I didnt know where to put this. Ive never done any business with pressure washing. 1 of my customers wants me to give her a price on doing her house and her patio. Can you guys tell me how I do an estimate on pressure washing?

"Ive never done any business with pressure washing"

Does this mean you do not have a PW.
Tell her--" Mrs. Valued customer. I am a professional at lawncare and landscape maintenance. The best advice I can give you is to call a professional that will wash you home without doing any damage to it and that has the proper insurance coverage to do that type of work."

Yes I have a PW. Ive used it many time's, Just not on a customer's home. I know how to use it. I know how close I can get without doing any damage. Im including this in my business this time. I have a PW, why not make some $$ with it?

OK in that case just what you need to make a profit per hour times how long it will take you.

One of our commericial strip centers asked us today to bid on pressure washing the concrete and "scraping the gum" off monthly. They want one contractor to handle everything including trash pick-up daily. Thought I would help bump this along to see if there are any pressure washing lawn cutters.

It's extra income for me and get a lot of calls during the season for it, If you are doing driveways or brick pavers you can offer a concrete sealer application for an extra charge

i do some in the off season, it's a pretty easy upsale. once you have gotten to know your clients, you know which ones will be receptive. i pretty much stick to concrete drives and walkways though. i have done a few houses, but would rather be in and out.

I do a few pressure washing jobs a year whenever I get the free time or a customer wants it. Its fairly easy work and if you already have a pressure washer, it is good money. I have made quite a bit this year going to an upscale subdivision that constantly has construction trucks going in and out. So far, I had 5 people on 1 street that simply want the dust and crud sprayed off their houses that the construction has caused. Pressure washing is either a take it or leave it service for most people: Some people want their driveways and decks done once a year and some people could never pay $125 to have their driveway look brand new again

Will a $600 size on wheel get me into the business? We need to do about a 300 ft x 10 ft concrete area all around a shopping complex. I guess what is important is the pressure?
