In 1981 I was sitting around the kitchen table with my parents discussing the possibility of starting a line striping business. I had spent the summer installing over a million feet of pavement tape in Baltimore for a contractor. With the completion of that contract, I was looking for something to do and my boss suggested I buy a spray machine. Within a short amount of time I had a machine, 10 gallons of traffic paint, and a small bank to stripe in Alexandria. After that job I was hooked on the immediate gratification of parking lot painting.
By 1985 my best friend and my brother had joined me and we were off to the races. We worked days, nights, weekends and holidays, never saying no to a customer’s needs. The quality of our work was unmatched. Our customers kept asking us to do more things for them. By 1995 we were fixing potholes, seal coating, crack filling, installing signs and wheel stops, and of course, painting a lot of parking lots. In fact, we were completing over 1000 jobs per year.
Today we complete over 1500 jobs per year. In our first 24 years we’ve done over 25,000 jobs.
Since then we’ve gone from fixing potholes to paving parking lots and now our asphalt division is well over 50% of our overall business. From driveways to roadways, we’ve become a full service pavement company. In 2006 we celebrated our 25th anniversary. We plan on being around for 25 more. A lot of things have changed since 1981 but our ideals remain the same. We continue to deliver quality workmanship, on time, at a fair market price.
