We do a 2 coat job and charge more. Work holds up longer and we get some and we lose some. You have to believe in what you are doing I started when I was 28 and It was alot of hard work and I'am sure some of the people were a little unsure of me. But we always show up and do a real knock out job and here we are 8 yrs later
I hear you brother.
we send out mailers every year but 90% of my sealing work is by reputation and word of mouth. Not the cheapest but the quality shows and speaks for it's self. I just started another rig that my oldest son is running for residential and was out checking his work Wednesday's, and all the customer were very happy and they finished everything I gave them. Very hard to trust someone to run a sealing rig but if he wants this business he will walk every mile.
