As a family business, here at Gee, we have been conducting research on preservation products for close to 50 yrs and counting. But, as we all have observed firsthand, the asphalt industry has changed while costs have risen--and roads just don’t last as long as they used to. And, in response and under the mandate of reducing costs and sustaining vital infrastructure, many other entities (only some are listed to the side) have done independent research with all the same results

At this stage, to stall further deterioration, temporary fixes often are applied--but the
“We’ve always done it this way.”
It’s a familiar statement that approves the Worst-First maintenance strategy again for the next fiscal year. Yet the same decision-makers would agree the same statement is a business killer even among multi-million dollar companies revealing a lack in vision to meet consumer demands.
