    I'm a QS in Right of Way in Colorado, and I've been doing bareground/under asphalt spraying for 6 years now, as an employee. I've decided I might like to try it myself. I have experience setting up and running everything myself, I have just never been involved in the money aspect. I've done some business homework, and I know pretty much what my employer/s charge, but they are/were always involved with other things as well. I'd like to hear if it's a worthwhile venture on it's own. The better money *seems* to be in the commercial side of the business like spraying parking lots, road sides, cracks, and the under asphalt thing. I guess I could expand and do other things along with it like some pre-emergent bed and border type stuff. Does everyone plow in the winter or make enough to ride through? Any thoughts are appreciated.
