                                            Can I do it Myself ?


Many people seal-coat their own asphalt. There are some things you may want to consider before you decide if this is something you want to do or get a professional  to handle it for you.

  • How big of a job is it?  Many people underestimate the time and effort involved in this task.  Even a small driveway (10'x100') will take the average home owner 2 hours to round up all the necessary materials and supplies  Another 4-5 hours in the hot sun to do the job.

  • Can a home owner do good job? Absolutely,  as good of a job as professional ? Absolutely Not ! All thing being equal, there is no substitute for experience.  Unless you can get your hands on industrial grade materials things are not really equal.                        

  • Will you save money by doing it yourself ?  It comes down to how much is your time is worth? Using our example from above (10'x110') you will have about $60.00 in materials and supplies. I will do this job with 2 coats of premium pavement protection for $138.00,  you save $58.23. Divide that  $58.23 by the minimum 6 hours you invested. Your day off  paid you $9.70 per hour. The break down on this example is on the  "do it yourself" page.

  • If you are still interested in doing the job your self, this year will be offering a complete "do-it-yourself kit" for residential use only! More information about that in our June publication.
