As owner-operator of BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT LLC, based in Nashua, NH, Jack Child knows a little something about mending worn-out, cracked driveways and giving them a black-as-night new coating. Yet the ongoing challenge he’s faced as BLACK DAWG begins its third year of operation has been mending the public’s perception of the asphalt maintenance industry.
"Many new entrants to this business simply run to the hardware store, buy a squeegee and bucket of sealer and, voila, they’re in the asphalt maintenance business. Consequently there are a lot of less than reputable folks who see a way to make a fast buck and take advantage of customers with inferior work and even worse service," said Child. "The mantra of BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT is to earn the trust of our customers with first-rate customer service (real people answer the phone) and state-of-the-art sealcoating technologies and we put that philosophy to work every single day."
