Start Your Sealcoating Business Now

We've helped people just like you to start their own sealcoating business


Darrell Daley, City Sealers:

In addition to excellent equipment and reasonable prices, Asphalt Kingdom goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service.

You’re not just buying equipment when you deal with Asphalt Kingdom, you’re buying unlimited customer support and expertise, and that is truly invaluable! Asphalt Kingdom has been there for me from the start and I am 100% confident that they will continue to be there for me when I need them.


Jamie Fratus, Owner of Jamie's Sealcoating in Coventry, RI:

"I will admit, I was nervous buying this system because of the price difference and buying something that I could only see on the computer but I called the toll free number and spoke directly with the founder of Asphaltkingdom.com and he had all the answers I was looking for about the sealcoating business and what products to use.

I thought it over and went ahead and took a shot and purchased the AK110 Pro Spray System. I also purchased a 10 gallon melter applicator, 10 boxes of hot pour crack filler, four 55 gallon drums of sealcoat, line striper, and a case of yellow striping paint.

When I sealcoated my first driveway with the AK110 Pro system I charged $675.00 and it took me an hour and a half. You can make great money with this machine.

I recommend AsphaltKingdom.com to anyone who wants to start a sealcoating business, residential or commercial."


Justin Cole, Cole Paving:

"It all started 5 years ago. I was lying in bed night after night sick of working in my family tire business. One of these nights I happened to scroll across a video of Judd Burdon talking about how much money I could make sealcoating.

At first I was thinking, "It’s just another one of those posts that pop up and tell you what you want to hear"... but it wasn’t.

I first started watching all of Judd's videos over and over and over again with my wife wondering if what he was saying could be true.

Fast forward to today and here I am to tell you how happy I am all because of those videos.

I've been on my own for 5 years now and am running my own paving crew. I'm super happy to be apart of this group and this brotherhood, but most of all I am thankful for Judd Burdon and my wife for giving me the motivation to keep this all going.

It's not too bad for a 30 year old guy to go from having no idea how this all works to running his own successful business.

I'd also like to thank Brian Hess for teaching more then I could ever imagine. Thanks, guys!"


My sealcoating business story

JudsonBurdonHi, I’m Judd Burdon, founder of Asphalt Kingdom.

Some of the fastest-growing business owners in our network started right where you did.

And over the next few sections of this page, I’ll show you everything that I can do to help you get your dream asphalt maintenance business up and running.

Not only that, but my support for you won’t end when you walk away from this page. My team and I at Asphalt Kingdom will guide you further to help you get your business to where you want it to be.

Now one of the things I want to tell you straight away is that at no point in time do we ever leave you in the fog. 

I built Asphalt Kingdom to be your lighthouse. We are here to shine the path on the lonely road of entrepreneurship, so that instead of walking alone, you’ll have a team of people moving forward with you. 

What business can you start with a few thousand dollars?

Years ago, my parents gave me a few thousand dollars for my birthday. But instead of buying the guitar that I wanted, I decided to use that money to start a business.

I asked myself: what business can I start with a few thousand dollars?

This led me to sealcoating. And from sealcoating, I moved up to what is now Asphalt Kingdom.

Today, I’m able to live the life I want, on my own terms. I can provide for my family, become my sons’ hero, my wife’s partner, my parents’ pride, and help other guys get a start in the industry. 

I didn’t need fancy degrees or complicated studies to help me get here. Just my willingness to get started, get my hands dirty, and stick to my guns.

Is sealcoating the right business for you?


It may be you don't have the same opportunities as everyone else.

Maybe you don't have the time to spend years in college getting in debt, or you’re dreaming of paving commercial parking lots with your own hands, using your blood, sweat, and tears for years.

Maybe you have always wanted to start your own asphalt maintenance business...

… Or you’ve worked a few jobs in the industry and realized you can make a business out of this, too....

… Maybe you’re even a student, a teacher, an employee, or a retiree, and you’re looking for other opportunities to make more income…

… Or you are simply far more interested in real, under-the-sun work.

Whatever your reasons, if you’re here looking for a quick, honest business you can start for a few thousand dollars, then you are in the right place.

Join a multibillion-dollar industry, even if you don’t have a fancy degree

Our goal is to make sure that you're connected with the knowledge, the resources, and the right people so that you can literally have wind underneath your wings to take off. 

