Started working with a paving crew at 16 years old. Mike started from the bottom as a shovel man and worked his way up the paving ladder through hard work and determination. By the time he was 18 he was operations manager and acting foreman of a 10-man paving crew. Mike is a master equipment operator and can operate all paving equipment with skill and precision. He has mastered: paving machine, roller operator, skid steer, excavator, milling machine, and other heavy equipment. Mike then had the opportunity to learn how to estimate. The years of infield operating experience gave him the knowledge he needed to estimate jobs and be a master of “thinking out of the box” to deliver the best options for a customer. He has handled some of the most complicated and demanding paving projects in North Carolina. Within the last few years Mike has been requested by other paving companies to train and work with their crews to help them with “best practices” of a paving project. He has a focus and drive to deliver the highest quality paving products to customers at the fairest price with a family atmosphere. “We will treat your property like it is ours”! He can offer customers unique value engineered designs protecting their investments and longevity of their product.
