Seal coat projects take a great deal of planning and careful preparation to ensure that a seal coat job will last for many years. Numerous details must be worked out between the responsible engineer and the contractor.

The engineer must also arrange for the preconstruction meeting, which will be explained in detail in Section 4, Preconstruction Meeting of this chapter.
