Sealcoating is insanely hard to make decent money on. You really need to be able to throw a whole package out there to make ends meat. We run with a blacktop crew, sealcoating,and stripe crew. Even then your going to be way undercut on large facilities unless you throw alot of money on expensive machines all around. The way we do it as well is goofy hours and mainly weekend work which means its tough to find decent workers. Are competition is either traveling companies with large propelled spray setups or two man pickup setups. Its very tough to hold a middle ground with sealcoating.
