Removal of Pavement Markings
Removal of Pavement Markings is necessary for many various different reasons and is accomplished both by our Hydro blasters and Mechanical Grinders.
Traffic Switches: As construction phasing approaches, old lines need to be removed so that new lines can be easily identified.
Line Refreshing: After so many restriping projects occur on the same road, the lines build up and eventually are either scraped off by snowplows or passing traffic, or the initial layer finally gives and the lines attached to it go with it. We suggest a remove and replace program every 3 restriping's.
Kolbe Striping has 3 different water blasters at its disposal for any removal needs that may arise. Our newest, a Stripe Hog, is equipped to remove striping and curing compound at a high speed, while cleaning the surface of the roadway while it removes.
Our other hydro blasters are equipped to remove striping and curing compound economically and efficiently.
Our fleet of grinding equipment allows us to respond to any size job, any time and meet the needs of our Clients.
2 Large grinding trucks, and several smaller trucks/tractors as well as hand units are well maintained and serviced so that they are ready to go when needed.
