AE Commercial Property Maintenance 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 AE Commercial Property Maintenance.”

“You (AE Commercial Property Maintenance) 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 AE Commercial Property Maintenance 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 AE Commercial Property Maintenance for any of their excellent services.”

Parking Lot Sweeping

Your parking lot is a facility that you offer to better serve your clients or to attract new ones. Before clients see your office, store or facility, learn about your services, or become aware of your products, the first thing they notice is your parking lot. A clean parking lot is the first impression potential clients will see, which is why you need a quality power sweeping company.

Retail Sweeping

Maintaining clean surroundings is a necessity, not just inside the building, but outside as well which should be serviced by an experienced parking lot sweeping service. Having a clean parking lot and maintaining it will lessen the damage your property suffers over time. Cleanliness is a key to keeping your property looking fresh and new.

Construction Sweeping

A reliable sweeping service is a service provider that will schedule quality cleaning when it is least disruptive to your work schedules. We understand the laws surrounding construction track out and EPA guidelines for property development. Contact us and let us help keep your Construction Project clean and on schedule.

Street Sweeping

Maintaining a proper sweeping schedule helps your community remain clean, and therefore increases pride and property values. Whether you are a homeowner, property manager, or HOA board member, our property maintenance company understands that it is important to you that your community parking areas and streets remain clean and in compliance with all requirements.

Specialized Sweeping

For the safety of your employees and to make sure you keep up with code requirements, it is important to keep a regular cleaning and sweeping schedule in your warehouse and after special events on your property. We can help prepare your personalized schedule for sweeps to meet your specific needs.

Asphalt Maintenance

We perform all types of asphalt repairs, including; Potholes, Sinkholes, Cracked Areas, Upheaval and more. One of the distinguishing factors between our company and the competition is that we offer lower minimum job prices. As a result, you and your clients can have those small areas repaired quickly, without any hassle, and for a very reasonable price.

Crack Filling

Asphalt is designed to catch the water and drain into designated areas. Standing water will cause surface deterioration and will allow water to flow and penetrate the underlayment. If left unattended, open cracks will begin to compromise the pavement surface and eventually lead to the need for more costly repairs.

Seal Coating

Quality seal coating protects the asphalt by stopping the oxidation process, and it protects your financial investment. New asphalt pavement has a deep black color, but the oxidation process begins immediately which, over time, causes the pavement to develop a light gray color. This oxidation process eats deep into the pavement and the small aggregate material, such as sand and gravel, is released. Consequently, the pavement area becomes rough and deteriorated.

Parking Lot Striping

Your parking lot is not complete until cars know where to park, and that requires line striping. We provide all the types of striping required in a parking lot, including line striping, direction arrows, curb painting, custom stencils, and signage. The paint can be latex or oil, depending on the job. We utilize Graco LineLazer™ striping technology, which provides a more precise control of the application and reduces pulsation and line variation.

Parking Lot Striping

A clean building, sidewalk, or dumpster pad is not a luxury; these are necessities for the proper upkeep of your property. Over time, due to trash, dirt, and debris, these areas of your property become dirty and stained. Additionally, vandalism often leaves unsightly marks on your building that seems impossible to remove, and only invite more graffiti artists to add their mark.
