Heat Rising in Arizona

Time to think about those seals!

Nova Seals and Shelters

Summer time is here and with the heat rising in Arizona, its time to look at repairing and or replacing any damaged dock seals and shelters.

Not only will you reap benefits in terms of increasing energy efficiency and reducing insect infestation, but proper maintenance of your building presents a more professional corporate image.

Please contact Adrian King with any questions or quotes for seals and shelters.
