The Ethos Enterprises crew masks everything off to avoid overspray. To guarantee a successful coat, the crew will brush the coating into the asphalt making sure to hit all of the crevices and pores. Several coats are applied.
Along with the basic coatings, Ethos Enterprises also applies accent colors to boarders and trim enhancing the look of a property.
Not only are patterns used to create designs on a surface, but Ethos Enterprises also uses stamps for the handicap symbols. “Typically you have to paint the handicap symbols, and then you have to keep repainting them as the paint wears off,” Flores says. “We actually make the symbol an impression in the asphalt and coat it with our coating making it last virtually the life of the asphalt.”
The Riverside Crossing property owners were so pleased with the final result they are having Ethos Enterprises complete additional stamped asphalt for crosswalks.
Producing quality work is the mantra of Ethos Enterprises, and Flores looks to the same dedication in the contractors he works with. It is this focus and dedication to creating a great product that he believes has helped the company find success.
“We are grateful for the contractors that work with us because they understand our philosophy of high quality and not cutting corners,” he says. “I appreciate working with companies because we can get together, work on the design together and make sure it is a great project. The importance of having great people to work with is key to our success to consistently deliver a great product.”
