Have an emergency? Here's how we can help:
No one likes surprises, however, emergencies seem to always happen at the most inconvenient time to include: during snow storms, overnight, weekends, holidays and a host of others. If you find yourself in a situation where a Life Safety Issue (LSI) exists, rest assured, we would be your rapid response partners.
Some emergencies include:
Asphalt / Concrete Heaving:
During the freeze thaw cycle and extreme cold fronts, when water percolates under asphalt and concrete and freezes the result is an asphalt apron or sidewalk that can raise as much as 2” overnight. We can remediate these issues in practically any situation to bring your asphalt / concrete surface back to a level grade and remove tripping hazards
Damaged Catch Basin Structures:
Snow pushers and skid steers are great for rapid removal of snow from parking lots, however, when operated carelessly they can cause significant damage to catch basin curb inlets. Catch basin curb inlet repairs can typically be completed the same day they are called in for service.
Catch Basin Collapse
As the water from parking lot runoff percolates into the catch basins it works its way into the joints of the blocks and behind them. When the water freezes the mortar is forced out of the joints, which leads to catch basin collapses. Catch basin collapses are one of the most common service call items we receive throughout the winter at a rate of about 2-4 per week. Our first response is to arrive on site and immediately cover the exposed opening with plywood and barricades with caution tape. Most catch basin repairs can be completed same / next day.
Emergency Pot Hole Repairs
During the freeze thaw cycle and extreme cold fronts, when water percolates into cracks in the asphalt, the broken asphalt loosens and then is dislodged from vehicle traffic or snowplow activity. We can make immediate repairs with cold patch asphalt mix and then return the following day(s) when the temperatures rise and make the permanent repairs with hot mix asphalt through traditional cut & patch repairs or infrared asphalt restoration. Each state we work in (NJ, PA, DE & MD) has 1-3 different asphalt plants which remain operational all winter on any days where the temperature is above 35 degrees F.
