Boise Paving

If you're a business owner or a facilities manager, you know that handling the maintenance of your parking lot isn't always simple, especially after a snowy winter and heading into a hot summer.

Parking lot maintenance is incredibly important, however, and can help your storefront or organization location look professional and appealing. A cracked, dirty parking lot could make even the nicest, most updated...

Idaho Asphalt

Are you putting in a driveway this summer during the warm construction season? If so, you're probably considering one of two options: concrete or asphalt. These two choices are attractive for different reasons, but many home and business owners don't realize how cost-effective and advantageous asphalt can be.

Benefits of Asphalt Driveways for...

Boise Paving

Summertime is heating up here in Boise, and we're all hitting the pavement for walks, runs, bike rides, and parades. Particularly in a dry climate like ours, summer can mean dirty pavement that doesn't get "washed" with rain. That means it's time for pavement sweeping.

parking lot

Life is all about choices. Some choices are pretty small, and even in the rush of the moment, they don't seem terribly important. Strawberry gum or spearmint? Pen or pencil? Cheeseburger or salad? There are also bigger choices; what kind of car to buy, where to go on vacation, how to spend your free time. And then, at the top of the "life choices" totem pole, there rests the crown--the decisions that can change your life. Marriage? College? Career? These are the big issues, the choices that...

beautiful parking lot

As human beings, it's our job to take care of things. We take care of houses. We take care of bills. We take care of animals, of each other, of the Earth, of our world; essentially, we take care of everything that requires protection and maintenance, and all because a little care now can prevent a big problem later. Consider, for example, what happens when we put off something important like taking care of the car. What started as a little problem can branch off like a tree, and before we...

walking path

Roads come in a lot of different forms. There are the loyal, reliable roads we drive on every day, communicating with us in lines of white and yellow. There are the paths that we take in our lives--and whether you take the one well-worn or the one less traveled by, these paths still make all the difference. Quieter than both of these, humbler and less noticed, are the modest little brothers: the walkways. We don't think about walkways very much. The fact that we can so easily take them as...

paved walking path

Do you view your driveway as part of the road? Many people don't--and, when you think about it, that makes sense. Driveways are more a part of the home than of the road. Our driveways certainly don't have stoplights or traffic signs or yellow and white lines to tell us where to drive, and we can usually cross them without a crosswalk, and we don't have to share them with hundreds of other drivers at one time. Driveways are more personal in simple, everyday sort of ways. However, driveways...

newly painted road

From the moment we first get our license, it's all about the car. We focus on make and model and passengers and insurance, and, most importantly, how to stay safe with all of the other cars surrounding us. We obsess over the perfect paint-job and envy those who speed past us in gorgeous sports cars. It's true: driving is a big part of our lives, but it can't be "all about the car." The road, too, deserves a fair portion of our attention—after all, it is this silent, snaking path of asphalt,...

fresh pavement

At the heart of almost everything we do, there is a road. Roads unite the world, connecting people to their homes, their favorite stores, their travel destinations, and, most importantly, to each other. Although most of us will use a variety of roads every day, we rarely stop to give much thought to those stretches of painted asphalt that can lead us almost anywhere we want to go. Today, we'll take a close look at the construction of asphalt pavements--not only for a better appreciation of...

road at sunset

When we slip behind the steering wheel, our attention must automatically be everywhere at once: our car, our passengers, the other drivers, the weather conditions--the list is almost endless. However, one of the most important parts of driving is our relationship with the road itself. As drivers, we must pay a lot of attention to the road. Although it is, in its simplest form, a stretch of asphalt that has been lovingly adorned with painted lines and arrows, the road is one of the things we...
