Start Risk-Free Part-Time
In this work climate, any job you have is worth holding on to! Why not start driveway sealing part-time on your days off? This way you don't have to have hundreds of customers to be successful - you can build slowly and carefully at your own pace. This also saves you from having to hire staff up front, and lets you do the job, sell yourself, and your quality.
Tip: Take before-and-after pictures to use on your website, flyers, and other advertising. Seeing is believing for customers.
Teach Yourself The How To's
Before you spend a single dime on starting your own asphalt business learn how to do it right! As the first step, learn how to do driveway sealing, and then move on to things like crack repair and line striping, things that a full-service pavement maintenance company offers.
We have the complete series of FREE guides here.
Be Your Own Best Example
The old saying "the shoemaker's children go without shoes" is the best example of bad marketing. Anyone who sees your home and sees grey, tired-looking asphalt, certainly isn't going to want you to do their driveway sealing. Get out there and practice on your own driveway and showcase that you know how. Plus, you'll get much needed experience that can only come with doing the actual work.
Equipment You Need For Your Asphalt Business
This is very much a matter of how much you want to invest in your future pavement maintenance company. It would be ridiculous to suggest you start with a broom and a squeegee—that's way too basic for starting an asphalt business (although it works well for a home-owner). Nor do we force our business in a box package on someone who only wants to start up part-time. Our asphalt experts will work with your pavement maintenance company plans to get the right equipment for you.
Profit Margins Are Easy To Figure Out
No one should get into anything without knowing exactly what kind of profit can be made. Our profit calculator for driveway sealing shows you exactly what the cost versus profit will net you in a month, just by entering the number of hours you're willing to invest.
