I am not in the biz, but I assume the guy that quoted $1,200 has the right equipment, ie sprayer etc. I was going to do my own 9k sq ft drive way, but if I bought the sealer in buckets, and did it my self, I would have only saved about 2-300 dollars. They tell me you use a lot more material with the bucket and brush method. If you are a bucket and brush guy, you may want to stick to the smaller drive ways