We now have a community of thousands of successful sealcoaters and pavers who, like us, want to pass on the torch to other men who want to make something out of their lives as well.

If we can help people succeed in this business, then we will succeed more. We win when you win. That’s why our goal is to move on this mission together.

What if I don’t know anything about sealcoating?

If you’ve asked yourself this question, my answer for you is this...

You don’t have to go through this business journey alone.

It sucks being alone trying to figure all this stuff out.

That’s why when you start a business using Asphalt Kingdom products, we’ll be with you every step of the way. 

We’re the only ones who will give you hands-on support and mentorship from real business owners and professionals in the asphalt industry who went through the same journey as you.

If you’re feeling alone, overwhelmed, or intimidated, we’ll help clear the path for you. We'll be there at every turn to make sure that things are going right for you.

With us alongside you, you won’t have a problem taking on the highly profitable asphalt industry.

How big is the opportunity in the asphalt industry?

According to the National Pavement Association:

  • Almost 90% of American runways and commercial airports are surfaced with asphalt.
  • Over 90% of America’s parking areas are surfaced with asphalt

Just think about it. 

There are approximately 18 billion tons of asphalt pavement on America’s roads... 

But when you look around your neighborhood, you’ll see aging pavement everywhere. 

And if you just ask your neighbors or the property managers in your town how hard it is for them to quickly book a sealcoater… you’ll realize that there’s just not enough who can cover all of this demand.

Simply put, as long as they are paving driveways and parking lots in America, you will never run out of opportunities in sealcoating.

What other services can you offer with sealcoating?

Your business doesn’t have to stop with just sealcoating. The beauty of this model is that you can add complementary services to make even more revenue for your business.

Crack Sealing

Crack sealing and repair is essential for asphalt maintenance, as it stops damage from getting worse. With hot rubber and a melter applicator, you can make $1/linear foot – in other words, you could make $1 every time you take a step filling cracks.

Pothole Repair

Repair your clients’ potholes with cold patch, hot patch, or an infrared heater. With infrared patching, you can charge $95 per patch and if you can do ten per day, that’s $950! 


Asphalt sealcoating protects your clients’ pavement for 3-4 years against the elements. Professional sealcoaters can earn up to $125 per hour, and possibly even more with commercial projects. 

Line Striping

Painting lines on parking lots is a fantastic way to grow your client base and upsell on your other services. For a typical parking lot (50 spaces), you can make about $1500. 

How long does it take to start earning profits from sealcoating?

Our business packages include enough sealer and crack filler supplies to earn your entire initial investment back. Each package is designed so that it pays for itself with the materials that come with it. Then, when you go to reinvest in new materials, it will all come from fresh profit.


As you grow your business and earn more profits, you'll be able to purchase sealer and crackfiller in bulk. The more supplies you can buy at one time with bulk discounts, the more money you'll be able to keep in your pocket.

Is sealcoating a good business longer term?

As long as there is asphalt in America, sealcoating will be a lucrative business. In fact, the government is planning on more spending this year and the years forward. Include private property owners’ driveways and parking, and you'll be kept busy for a long time to come.

Asphalt services are in demand throughout the year

Hot asphalt patching repairs and hot pour crack filling are services that are in demand throughout the year, wherever you are. Professional contractors know this is an excellent side business to keep income steady, regardless of the season.

Asphalt sealcoating lacks serious competition

Road crews don’t have the time to do the job properly: they get in, fill, and get out. On the other hand, you have the time to do the job the right way, so it’s long-lasting and professional. Once you have the right supplies at hand, everything will go very smoothly with your repair. 

Sealcoating and asphalt maintenance keeps property value high

Maintaining driveways, patios, walkways, parking spaces, etc. will make them last decades longer and eliminate costly asphalt replacement. This also leaves the property’s exterior looking beautiful and well kept, adding significant value.

Properties need regular sealcoating to minimize repair costs

Businesses spend millions of dollars every year to repair asphalt cracks and repair potholes. With asphalt maintenance and sealcoating, you can extend the life of a 3,000 square foot parking lot by 25 to 30 years more and save on repair costs of up to $21k.

Frequently asked questions

What is your refund policy?

