Boat dock cleaning

First wood boat dock. Customer wants it cleaned and re stained. Do I need to completely remove all the old stain? I know there are issues when working over the water. The job is about 1000 sq ft and have no idea what to charge for cleaning and re staining, any thoughts?



You will want to find out the laws on cleaning and staining over water. I have already passed on a few of these since I wasn’t sure on the laws. If this were regular strip and stain I would be around $1800-$2400 depending on the level of stripping involved. Good Luck!
