In 1972 I began teaching at a local Portland area high school
in the business education department. That same year I started
Ware-Ever Striping Co. in order to keep busy during the summer
months and make a few extra dollars. I always wanted to teach
and coach but I also enjoyed doing outdoor construction. It
was a great match. When school was out in June, the weather
was right for striping parking lots. Then in September when
the weather began to change, I headed back to the classroom
and the soccer field.
As our clientele increased, so did our services. We expanded
to include seal coating, crack filling,line removal and patching.
Being involved with high school sports, I began working with
the maintenance of athletic facilities. Ware-Ever began to
restripe and repair running tracks and tennis courts. Being
in education, I had a soft spot for school budgets and always
gave the schools a very "competitive" price. We continue
that practice today. We have probably retriped more tracks
in the Portland area than any other company.
After leaving the teaching profession, we were able to greatly
improve our "off" season service. With the introduction
of new sealers, we can extend the season into the spring and
I am proud to say that Ware-Ever is one of the oldest pavement
maintenance companies in Portland. My philosophy from day one
has always been to provide the best service and the greatest
value for the dollar. After 34 years, these two principles
still hold true. People who are responsible for spending their
client's money know that their reputation is always held in
high regard when they work with Ware-Ever. In that time period
we have worked on everything from your neighbor's driveway
to sealing/striping a 30 acre parking area for the Port of
Portland. If you check out our reference page, you will see
that we have amassed a very impressive list of clients over
the years and it continues to grow. Hopefully you will consider
adding your name to that list.
We have the equipment and personnel to get the job done the
right way, on time and on budget. Please give us a call if
you have any questions regarding pavement maintenance concerns.
After 34 years, I feel confident that I can answer your questions
with a clear and honest response.