Once any equipment and or product is purchased and used there is a strict no return policy. We will service, replace malfunctioning parts and send missing items but in no way shape or form provide a refund once equipment has been purchased and used.


Why do you need professional sealcoating equipment?

You can typically finish a job four times more quickly with better equipment. It not only makes your job easier, it also makes you look more professional. The faster and more precisely you can finish a job, the better your clients perceive you, and the higher you can charge.


Why should I buy your product? How is Asphalt Kingdom better than just getting cheaper equipment and supplies from other shops? 

All our equipment is marked “airport-grade,” which means we meet the high standards needed for airport runways. You may not be able to find airport-grade sealer at your local store, but you can find high-grade asphalt/blacktop sealer on our website.

Additionally, buying from Asphalt Kingdom gives you access to our network of professionals and business owners in the industry. 

The advice you’ll get is from real pros who’ve been in your shoes. Judd, the founder, started sealcoating at just 18. He has since built up a business of his own, and is now sharing his knowledge with other men who want to start their own businesses, as a way of giving back and passing on the torch. 

You’ll also get access to our wealth of guides and assets that you won’t find elsewhere. 

Finally, as one of our successful customers, Don Manzo, had to say: “I could have went to one of the hardware stores and I could have gotten buckets and a squeegee, but I wanted to look professional. I want to give that professional appearance.”


How will I know how much material I need for my sealcoating gig?

As for quantity, you must measure the area where you plan to apply sealant. Simply multiply the length by the width for the square footage.

If you have multiple areas, measure each one individually and add them together. Enter this number, as well as how you plan to apply the sealer, into our sealcoating calculator, and you’ll know exactly how much you’ll need. 

Remember, it’s better to have too much than have to stop and order more before you're finished.

Keep in mind If you have neglected asphalt sealing for many years, you will need to apply it in two thin coats, allowing time to dry in between, so you’ll need to double up on your order.


What if I don't have enough money? What if I can't afford all the equipment?

We have different packages for all levels of business and can customize equipment packages according to what asphalt maintenance services you want to provide. We also have financing available for equipment and supplies. Give us a call at 1-866-399-5562 and we’ll see if we can customize a package that will fit your budget.

SYOB Financing for SYOB products


I don't know anything about sealcoating, how do I get started?

We have helped people start their own asphalt business for over 10 years and are always adding new content – honestly, everything we have would probably keep you busy for a long while.

You can refer to our Youtube materials and free learning materials that come with your Start A Business Package. If you buy one of our packages, you're also eligible for priority support from the Asphalt Kingdom team.


How do I price my services?

If you buy any of our Start A Business packages, we include quotation and invoicing templates that you can use. In our Build Your Own Business Blueprint series, you’ll learn more about how you should price your services. 

You can also submit photos of your job, along with the total square footage and including the total number of linear feet of cracks to be filled. In return one of our sealcoating experts will provide you with recommendations on the proper equipment and the right amount of product to do your job successfully.


How much will I need to spend to get started?

Some of our members started with $200 to $2,000 and built their investments up from there. But our most comprehensive (and thus most popular) packages are between $5,000 to $10,000.


What if I can’t afford to start? 

Many of our customers started using their own small extra savings. Our founder used funds from his birthday gifts while other members started with $2000 and some even as small as $500 to $200, and invested in more equipment as their business grew. 

One of our customers, Lance Phillips, sold the jobs first to get the money to buy the equipment and supplies. 

The most important thing is to get started. Besides, you won’t be alone, because we’ll be with you to help you move forward.


How do I know this is the right opportunity for me?

All our business packages include materials and mentoring that will guide you through the whole process of creating your business, setting it up, getting the equipment you need, plus how to get more clients.


How will I know if this will work out?

We’ve helped many of our members start a business from sealcoating and build them all the way up into full fledged paving businesses that can handle bigger commercial paving contracts.

However, In business, there is always risk. What we can guarantee you is that Judd and Asphalt Kingdom representatives are available for any questions you may have and we’ll be with you every step of the way.


What if I don’t want to continue my business anymore?

If you decide down the road to sell your property, we at Asphalt Kingdom will help you sell your used AK equipment in our equipment center and through our used equipment form on our website.

Place your all-inclusive AK Business in a box package order through our secure online store or call 1-866-399-5562 to place your order.
