    scroll down this page to find a useful power washing calculator. Otherwise, I have no idea. I don't do any power washing myself.

    well, it depends on how bad the house was, what kind of siding, how long its been since its been washed, how hard it was to get to, how big the driveway is, how long its been since the driveway has been done, how big the paths were, if there was oil spots or not, if there is a bunch of trees hanging over the drive making the mildew worse, how long you think it took, and last what area your in..... someone across the country is gonna have a way different price then you charge...

    Michigan.

    all of it was easy. well. was easy till i had issues with the power washer. but the actual spraying was pretty easy. in fact one side only needed spot treatment. just wasn't dirty.
