That's great for you. I can't wait to find a customer who likes his grass cut 15 times a week. It would be great for my bottom line. Unfortunately it won't be good for thiers. Watch youself. Customers will remember the BS contractors that will do anything to make a buck.

P.S. Most of the time, they feel they are smarter than you!

Thumbs up

We have several customers that get it done more than once a season.

Like I said, they want their drive looking good when all the fancy cars roll up for their garden parties.

and the price to just pressure wash is not that much less.

I don't understand what you mean. Call me stupid but where do you live? My customers look at thier driveways or parking lots 2 years later and would not even think for a second it would look better to have it sealed again. What are you doing wrong!!??? Not from a $$$$$$$$$$$$ stand point obviously!

Its the gloss they want. A high gloss.

The lady that I did 12 times gets her Bentley detailed on the same day and parks it exactly on the sunniest spot on her drive.

me neither but i got to admit it looks kinda cool when her drive has that fresh wet look gloss and her Bentley is sitting on it after being waxed.

Not the way i'd spend my $$$ but what the hell...you only live once.

12 layers of sealer in 1 season? I sure hope so it was a shitty sealer that worn off every 2 weeks, otherwise you will be destroying that driveway with 12 layers of sealer, eventually alligator cracking can start forming if you put in to much sealer.

When customers calls me to seal his driveway that I did last year for a nice "fresh" look, I tell him no, not before the 2nd year period.

And your putting a sealer that's the same price as power washing the driveway? Over here power washing is 1/3 the price of sealing lol.
