i'm new to the power washing side of the business but have cut grass commercially (both residential & commercial lawns) for a few years now.... so i know there's a time issue in the green industry and i know how to estimate my time for cutting grass and doing hardscaping jobs but since i'm new to the power washing side, i'm questionable on how long a job will take me. is there a way to figure out how much sq. feet you can cover in an hr, both pressure washing and sealing? :help:

We charge by the Hour. Ladder work (if we take it) $10 extra per hour. It's a nice add on service with minimum investment. Good Luck!

ladder work $10 extra an hour.... what bout for using an jon boat to do docks (underneath decking)? i own an jon boat, so i wouldn't have to worry bout renting 1... i'm sure ppl would charge extra to have to use an boat... so whats the going rate you'de charge a customer to use 1?
