Most paving contractors install, maintain, and repair pavements for a variety of clients, but experienced, competent contractors understand that different clients have different needs. For example, upscale subdivisions typically rank the aesthetic appeal of their pavements very highly, while municipalities often prioritize safety and long-term value. If you manage an industrial facility, you need a paving contractor who understands your unique needs.
What Are Some of the Unique Needs for Industrial Paving?
There is no such thing as a universal template that paving contractors can use to identify and fill the needs of every client in every industry. Even customers in the same industry can have vastly different needs. However, at Marathon Solutions Group, we have identified several aspects of industrial paving that are seldom encountered on other projects.
• Vehicle weights tend to be greater. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. If your facility receives or dispatches just 10 of these trucks daily, your pavement is receiving stresses equivalent to 96,000 cars every day. Your pavement must be engineered and constructed to withstand the strain and wear inflicted by such loads.
• Industrial pavements tend to be much larger than those at the average shopping center, hotel, or restaurant. Sheer size can present a variety of challenges. For example, when constructing the pavement, special attention must be given to the grading to ensure proper drainage, and when performing routine maintenance, it will often be necessary to complete the work one section at a time.
• In an industrial setting, pavements are often subjected to spills that can harm the pavement as well as the environment. Trucks may leak diesel or oil, or chemicals used in the manufacturing process may be spilled when tankers are unloaded. Runoff from the pavement must be carefully channeled and collected so that no environmental damage is caused.

An inspired approach to quality residential,
and commercial projects
Marathon was established in 2005 by two best friends that met during their Junior Year of High School at Spring Woods in Houston, Texas. Starting out with only a Chevy Tahoe, 4″ paint roller and the belief that if you listen to your customers’ needs, give 110% and provide the best service in the market you will have a client for life. As it would turn out, those principals paid off!
We went from applying 300 gallons of traffic paint our first year in business to installing over 45,000+ gallons of paint in 2019! More than 80% of our projects year after year are from repeat clients.
