So I went to give an estimate last night. 6 townhomes shared driveway, about 3,200 sq ft. at one point I mentioned I would be using a surface cleaner and he immediately told me not to. He was very adamant about it and apparently he’s had bad experiences in the past with surface cleaners leaving “swivel marks”. I assured him I would go slow and make sure there were no marks but if he insisted I would do it with the wand. He ended by saying he just didn’t want swivel marks! He asked me a bit about my equipment (gpm) and mentioned he had some knowledge/experience in the washing business. I came home and emailed him the estimate (a little over 500, this includes 6 walkways that lead up to the front doors of each home). He emailed me saying he liked me and my professionalism a lot, but that I was the highest of 4 bids he got. He got $260, $350, and $467 and wanted to hear my thoughts. Did I come in too high? would any of you guys go out to do that job for $260?? any suggestions in case I do get the job and he insists on me just using the wand?
Its also not a regular driveway, I’ll attach a picture. Never done a driveway like this one before. Was planning on doing the same way I do regular concrete driveways. DS solution, dwell, then surface cleaner. Will this work just fine?
