It’s smart to get to know the other sandblasters in your area. Keep in mind, not everyone likes taking on the same type of jobs. If there’s a local guy in your area who is only interested in certain jobs, that means there are other industries who need you. He will be quick to refer you to the jobs he doesn’t want and vice versa. Blasting can go hand in hand with other services. Most of the time, contractors can’t do their part of the job if there is a coating on the surface they are trying to work with.
The added resistance to rust and corrosion that is provided by powder coatings allow the surfaces of steel beams, appliances, outdoor furniture, and similarly exposed material to stay clean and protected for much longer. There is a wide range of reasons as to why using powder coating may be the right option for the material you are looking to cover. Getting on a sub-contractor list for construction companies is the best way to get repeat business and land bigger jobs that pay well. Once you build relationships with people in the industry, you’ll be surprised at how many jobs keep coming in.
