I worked on three concrete projects and two fence project with Munson and I am an extremely satisfied customer.


Munson is a great company! I worked on three concrete projects and two fence project with Munson and I am an extremely satisfied customer. The first project was removing and replacing our narrow sidewalks with wider sidewalks. The second project was replacing a section of our concrete floor that had sunk and the third was sinking our pallet wrapper into the ground and building a concrete frame to support it. The fencing projects one was exterior and one interior for a tool crib. I would highly recommend Munson for large and small projects.

Munson has come up with creative and cost effective solutions that met our needs.

To whom it may concern:

I am pleased to offer a letter of recommendation for Munson's concrete crew.  They have completed many projects at our Milwaukee facilities over the past four years.  Safety and security at our facility is of the utmost importance considering the business that we are in.  Regardless of the size of the project, their commitment to a safe and successful project has been quite evident through their excellent communication bot with the customer, the City of Milwaukee, and the other contractors involved in the projects.

The projects that Munson has completed for Hydrite have varied from as simple as striping our parking lots to  as large and complex as a security fencing upgrade.  The security upgrade included doubling the size of our main approach from the street so two semi trucks could access our drive at the same time along with the installation of three access controlled gates with exit sensors.  All of this work was accomplished with no interruption to our normal operations.

In addition to the more standard projects, as listed above, I have even had projects that were not sure how to accomplish what was desired and Munson has come up with creative and cost effective solutions that met our needs.

We will certainly contact Munson when we have future asphalt work.

Brian:

You guys did a great job. Both the owner of the property and our leasing agents have commented on how nice the lot and building look since you seal-coated and striped the lot. We will certainly contact Munson when we have future asphalt work. Please extend our thanks to the crew for their hard work.

I found Munson to be extremely responsive and cooperative in working with our busy production schedules

To whom it may concern:

I am pleased to offer a letter of recommendation for Rob Fetherston of Munson Inc. for the concrete, asphalt, and security fence work that they have completed for over 30 years for RockTenn at 1900 West Cornell St, Milwaukee, WI.

In the past three years while I was Plant Manager, I found Munson to be extremely responsive and cooperative in working with our busy production schedules to complete the job with the least amount of disruption to our operations.

Projects ranged in size from very small, such as adding a new gate to our parking lot, to very large, such as leveling and resurfacing our employee parking lot. Jobs were performed efficiently, on schedule, and safely.

Recommendations for Late Fall Outdoor Tennis Court Maintenance

Cracked tennis court, Tennis court repair, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Wisconsin

Recommendations for Late Fall Outdoor Tennis Court Maintenance

Implementation of an ongoing program of routine and preventative maintenance is key to getting the best investment from your tennis court(s).   Our experience since 1955 confirms the primary cause of outdoor tennis court damage is the result of the failure of tennis court owners and tennis facility personnel to remove all dirt and debris (leaves, pine needles and pine cones, paper and plastic bags, grass clippings, fast-food packaging, sticks, and other organic and inorganic materials) from their courts in late fall.

Organic debris such as weeds, leaves, and topsoil, and inorganic debris like paper, pebbles, sand, or plastic, if left on your court for the duration of the winter, will trap moisture between the debris and your court, causing premature failure of your outdoor court color coating (which is highly susceptible to damage from extended exposure to trapped moisture) and requiring court re-coloring.

Poor late fall maintenance practices negatively impact the player experience the following spring, affecting court aesthetics, player visibility and safety, and the pace of play.  Key recommendations for late fall outdoor tennis court maintenance follow:

  • Remove all debris and dirt from the court.
  • Remove nets and store them in a dry, rodent-resistant place (mice love nesting in tennis nets and court windscreens).
  • Tag windscreen locations and inspect, clean, and store the windscreens in a dry, rodent-resistant place.
  • Remove net posts and store.
  • Cover the post-hole sleeves with sleeve caps to protect against debris and moisture infiltration during winter (Munson has in stock if needed @ $45/pair).
  • Fill cracks to minimize opportunities for water entering and expanding the crack during cycles of freezing and thawing.  Don’t use driveway filler or blacktop hot-pour pavement repair materials to fill or seal the cracks (employing the services of a tennis court construction professional will ensure the proper crack filling material is used and the cracks are cleaned, prepared, and filled correctly).

Don’t minimize the importance of bullet point three above.  Strong fall winds can create sail-like resistance on attached windscreens, resulting in early and costly windscreen failure.  More costly still: High fall winds blowing against left-in-place windscreens create significant force and are a key reason for structural damage to tennis court fencing.

For clay courts, we recommend placing a court cover over the court in late fall to minimize the amount of clay loss.  The cover should remain in place until the start of the 2018 outdoor season.  [But never cover a color-coated hard (asphalt or concrete) court, as doing so increase the chances of moisture damage to your court color-coating system.]

First Measurable Snowfall … and Other Cold-Weather Considerations

The first measurable snowfall in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Illinois often comes in late fall, sometimes before Halloween.  If you look to extend the outdoor season beyond the first measurable snowfall, use only a soft-nylon or hair-type broom for snow removal.  Hard-bristle brooms can damage your court’s textured color surface, creating overly fast, inconsistent ball bounce.  Do not use snow shovels or mechanical snow removal equipment on your tennis court and never flood your court in winter for use as an ice rink.

Ice and snow build-up can cause windscreen fabric to deteriorate quickly limiting windscreen service life.  Saturated windscreens can freeze quickly and contribute to fence failures during winter storms or high winds.  As noted above, the cost to tag windscreen locations and inspect, clean, and store windscreens is minimal compared to replacing windscreens or undertaking fence repair or replacement.

News and Notes
:
We hope you and/or the players and participants who use your tennis or track facilities had a safe and enjoyable outdoor season in 2018 and wish you/them continued success in 2019.  The season was challenging for players and installers alike in the area due to the record rainfall amounts in spring and fall.

Late fall is a good time to contact the Tennis & Track Division of Munson, Inc. regarding estimates for 2019 court or track maintenance, repair, renovation, or reconstruction work. Contacting us today helps ensure your court or track project needs will be at the top of our schedule as the construction season breaks next spring.  The 2019 schedule is already beginning to fill!

In addition to court and track maintenance, repair, and reconstruction, our Track & Tennis Division also excels at helping homeowners, school districts, municipalities, tennis clubs, community groups, condo associations, universities, and other public, private, and institutional organizations undertake new tennis court or track construction projects including providing services in the concept, feasibility study, design, and construction phases.  Tapping into our expertise early in the concept phase helps you get the best from your tennis court or track construction investment and often results in the lowest total ownership costs – initial installation, annual operating expenses, and ongoing maintenance and repair expenses.

Quality construction engineers the quality of tennis players’ and track participants’ experiences.  Put our expertise in pavement, fencing, and sport facility construction project management to work on your next track or tennis court project.  Call or email Rob Fetherston (see contact information below).

Seal coating in cold weather

sealcoatiing, Milwaukee, Milwaukee sealcoating, seal coating

Most of the sealcoatings used are water-based.  Either based on refined tar or asphalt Emulsion.  You could expect 60 to 70% of the sealcoating being applied to be water.  In order for seal coating to dry all of the water needs to be released from its top layer to the bottom layers.  As it dries a film will appear over the top layer and it will become more and more difficult for the water to escape.  This is why we never step on freshly sealed asphalt even when it looks dry.  Even a small bit of moisture in the bottom layers left to freeze can cause disbonding and peeling and will likely fail prematurely.  Even if your days are warm, an overnight temperature that is below freezing is all that is needed to cause permanent damage.
