Ceiling Tile

For a great way to cover unattractive ceilings, adding ceiling tiles to any room can completely enhance the décor. An elegant ceiling is the perfect finishing touch for any room.

First, we measure and mark the surface according to blueprints and drawings. Then, we nail or screw moldings to the wall to support and seal the joint between the ceiling tile and the wall. Finally, we mount the tile, either by applying a cement adhesive to the back of the tile and then pressing the tile into place, or by nailing, screwing, stapling, or wire-tying the lath directly to the structural framework.

Floor Tile

Fire Proofing

The threat of a fire in a home or any building is one of the biggest concerns for building owners. One of the best defenses in preventing the ignition or spread of a fire is to fireproof your building. A building can be fireproofed either in the building phase or in the renovation phase. Fireproofing increases security for the structure, reduces liability and provides superior air-tight thermal protection.

A & DS uses the Spray-on Fireproofing method. This technique involves the spraying of various products onto construction materials in order to improve their resistance to fire while decreasing their chances of weakening, burning or melting under extreme heat. These fireproofing materials can be applied directly to steel beams, roof and floor assemblies, columns, concrete services, and joists in both industrial and commercial environments. The amount of spray-on fireproofing needed will depend on the weight, size and type of structure to which it will be applied.

We are careful to protect your surrounding landscape. Finally, we remove all excess fill and debris.A traditional easy-to-maintain asphalt driveway is durable, practical and reasonable in cost.
