalt a stress free process.

  • Careful grading – If your grading is incorrect, you can find yourself with unwanted water pooling in unwanted places. PTG follows drawings as accurately as possible to accommodate the unique grade of your parking lot.
  • Stone Installation – PTG will make sure that the right type of stone goes in for the type of ground you have. Though sometimes setbacks happen involving undercutting and other surprises, PTG will work hard to keep your construction on schedule. We know it’s important for you to be able to have your business up and running ASAP.
  • Concrete Curbing and Flatwork – Keeping the curb at the right grade for rain management is very important. Avoiding the chance of rainwater beginning to pond or stand will help keep your parking lot safe and water free. We also know how important sidewalks are and will make sure that the sidewalks are strategically placed.
  • Installation – Both the equipment and the man behind the equipment are vital when it comes to installation. PTG takes pride in hiring people who are hard workers and know what they’re doing. The team will work together carefully to ensure that your pavement is perfect.
  • Striping, Signage, and Wheel Stops – This is what your customers will notice the most. There is nothing quite as nice as fresh paint on brand new asphalt. PTG will make detailed, geometrical drawings of the parking lot before actually striping to make sure that the parking lot looks appealing.

For new asphalt as well as asphalt maintenance, PTG will work to give you a top-notch product that you can be proud of.

Hiring a Professional to Build Your Retaining Wall

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Looking along a red brick wall.Retaining walls are used when you want to keep earth from shifting and water to stay where it belongs. You can see where this could cause a problem if you decide to make your retaining wall into a DIY project. If you make any kind of wrong assessment or use the wrong types of materials, you may find yourself in a worse mess after building the wall than you were to begin with.

One of the biggest problems that DIYers encounter when building a retaining wall is the angle at which to build the wall. Usually you’re trying to keep soil from sliding into your house or other areas where it is not desired. If you build the wall at the wrong angle, the wall will not be doing its job. It is also important to have the correct drainage system included with your retaining wall so that you can avoid flooding or other water mishaps and damage that can come from not knowing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. The water could even end up flooding neighbors’ properties, which is never good.

PTG offers masonry services with a specialty in retaining walls. We really know how to “hit the bricks” when it comes to masonry work and retaining walls. We know just how devastating it can be if the earth or water that you are trying to keep at bay somehow slips through the cracks. We’ll prepare the site and make sure to install your retaining wall at the right angle. PTG works quickly yet efficiently and we pride ourselves on cleaning up after we install your retaining wall.
