Online Guide to Starting a Parking Lot Striping and Sealcoating Business

Parking Lot Business Startup Guide

This site is written and maintained by Steven Cole.  30 years experience in the parking lot striping business. Parking lot striping and sealcoating is a great way to earn extra money either on a full time or part time basis. In some parts of the country you can work year round and in others you would have the winters off. You can generally pick your own hours and because the profit margins are high, you get to keep the majority of what you earn. The initial investment can be low and unlike other businesses, the risks of failure are minimal. Depending on how much marketing you choose to do, you can line up as many or as few jobs as you wish. When my brother and I started our company we were only looking for part time income since we both had other jobs. We earned $3,000 on our first two jobs and were able to pay off all our equipment. After that we were able to split about 80 – 90% of the revenue we brought in. The other 10 – 20% was spent mostly on maintaining our paint inventory. The purpose of this site is to walk you through the steps that you will need to take to start your own parking lot striping company. We will cover subjects like choosing your company name, selecting a business type (sole proprietor, corporation, etc..), finding equipment, marketing your striping business, striping parking lots and much more. I hope this website will help you enjoy the freedom of owning your own business and being your own boss.
