As preparations begin for the daunting task ahead, one local company stands ready to meet the challenge of repairing Seattle’s streets head-on. With over 30 years of experience and a comprehensive line of top-quality, industrial-grade concrete sealants and repair solutions, Construction Systems Supply (CSS) is well versed in providing cost-effective solutions to road maintenance woes.
CSS founder, Ron Riva, knows what it takes to complete jobs well and on-budget. Riva, a thirty-year construction systems veteran, says he is happy to hear that the Mayor is looking to make long-lasting repairs to Seattle’s streets and looks forward to an opportunity to help.
“I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen other cities opt for cheap patch jobs over truly repairing the roads,” Riva said. “Cheap fixes routinely fail and end up costing more capital in the long run. I am glad to know that our own Mayor plans to invest in quality concrete repairs and road maintenance solutions designed for long-term results.”
For asphalt repair, Riva recommends that the city consider the use of Aquaphalt, a product that CSS supplies and uses for municipal and industrial projects. Eliminating the need for large equipment and big construction crews, Aquaphalt is simply poured, leveled, sprinkled with water and compacted for a long-lasting, durable repair. The product can be applied to wet asphalt and can even be used in the rain, thus minimizing or eliminating weather-related delays.
For concrete repairs, Construction Systems Supply’s Eco-Polymer product line would also make an ideal match for Seattle’s climate. The company’s NOVOLAC epoxy coatings may be applied to damp or wet surfaces making them ideal for repairing bridge microfractures. More than just a patch, these epoxy coatings go a step further by protecting the infrastructure against future degradation caused by exposure to salts, alkalis, sewage or diluted mineral acids. In addition, NOVOLAC epoxies offer outstanding resistance to gasoline, diesel fuel and other petroleum products.
All products in CSS’s Eco-Polymer line are 100 percent solids that bond both chemically and mechanically to substrates, and are environmentally friendly.
