    Pricing a driveway clean in sq ft to compare with a quote for off the head.
    I have a driveway to clean measurements = 16ft / 32ft. side walk, block paving + 30ft / 10 ft. driveway block paving ive come up with 30x10 = 300sq ft.
    16x32 = 512 sq ft
    = 812 sq ft
    now would I price up this way by multiplying 812sq ft by the price companys charge by £ 2 / £3 per sq ft.
    if I did this would work out at £2.50p x 812sq ft = £2030 I wouldn't dream of charging someone £2030 for a 4 hour job. or have I got sq ft wrong.

    do I measure the lengh in metres rather than feet then x width in feet 9.753metres x 16 = 94sqft = 32ft x 16 ft.

    or do you multiply both in metres then x your price example £2.50 x 20sq metre = £50 :Image13:

    headache over, ive sorted pricing out, my measurements above add up to 80m2 x by what price per metre to charge.
    roughly would anyone know how much, or how many bags of kiln sand I would be best getting if he wants resanding for 80sm I would be able to give him a quote for resanding as well.
    what is basicly the average price per sqm for block pave washing. I need one for washing only, and one for resanding the same area cleaned

    if you charge £5 sqm for this job @ 80 sqm the quote would be £400 if I said this quote I know what there answer will be HOW MUCH, this is getting to be a common catch phrase up here in the north east. to get the job I charged £100 just for the power washing, should take me 3-4 hours. hopefully.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]So johnny you charge £1.25 sqm then which doesn't take into account approx £15 worth of pressure washer fuel or travel time etc for that size job [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]However If you are happy with that then that's all what counts.... [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]I personally would charge more myself but the price would also reflect type/condition of surfaces which need cleaning, any drainage issues & overheads/expenses.[/SIZE]
