No Trev is not stuck in a catch basin ( See instagram and follow our account) . But we have been busy as ever and it hasn't rained, like at all. Temperatures have reached over 100 degrees and the humidity of the north east doesnt help.
Public service announcment from Constantine Sealing Service
Its been plenty hot and the ashpalt temperatures are even hotter. Did you know that you can fry an egg in 5 minutes at 131 degrees? When the air temperature reaches 87 degrees, pavement temperatures can be close to 141 degrees. Please keep all of our four legged friends safe before you walk across any asphalt surface. Place the back of your hand to the surface for 7-10 seconds to determine if it is safe to walk your pup across. We dont want any burnt paws.
With that said I have included 5 facts you also didnt know about our Summer at Constantine Sealing Service...
1- We have completed several basketball and tennis court resurfacing jobsthrough out the state, including our most recent playground color project at The Jennings School in New London. This job required four square and hop scotch layouts for the kids.
2- We tackled our biggest driveway to date totalling 400 gallons of sealer and over 2 days of labor. Between our parking lots and driveways we have used over 24,000 gallons on the year.
3- Our line striper (The big boss, my dad) has painted over 100,000 linear feet of pavement markings totaling over 18 miles.
4- Our dump trucks have hauled over 900 tons of new and old asphalt to repair and replace several parking lots and driveways
5- We have celebrated our 37th year in business as well as our 2016 Top Contractor award from Pavement Maintenance Magazine ( stay tuned for a featured article in an upcoming issue).
Hopefully everyone has been enjoying their summer and the heat. Remeber to keep you dogs safe and stay cool. I dont think this heat is leaving any time soon. Enjoy some of the photos below!
