I was recently approached by a customer who wanted me to give him a quote on washing his daughter’s home that he would be paying for. He also stated that he needs rust removal on his personal driveway but wants to see the results on his daughter’s home first. This is my first official quote to give and, admittedly, I am somewhat “intimidated” on how to price such a large home with this much work involved. I would have certainly preferred to get my feet wet on something smaller but I have never been one to turn away a chance to earn money.
The home is listed on realty websites as 2500sqft and an approximate value of roughly $450,000. There is obvious algae and other growth on nearly every vinyl surface and smaller amounts of growth on the brick surfaces. The father also mentioned that he wants the mailbox and outdoor fireplace cleaned and that they will be replacing all of the flagstone in the backyard very soon and will have me do the driveway once that is complete. I have attached pictures below to help anyone who may be willing to offer sound advice. As it stands now, I am in the $700-800 range for the house wash including the mailbox and outdoor fireplace. I am also figuring about $200 for the driveway, sidewalk, and front porch area. I am figuring about 4 hours for myself and the wife as my ground-lady. My equipment is an 8 @ 3500 Pressure Pro and I do have 12.5% SH and ball valve, DS injector, etc. Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you.
I have more pictures if you guys need more but I think these should give a pretty decent idea of the size and amount of work involved.
