A Road Comparison:
Two roads were paved in 2017. The first Road was sealed with GSB-88® within a month or so of it being paved. The second Road was paved, then left unsealed. Both Roads were routinely checked for decay. 2 years later, the difference is impressive! The first Road sealed with GSB-88® still looks Great, while the second Road, left unsealed, is showing clear signs of decay—the top coat is wearing away exposing loose aggregates. The County Engineer (Marion Co.)
Many of the National Park Service’s deferred maintenance issues could have been avoided with proper preventative attention. "‘You can pay me now or pay me later,‘ says a 1970s oil-filter commercial, which advised spending on preventative auto care to avoid costly repairs later. The slogan is a good analogy for how the deferred maintenance backlog at America’s national parks has climbed to nearly $12 billion.
The mission of the National Park Service is to preserve and protec
"We greatly look forward to continuing work with Gee Asphalt Inc. and would highly recommend them to any county interested in using their product." This past summer the Berrien County Road Department contracted Gee Asphalt Inc. to treat approximately six miles of roadway with GSB-88®. The BCRD had been searching for a product like this for several years to use as an alternative to our standard sealcoat process. After this trial run with Gee Asphalt, we have determined GSB-88®
"Due to funding shortfalls, local agencies are directing more funding in preventive maintenance on HMA pavements in order to extend the life of the pavement." – Todd Kinney, Clinton County Engineer, Past President, Iowa County Engineers Association (ICEA) How does Gee and GSB-88® help Jones County with funding shortages? “Typically in the past, there wasn’t such as emphasis on shortage of funding, so it was a practice of use the existing pavement until it's completely deterio

“Complements to your Lincoln, NE crew!"
"…Following the A St. incident, James at Lincoln Roads put me in touch with Myles and, after some uncertainty about available time, we were able to connect. Myles and his two guys, Will and Clifford, were cordial and went out of their way to get my vehicle cleaned up. Sparkles plenty now! My thanks to them and you for doing things the way we wish others would. Great example of how
This 2003 e-mail about GSB® performance, written by an industry expert, is just as relevant today as it was then! From: Peter Sebaaly Sent: 1/ 22/2003 To: Dan Gee Subject: Preventive Maintenance Dan, …for your meeting with the Iowa Highway Research Board. The first thing you want to do is to educate those in charge that preventive maintenance is the best way to keep up with their pavement system. Preventive maintenance means that you do something to the pavement before you st
Why did the Gee Seal Change? For the observant among you, the math doesn’t add up. We seemed to go from “In Business for 44+ Yrs” to “Est. 1950”. The explanation is an easy one. While the company name “Gee Asphalt Systems was launched in 1973, it rose up on the stable foundation of Gee Grading & Excavating, est. in 1950 by Albert Gee.

(excerpted from “How Pittsburgh is test driving tech to make your commute smarter.” Sept 6, 2017, Jeffrey Brown reporting) Another problem for drivers and the city, potholes and decaying streets. And there’s a project under way here to deal with that. Pittsburgh has more than 800 miles of roads and, like most cities, a limited budget to maintain them. Professor Christoph Mertz has devised software that could help the city better determine where to send repair crews.
