Zach Lovett and Mark Estrada started striping parking lots throughout Texas in the early 2000s. Through a lot of grit and optimism, they built the company into a customer-first pavement maintenance business based out of Houston but serving Texas. As the operation grew, they added Marty Harris to lead the paving division. The team has formed a culture focused on employees, customers and quality work.
