Since 1967, several Hollywood movies have been filmed in and around Versailles, including Secretariat and Dreamer. The choice of Versailles for these two movies about racehorses seems especially fitting — the town is surrounded by thoroughbred farms and is a major center for the breeding and training of racehorses as well as pleasure horses. The horse farms attract buyers, breeders and fans from all over the country, and since Versailles is also the county seat, property owners endeavor to keep paved surfaces looking their best. Common services required in Versailles, KY include asphalt paving, concrete repairs, asphalt overlays, crack sealing, pavement markings, curb repairs, parking lot striping, asphalt sealcoating and ADA upgrades.
Versailles, KY – The History
The land on which Versailles was founded in 1792 belonged to Hezekiah Briscoe, a minor who had inherited the property from the estate of his parents. His guardian was a Revolutionary War veteran named Marquis Calmes, a family friend of the Marquis de Lafayette, the French aristocrat who had assisted the Americans in the war. Calmes chose the town’s name to honor Lafayette.
Throughout its history, Versailles has remained a relatively small town, and the residents take pride in qualities associated with small-town living, including a low crime rate, friendly people, a strong work ethic and family values. As of 2010, Versailles was home to approximately 8,500 people; most of the growth occurred after 1960.
Installing, Maintaining and Repairing Pavement in Versailles
Property owners in Versailles require a wide variety of paving services to construct new pavements and repair existing ones. Four categories of services are requested the most often.
• Sealcoating: Sealcoating is a cost-effective way to ensure a long life for asphalt pavement. Sealcoating guards against elements that can lead to the premature deterioration of asphalt pavement, including UV rays and automotive fluids. Sealcoating is commonly included in the routine maintenance of parking lots; it refreshes the color to enhance the property’s curb appeal and provides an attractive background for pavement markings.

• Asphalt Paving: This category is rather broad, encompassing a variety of applications and procedures. It includes the construction of new streets, roads and parking lots as well as the replacement of existing pavements. Milling, asphalt overlays and speed bumps are also considered members of the paving category. See more about Asphalt Paving
• Concrete Services: Concrete is typically used for the construction of sidewalks, wheelchair ramps, curbs, walkways and parking lots. Repairs normally consist of repairing cracks or patching damaged areas. See more about Concrete Services
• Asphalt Repairs: Asphalt contractors are frequently asked to repair cracks in asphalt pavement. Left untreated, cracks pose a serious risk to the longevity of the pavement. Water can infiltrate under the pavement and damage the base, leading to longer and wider cracks, potholes, sunken pavement and alligator cracking. Although these conditions can often be repaired, the removal of the existing pavement may be necessary to repair the base, resulting in costly repairs. In some cases, the extent of the damage can be so severe that it is more cost-effective to replace the entire pavement. See more about Asphalt Repair
