Columbus Parking Lot, Driveway Repair & Sealcoating Since 1958!
Jet-Seal was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1958 by Eugene “Gene” Lovell. Mr. Lovell passed away in 1990 and the business was continued by his oldest son, Ted. Including working with his dad as a teenager, Ted has been in the asphalt maintenance business nearly fifty years. His youngest son, Evan is actively involved in the business as Operations Manager and has been implementing the business principals learned at The Ohio State University, Fisher College of Business.
One of Evan’s first contributions to Jet-Seal was designing a costing program to input all the costs associated with a project, and predetermine profit. While the basic principals of combining labor and material costs with the cost of overhead to determine profit seems simple, the variables are plentiful. The program took months to write, using various formulas in Excel and is continuously being refined. Jet-Seal uses this program to determine which service areas are profitable as well as those that are not. The program is as valuable as any tool used in the entire operation. It has been helpful in determining which areas the company can and cannot be competitive in. Travel time cuts into profits and excludes various neighborhoods from being integrated into our service areas. The larger the project, the less impact travel time has on the final cost. So, Jet-Seal can provide commercial sealcoating services to areas where travel costs can exclude residential sealcoating. A residential crew typically consists of two applicators. If those two applicators spend more time driving than applying sealcoat, the profit is spent on labor and vehicle expense. Whereas, for commercial asphalt maintenance the crew spends most of their time working on the asphalt as opposed to driving around.
There are too many neighborhoods in Columbus to list as service areas or non-service areas. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to determine if your home falls within these boundaries. If you have a commercial parking lot of reasonable size regardless of your location, we can most likely provide you with asphalt services.
Jet-Seal is experienced with all sizes of automobile dealerships. We have provided sealcoating, crack sealing, line striping and paving repairs for Germain Lexus, Mazda and Nissan dealerships. Liberty Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge is a client as is The Dennis Auto Group. We service many hotel/motel properties including such familiar names as Hilton, Hampton Inn, Best Western, Sheraton and Holiday Inn. Jet-Seal provides numerous clients with sealcoating in Columbus including Bishop Watterson High School. We maintain numerous church parking lots in and around Columbus. Jet-Seal’s list of clients is long and impressive. Customers who understand the need for their asphalt parking lot sealcoating to enhance their business curb appeal such as, The Top Steak House choose Jet-Seal. These business owners also recognize the value of maintaining asphalt as opposed to allowing it to deteriorate and suffer the cost of premature paving. A non-maintained asphalt surface will cost as much as seven times more than a well-maintained pavement over a 20-year period. Our body needs preventative maintenance as does our automobiles and homes. The same principals apply to asphalt – pay now or pay much more later.
