How much for a fence

I have a lawn service and have been doing a little powerwashing. There seems to be a lot of info about how much to charge for houses and drive ways, but how much do you charge for a fence. I was thinking about 1.00 per lin. foot. Also is it a good idea to use soap products or just the pressure of the power washer to do the job. Any help would be great.

Yes and No. I have one that has been stained and one that has not. I won't be doing the staining, the person wants to do it himself.

How much do you charge and were do you get the two dif chem's for fences. I used lowes stuff on my fence to see how it would work but it did do very good.

you can use a chlorine based solution for the fence that hasn't been stained but if it has stain on it then you have to use a stripper followed by a brightener . . . check you PM
