Power washing is a fast, effective method to clean home exterior surfaces. It will remove stains, organic debris and mildew from vinyl, brick, wood and shingles.
Whether it’s your house or property, pressure washing can immediately improve the appearance of your building.
Power washing is an affordable way to give a house a facelift, without the hassle of remodeling. But many homeowners will never schedule these services since they assume they are too costly or not necessarily worth the price.
Let’s look at the standard cost of professional pressure washing so you won’t be one of those homeowners that doesn’t see the value of this service.
A pressure washing company in Norfolk is going to bill you by the hour or based on the size of the home. Sometimes, a local company may offer flat rates for their jobs. This simplifies their pricing for their customers and themselves, but it is not the norm.
Average rates of pressure washing may vary a little throughout the country, but they should be fairly standardized throughout Norfolk.
This cleaning process works really well on several household surfaces, so we’ll break down the average price of pressure washing by the surface to be cleaned.
The price for homes or residential buildings and small offices or storefronts is between $0.30 and $0.75 per square foot of surface area, with the mean cost being $0.50 per square foot. This will put the average price around $225 for a smaller home, although this price can easily be doubled based on the size of your house.
Wood is softer than vinyl, brick and other home building materials, so you need to be very careful not to dig into it. This is a case where enlisting a professional for deck cleaning or for patio cleaning is less risky than trying to do the project yourself. Prepare to pay between $100 and $250 for most decks and patios in Norfolk.
Did you know your home’s roof can be pressure washed? Like with wood, it requires special knowledge and techniques to protect fragile shingles – although some roofing materials, like tin, can withstand high pressure washing techniques. The Norfolk pressure washing service you choose will have different accessories for their equipment to work on the type of roof on your house. Pressure washing a roof runs somewhere between $250 and $600.
Vinyl and wood fencing often develop mildew over time, and mud and dirt stick to these surfaces. For $150 to $300, you can have your fences pressure washed so they look brand new.
Concrete is very easy to pressure wash, and it is a very quick way to remove stains. You can pay as little as $0.08 per square foot for pressure washing a driveway, or up to $0.35 for power washing sidewalks with concrete detergent.
AsLike we said, the price of pressure washing can vary based on a lot of different factors. Here are some of the factors that can impact the price of your pressure washing service:
Before you hire a company or Norfolk pressure washing service, ask around to see which service neighbors and friends or family may have used in the past. You’ll usually get very good recommendations.
From there, it’s essential to get estimates from 2-3 of your top picks. Too many more than that can be too much information, but you don’t want to depend on only one company for an honest estimate.
When you get the final estimates, one company may be priced by the hour and another one by the job. Sometimes this can be complicated and hard to really compare, so it’s necessary to ask questions like “How long do you think the project will take?” This question will help to compare estimates that are priced using different factors.
Don’t forget that price is only one factor in your decision. You could see a wide range of prices in the estimates that you get, but it isn’t often recommended to choose the lowest priced service. Look deeper to discover if this is a sales price or if the company prices its services lower for another reason.
Once you have weighed the price against other factors like reputation and guarantees, you can then make an educated decision about the best company to handle your pressure washing services.
