    Viper where did you find these businesses that sell sealcoat..i did a google search and have found nothing in grand rapids area that sells sealcoating..i just hired a local yokel to seal my driveway, and hot tar the cracks,so i could watch the process.. as far as equipment it will either be a equipt 550 or a sr unit. i have heard great reviews about both..just got back from a tour overseas..so this spring i will start a local business in ionia mich.. any info from anyone would be great..thanks brian

    The places I talked to I had to get 4000 gallons at a time. I never did buy any or sealed any this year. They are hoping next year to do the properties. Everyone I talked to pretty much had the rights for that brand....so they were acaully seal coaters themseleves. Never really found any good leads yet. Still looking. Let me know if you find anything

    What did you find out?
     
  5. We have a supplier near us for all of the sealing products here in Nashville Tn. I am not sure of the gallon price but I believe you have to buy 5 gallons at a time.
