  • Industry Standards

    Just curious if anyone else has ever put any thoughts into developing a set of industry standards. It seems as if there are so many variables in the way things are done across the industry that it has allowed a growth of individuals who seem to not care as much about doing things correctly as much as they do about the quick buck. Maybe standards and practices could help cull the herd. I’d like to know everyone’s thoughts on the subject

    Yes! This topic has actually been heavily on my mind the last few months. I like to say the sealcoat industry is like the wild wild west! Some people do whatever they want and nobody holds any of them accountable. I hate what it’s doing to our industry. I have been working with our locale state asphalt association with other local sealcoat manufactures on this very subject. Hopefully we have some answers and solutions soon, the main thing I believe we all can do is educate educate educate property managers, public work departments, school districts and state facility departments. I would love some feedback on this from everyone on this form. I believe this is the most important topic we are facing in our industry I believe this should be a collaborated group effort from the professionals in the industry.

      This document is something I have been handing out to property owners that I have visited this year. The idea is for them to hand it out to contractors and have them fill it out and turn it in with there proposal. Hopefully this helps property owners make an educated decision while comparing each proposal. Job Specific Worksheet.pdf

        Excellent BartFreeman. I think this has been a topic in lots of our minds lately. A brainstorming session on getting this type of education out to the masses may be in order. Clearly those who aren’t interested in following a set of standards or doing good for the industry will never attend events such as the NPE or World of Asphalt but maybe more consumer education is the thing to look at

              That’s one item in the discussion bank. I think at some point that could be on the agenda our focus now is getting good valuable information and quality content for not only the veterans of the industry but for new guys interested in learning as well.

                Why does it seem so many I’m the industry get offended and have such a negative attitude toward standards?
