Power Washing
 
I am thinking about adding this to our offerings. Those of you that do power washing, what do you charge for the various things to power wash? What can be power washed? Thanks in advance!

Fisher 07-10-2011 07:16 PM

Almost everything can be power washed, the trick is knowing how much pressure to use on what. I find that the pressure alone isn't effective in most cases hot water and or the right chemicals will be what makes the difference.

(I did one time have a call to come quote a ob for blasting the concrete off of the steel of a bridge, Sorry, I don't have the $85K 50,000psi washer to do that)

Price vary greatly regionally, I've seen prices from .06 to 1.50 per square foot. It depends a lot on the substrate. I've also seen many that would complain over $65 per 1k and I feel that is really cheap, school kid with no insurance cheap.

You will want to add insurance for it as well, pressure washing is in a class of it's own with insurance and is double my landscape, and construction insurance rates.

Visit http://www.pressurenet.net/rates.asp it may be very informative just don't mention your a landscaper there or you may lose your credibility.
