    Who is doing the painting in your area now? Are they a company that is busy all of the time and maybe travelling a lot to maximize production?

    How many parking lots do you see getting painted each year in your area? Is it possible that a street sweeping or asphault company has a better "in" to get this work? Are you going to be able to compete with good service and low overhead or are you going to be paying for more equipment that will spend most of its life sitting idle?

    as far as i know nobody in my area does this type of work i have seen one company doing it at a wal-mart and they are from out of state most of the parking lots that i have seen are dull and faded and need this service. as for the paving companys they dont fool with this they rather spend their time making roads or paving huge parking lots. i am looking into it some more before i jump into it.
