    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Hi
    lads could do with a second opinion on a price for pressure washing this area 50ft by 50ft, just to check I am on the ball with this one as first outing with the pressure washer.
    It's green as well Was just going to go over once to get think off, then Ubik with sprayer 5 minutes and rinse off. I recond about half a days graft ?
    Any recommendations or help would be appreciated.

    With a rotary that would take me maybe 2 hours tops including setting up and breaking down and packing everything away, super easy slabs like that, dream job.

    £120.

    I was thinking 4 hours including set up as its first time pressure washing. Your a pro though and do it all the time, you now what first jobs are like. Thanks for the advice much appreciated.

    You need to be happy with the price, but use this as a way to gain experience as well, but big flat areas of slabs without pointing are pretty much the easiest jobs you will ever get pressure washing :)

    That area looks bigger than the pics 50m by 50 m is big area
    Also looks like will need coning off and doing before public about
    Water supply?
    On area like that and looking like its a company I'd be charging 450

    Ha well still large area
    Would you really quote 120?
    After fuel,machine costs and the inconvenience of public and tax be left with barely anything?
    May be I'm overpriced but even at 50ft by 50ft I'd be looking £350
