its going to depend on your location, but...

a hosue wash...single story $1 per foot
second story $2

add a little extra due to gas prices...

driveway....depdns on the size and what your doing to it.
any chems?
oil stains?

are you using hot or cold water?

It is an excell washer and it is 2600psi. There are a few stains on the cement and I will be using cold water. I am not sure about the chemicals yet. Most likely a non abrasive non toxic soap of some kind.

Wanted to let you guys know I got the job today. It was 198 ft around two story house plus, the inside of a 20 by 30 ft grage floor @ .10 cents a sq ft. I charged $450 and got the job. It will be about only 4 to 5 hours of work. Yeah!
Good deal or what?
