Has anyone successfully added painting as a service to their pressure washing business? It seems like half of the washing jobs we do could use some type of painting whether it is for a building, flat surface or line striping.
This would be mostly for commercial, but I am sure it would work for residential too. I wonder what kind of hourly rates a painter can get in comparison to a pressure washer? I assume the painters would be lower, but they would not have all the overhead associated with the equipment.
This could really help offer the customer a full service restoration rather than just a cleaning. So many times I have to tell customers their stuff is just oxidized, or too far gone for us to wash it and get a good result.
We successfully got out of the painting business about 10 years ago! lol The money was great but reliable labor was tough in my area. I only hired experienced guys and paid them really well, but reliability was an issue at times. Overall, I decided managing the cleaning biz was simpler and dropped the painting over time.
