    Depends - type of washing done, power washer your using and any chemicals? We have had request for reatining walls and we think not a problem, then look at them and you would need a lift to reach that high or that far out. Depends upon situation I guess. Charge your normal rate and then x amount for washer, ladder, etc.

    We did a a pool for a lady a while back and we had to rent 40ft alum. planking to cross her pool cuz she wanted the cover cleaned. That was interesting!

    Hi JTerrell,

    Here is a quote from this post.

    "As far as pricing ,I bid this job at .30 per sq ft on the driveway and 1.50per linear ft for a 3 rail split rail fence. The customer did not hesitate by saying "when can you do it?" The whole job took me 11 hours actual on the job. I had $110 in sealant and about 5 gallons of gas (used their water). I profitted just under $800 ,pretty good for 11 hours don't you think."
