Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from everyone here at DRYCO Construction, Inc.

DRYCO-lantern_nb

While everyone loves a good scare on Halloween night, child safety should not be the source.

Just remember to be safe and cautious of your surroundings while driving this evening, because children are more than twice as likely to be in the path of a car on Halloween while they are trick-or-treating.

Why are you sealcoating in October?!

Every year around this time, we see the same scenario:

It’s October, there is “use it or lose it” money in your budget, and your lot needs a sealcoat.

We see this scenario year in and year out.  The fact of the matter is that a sealcoat done in October will not last as long as a sealcoat done earlier in the season. Warm ground temperatures and good positioning of the sun are essential for a quality sealcoat job.  Sealcoat needs to be able to cure properly, and while we get a few hours of nice 80 degree weather on some days this time of year, it is just not enough.  Once the temperature cools down at night, the curing process is put on hold, and what you are left with is a sub-par sealcoat. Even though it dries, it doesn’t cure properly.

Spray On Seal Coat

Spray-On Sealcoat

Sealcoat material contains a lot of water.  When sealcoat is laid down during the warm weather months, it cures fast.  The water gets sucked out, and the result is a nice dense sealcoat.  The length of time it takes to cure is directly tied to the temperature of the ground and the position of the sun. In October many sections of the parking lot don’t even see the sun and the pavement temperature never gets out of the 50’s.

Squeegee Sealcoat

Squeegee Sealcoat

When the sealer dries slowly, the water does not get drawn out as much and the resulting product is less dense and won’t last.  The sealcoat actually wears off before it gets a chance to cure. You’re much better off waiting until April to seal than doing it in October. In April you have the entire warm season ahead of you and even if it dries slowly that day the warmer days to come will cure it out. In October you’re lucky to get one coat to dry and unlikely to get two coats down in one day, this causes scheduling problems for the restriping crews and the customers. The bottom line is there not much value to be gained sealcoating in October.

Having said that, October is traditionally one of our biggest sealcoating months. Why is that? A lack of pavement knowledge… exactly what this blog is trying to address. Come to our seminar and learn enough to be dangerous about Pavement Maintenance. The February 21st seminar is open for registration.

Looking Out For Our Customers’ Customers

          Sometimes it can be difficult to find the time for pavement maintenance.  Sometimes the business flow just doesn’t allow for it during the work week, and you have no other choice than to try and get the work done on the weekend.

          At DRYCO, we understand that these circumstances occur, and we make it our priority to accommodate our customers so that they can accommodate their customers.  We don’t just care about the customers we work with.. we care about our customers’ customers, and want to ensure a smooth operation to keep the inconvenience across all levels to a minimum.

          Working on the weekends for DRYCO does not just pertain to the crews that show up to do the work.  For weekend jobs, we have to specially open the plants to get the materials needed to perform the work for that day.

          In recent weeks, we have had crews work full Sundays at various Wells Fargo locations.  Because banks have so much parking lot traffic on a daily basis, we could not shut their parking lot down during regular business hours to do the work.  In order to complete the work, we had to schedule the work to be done Sundays, when the bank is closed.

We truly care about every facet of our relationship with our customers,
and will do whatever we can to make everything work out for all.

If you have a need for concrete, fencing, or parking lot repairs,
just give DRYCO a call at 510-438-6500!

DRYCO works in Silicon Valley

DRYCO Construction made its mark last weekend at three of the most desired companies to work for, according to LinkedIn’s “Most InDemand Employers”, a set of rankings of the most sought-after companies on LinkedIn.

DRYCO crews were on site completing jobs at the headquarters for Apple, Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn, all in one weekend!

In Mountain View, the concrete crew did interior and exterior work on a walkway at LinkedIn, while the asphalt crew worked on repairs for a lot over 3000 SF at Google’s Intuit building.

The last of the Silicon Valley work completed over the weekend was for Apple. Crews repaired concrete curbs that had been damaged by tree roots.  Additionally, the asphalt crew did some remove and replace work, and DRYCO finished the weekend with the crews sealcoating and striping a 3600 SF lot.
