  • Project Description

Scope of Work

  • Remove and replace 67,930 square feet of failed concrete in 13 locations over eight phases
  • Sawcut concrete to five-foot squares
  • Load and off-haul concrete
  • Cement-treat existing baser material and compact
  • Set #4 rebar at 18” on center
  • Set ¾” dowels at 12” on center into existing concrete
  • Install dowel baskets with ¾” smooth dowels at 12” on center at all joints
  • Pour 8” thick concrete slab with 5,000 PSI, 7 sack concrete.
  • Total concrete poured was around 1,900 cubic yards
  • Sawcut approximately 30,000 linear feet to cut up existing concrete
  • Schedule/duration from start to finish: Eight weeks

Challenges

  • Restrictions to work hours
  • Facility operations had to continue at this large trucking / distribution center without interruption, with 150 to 200 trucks in and out per day. We phased the job out as to not disturb the operations of the customer. We kept areas neat and secure and equipment out of the way.
  • Work was completed in the fourth quarter, and weather was a factor. We met the original deadlines despite days of rain. For example, if we had rain on Monday we accelerated and extended our work on Tuesday when there was no rain.
  • Match preexisting hardscape.
  • Physical obstacles—lots of large semi-trucks moving in and out daily. Especially tough when pouring the drive isles. They were 30’ wide and we were doing 15’ of it at a time. Large semi trucks traveling right beside the work area. Then on pour days you were adding 22-27 concrete trucks to the traffic.

Solutions

Your one-stop source for pavement repairs, concrete, and fencing services.

The capacity, skills, and equipment needed to effectively execute all manner of pavement repairs, concrete repairs, site construction projects, and commercial fencing needs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, greater Sacramento, and California’s central valley region.

  • Customer Satisfaction

    We remove frustration/stress from the process and customers experience transparency as we work from estimating to project completion — because they do not have to obtain bids, manage, or deal with invoicing paperwork resulting from multiple contractors. Projects are run much more efficiently and communications vastly improved by reducing the number of contractors on the job.

  • One Warranty

    All of our work is covered by one warranty that is transferable should a property be sold, and every job receives a follow-up call to ensure customer satisfaction. Our “best in the business” three-year warranty is triple the industry standard—and your quality guarantee.

  • Project Continuity

    Working with DRYCO is both a professional and a personal experience. Each client works with a dedicated estimator—your direct contact throughout the course of your projects. Our team consists of individuals who are experienced, dedicated, and reliable.

Pavement Management & Scope Development

In order to save time, scope development needs to be accomplished with a paving contractor you trust. Effective scope development involves a thorough technical assessment of all asphalt and concrete surfaces, including drainage, striping, and ADA access. At DRYCO, we pride ourselves on quality scope development to provide accurate and comprehensive estimates for every job.

Sealcoating

Experts in cost-effective sealcoat services.

Sealcoating asphalt allows pavement to stay flexible for as long as possible by protecting the binder (liquid asphalt) that holds the pavement together. Over the past 25 years we have been leaders in innovation when it comes to materials and application techniques. We are the first company in Northern California to perfect our own spray-on sealcoat machines. This method is the only way to get coverage on tight surfaces—which we find on 90% of the lots we seal—and a uniform appearance.

SURFACE PREPARATION

Preparation is the most critical step of the sealcoating process and is most often the indicator of a poor job. The surface must be perfectly clean and all cracks 1/4″ and larger need to be blown out and filled with a high-quality, hot-applied crack filler such as Craftco or Duraseal. DRYCO sealcoating solutions always include hot-applied crack filling to ensure that the finished product meets our standard of quality. Also, any striping changes need to be covered with black paint so they don’t show through—a phenomenon known as ghosting—as the sealcoat wears off.

SPRAY-ON APPLICATION

Most surfaces have been sealcoated more than once in their lifetime. This creates a “tight surface” where all the voids have been filled and the sealer has worn off the rocks, giving the surface a worn-out appearance. The squeegee method of applying sealcoat pulls the sealer off the tight surface and creates streak marks, so DRYCO re-engineered our machines to spray the material instead. You get more sealer on the ground spraying than you do when you squeegee, and this equates to greater value for our customers and a seamless appearance.

Project Description

Scope of Work

Site Security & Fence Demolition

  • Establish equipment and trucking stage point each morning
  • Remove existing rusted, buried, and falling chain-link fence
  • Remove small organic materials
  • Cut one small area of fence to allow panic gate exit
  • 2 working days

Prep & Installation of New Fence

  • Set 4” square 11-gauge post in concrete footings at 8’ on center along sloping grade
  • Measure each slope for custom fabricated fence panels
  • Custom build dual top rail single bottom rail 8’ high with 1-1/2” Square pickets spaced 3-3/4” on center
  • Hot-dip galvanize after fabrication, followed by powder coat
  • Weld panels to posts and touch up welds with matching paint
  • Pave for new panic gate walkway
  • Install one exit gate with panic bar to match existing materials
  • 14 working days

Challenges

  • Working on heavily sloped hillside- limited working space
  • Custom 3 rail fence panels following dramatic grade all hot-dip galvanized
  • Did I mention it was custom built to the slope of the hill? Meaning each picket and rail were spaced and aligned to follow a very specific slope prior to being hot-dip galvanized and powder coated
  • Welding in dry high vegetation area- fire extinguisher on standby!
  • Any mistakes in measurement or construction would have resulted in weeks of time added to work date- there were none.
