Our Affiliations and Accreditations

As a member of the North American Power Sweeping Association and the first NAPSA Certified Sweeping Company in the Greater Raleigh area, Asphalt Enterprises is committed to industry involvement and education, leading to the highest quality and most current services possible for you and your property.

Asphalt Enterprises values our membership in the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce. Through The Chamber of Commerce, we are able to make valuable connections and gain education that ultimately is put to use for you, the customer.

We joined 1-800-Sweeper in 2012, and have reaped great benefits from this supportive industry group as we continue to provide top-notch parking lot sweeping for Raleigh-Durham and all of Eastern NC.

Through this partnership, we have shared our knowledge, gleaned from others, stayed on top of technologies and training techniques in the sweeping industry and found better ways to maintain our quality while keeping our prices competitive. It is a win-win-win!

As of 2020, Asphalt Enterprises is a North American Power Sweeping Association Certified Sweeping Company. This certification shows that AE is trained in best practices by national experts providing a much safer work experience for our staff and our clients.


“Asphalt Enterprises re-sealed the parking lots, repainted the stripes, and re-numbered the parking spaces at Fredericksburg Townhomes in Goldsboro on July 15 and 16. The parking lots look terrific. The finished product is beyond our expectations. The crew was very professional and easy to work with and completed the work in a timely manner so that residents could return their vehicles to the finished sections by 6 p.m. each day. Several residents have gone out of their way to express their pleasure with how the subdivision looks with the freshened parking areas. When the need arises in the future for parking lot maintenance we will definitely call on Asphalt Enterprises.”
-Jim Meachen
President, Fredericksburg Townhomes


“You (Asphalt Enterprises) are ahead of the curve in your conversion to CNG (compressed natural gas); I don’t know of any other companies in your industry locally who are making the switch… Especially since the change over to CNG is not Federally or State mandated, you’re very forward-thinking… Though larger fleet companies are catching on, we are definitely still in the first quarter mile of this.”
-Excerpt from a recent conversation with Jerry O’Keefe, Manager of Large Accounts for PSNC Energy


“Scott and Sylvia of Asphalt Enterprises have been a trusted part of Oak Park Shopping Center for 11 years.  While we count on them for lot sweeping, bi-weekly trash can service and for all of our snow and ice removal, we also contracted their services for seal-coating, pavement striping and signage for our recent up-fit.  We are happy to recommend Asphalt Enterprises for any of their excellent services.”

“I have been the property manager for Olde Raleigh Village since 2007.  Asphalt Enterprises has been our contractor for nightly sweeping, nightly trash can pick up, quarterly pressure washing and asphalt repair since 2003. They have been extremely helpful and irreplaceable in assisting me in managing a very busy shopping center. They are extremely responsive to all of my requests.  They respond the same business day or no longer than 24 hours. I highly recommend Asphalt Enterprises for your project; they will not let you down. “
-Gayle Hoffee, C.B. Richard Ellis, Raleigh


“I just saw Scott to thank him for the wonderful job he and the crew did sealing the alleys in Southern Village. All the guys were so nice and the alleys look beautiful!! Tony and I drove down the dry ones today and we were impressed. I told Scott we hope to have a long relationship with your company and we will be delighted to recommend you to anyone needing asphalt work. Thanks again!”
