We had the opportunity to provide an estimate for a parking lot sink hole repair project in Bolingbrook, IL recently.
We had a client who we worked with previously who noticed a small hole in the asphalt that had developed next to the storm drain in their parking lot. They were concerned that there was a much larger void underneath the pavement and did not want to take an chances of the surface collapsing.
We made time to assess the problem the day after they called us and acknowledged the potential hazard. After giving us approval to proceed with repairing the sinkhole, we quickly mobilized a crew the following week. Our crew arrived first thing Monday, and started by performing a saw cut around the perimeter of the sewer patch. Then they removed the asphalt and excavated the sub-base to the necessary depth in order to sufficiently repair.
The team resealed the failed pipe joint with professional ease and poured an 8” thick concrete patch. We ensured that the soil around the sinkhole was stable and compacted to prevent future sink hole problems.
The client wrote to us thanking us for taking care of it right away as well as for making the repair look seamless, leaving their parking lot looking nice and most importantly safe!

Recently, one of our returning clients contacted our office to request that we replace several staircases and handrails at a building within their industrial park. These concrete stairs had numerous cracks and were falling apart. Additionally, the steel handrails were corroded, rotting, and rusted.
We arrive to the site to begin replacing the concrete stairs. We replaced the staircases with fresh concrete and then moved onto the handrails. The previous handrails were steel. We did not recommend the customer continue using steel, as steel will corrode and rust as they had seen before. We replaced the handrails with aluminum railing, which is a maintenance-free element.
When the job was finished, the client was pleased with the fresh clean look of the new stairs. The client was also pleased that we installed maintenance-free handrails that will not lead to corrosion and rust. For three years in a row, this client has asked us to continue replacing their stairs and handrails, and we will continue to provide quality work in order to have this customer for life.
