If you already have an outdoor basketball court that needs repair, we can have your basketball court looking new and fully functional again.

We offer many services to keep your basketball court looking new and extend the life of your investment. Low areas on a basketball court consists of any area where water accumulates deeper than 1/16". These areas will delay you from using your basketball court after rain. We can prevent standing water from accumulating on your basketball court by patching the areas low lying areas.
There are many elements that can cause discoloration on your basketball court if not taken care of. Leaves, grass, tree sap, mildew and bird droppings can result in staining and peeling paint if it is not power washed. Power washing your basketball court will ensure your paint job look its best and prolongs the longevity of the paint.
For basketball courts that need of extensive repairs, we offer complete overlays with 1.5” – 2” of new asphalt over your existing basketball court, this would give you the appearance of a brand-new basketball court for a fraction of the cost of removing and replacing the entire asphalt basketball court. If your basketball court was resurfaced with new asphalt we would first take down the fence if needed or sections of existing fence to gain access to the basketball court.
Some prep work would take place, typical prep would include cleaning the basketball court by blowing or sweeping off any foreign debris, the next step would be to apply an SS1H asphalt bond coat to the existing asphalt so that the new layer of asphalt could adhere to the existing layer of asphalt. After the SS1H asphalt bond coat was applied a petro-mat mesh product would be cut to size and placed over the cracks to slow down the process of reflective cracking thru the new layer of asphalt.
Once the asphalt layer is applied to the basketball court we would come back and install new net posts depending on the situation. Once the asphalt on your basketball court has cured for 14 days latex paint can be applied to the new asphalt surface. A new asphalt surface requires one coat of acrylic resurfacer, followed by two coats of fortified acrylic colorcoat. The final step is layout the lines for the basketball court, all courts are striped using 100% acrylic paint.
