    I have a residential brick that has two sides of the house covered in boston ivy. One side is 40' long. The other side is 50' long. It's a two story. The ivy is old and real thick. Was wondering how many man hours it would take to get it all removed. We never deal with this kind of stuff, but we are forced too, to get a the large install project. Any guesses?

    That depends on how clean they expect the house to be. You may have to use a stiff brush to remove all of those little tendrils from the brick. I have never removed that much but my guess would be a full day for two people to do a thorough job.

    Ya, I was figuring around 10 hours per man. I didn't know if I was coming in to high though.
