To stay on top of the latest DOT regulations affecting paving and pavement maintenance in cities, communities, and public areas nationwide, GemSeal participates in trade shows such as the American Public Works Association expo (PWX) and regional municipal events such as the Oklahoma Municipal League annual conference. By attending classes and networking with folks in the governmental sector, we have a better understanding of industry requirements pertaining to paving materials, equipment, and application procedures.
If you work on governmental projects, you also know the importance of using the right products to stay compliant as well as to prolong pavement usability and save taxpayer money. Fortunately, good help is not far away. Your GemSeal representative can advise you on the right products and application process as well as help you determine if renting or purchasing equipment is right for your budget and manpower.
In addition to our own line of products, your regional GemSeal One Stop Shop now carries a full line of crack sealants and patching products that meet government specs. Many of the products we manufacture or supply have been specified for use by DOT highway contractors and governmental agencies throughout the country, so you can be sure that they will perform in the field, wherever you are. In fact, these products have been especially designed to withstand high-traffic areas and provide long-lasting repairs to cracks, joints, potholes, utility cuts, patches, and edge breaks on highways, roads, bridges, city streets, parks, and fairgrounds, as well as airport taxiways and fueling stations.
When you shop at GemSeal, you can also see and handle equipment before renting or purchasing. We stock crack seal, mastic, and seal coat applicator equipment. Recently, we rented a seal coat applicator to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and it was used to seal all the asphalt in their maintenance facility.
If you decide to purchase equipment, we can help you avoid large, upfront out-of-pocket costs and set up more manageable payments through our financing program. Several financing terms, rates, and programs are available to support the seasonality of your business.
As always, our Web site is a useful resource available 24-7. In the governmental section, you can access a state-approved list of crack sealants, browse product information along with technical data for both crack sealants and patching products, check out our photo gallery, or view an application-in-progress video.
