5,000 sq ft is pretty huge. I'd think that would take at least 4-5 hours.

Hi btevans01,

Welcome to our forum.

How long are you thinking this would take to pressure wash the sand out?

What about how long to put new sand in?

Barbie sent me an email on this post and said "It's a 2 day 2 man job. 32 hours total. Pavers have to dry before the polymeric can be put down."

What do you have to make an hour? I usally charge 50 - 60 an hour for pressure washing, without any chmcls Other then a sealer. 5k sqft pob aprox. 4 1/2 to 5 hours with sealing the concrete afterwards. i would charge about 200 hope this helps

32 hours? I doubt it. I did about 1500 sq ft the other day in 1.5 hours. And ya, you have to come back for the sand later, but sanding is pretty quick, maybe another 2 hours for 5000 sq ft.
