Does anybody offer a power washer service as an extra?? Would this be a good thing to offer or a poor roi

I have thought about it. But would you really have time to do it? Maybe when the season slows down in the winter. Definitely something to think about. I would just do driveways, decks, sidewalks, etc. I think there is to much liability doing houses....breaking windows, destroying siding. It would be hard to break a driveway.:)

I added power washing about 3 years ago, its paid off very well. Start off offering it to your exisiting customers and build from there

We offer this service as well. Quite lucrative. We only do horizontal surfaces (driveways, walkways, decks etc.). As previously mentioned, we don't do houses due to liability issues. I'd suggest offering it if you have the time and equipment. Don't buy cheap "hobby" equipment. Go ahead and spend the extra couple hundred and get good equipment that will last.
Good luck!

I do it as a side & make pretty good. But it is not as consistent as I would like it to be. I really pushed it & very few people do it regularly. I get a lot of work from my Dad's painting biz. MOwing is way more consistent though.

With proper equipment and techniques, the profit margins are huge. Not as consistent as mowing but definitely higher margins.
