    Why not continue to charge by the hour?

    I was working for a company when i charged by the hour.. Now i'm on my own, my uncle is letting me use his pressure washer and hoses. Now I just need to buy gas, acid etc..

    Figure out how many hours it will take you, how much you reasonably want to clear per hour, and add in your chemical/gas/etc cost. The total is your price to her.
