Cost of Pressure Washing Driveways, Garages, and Pathways
When it comes to pressure washing driveways, garage floors, and pathways the cost of services ranges from $0.08 to $0.45 per square foot. If the cement is extra dirty or has a lot of residue build-up, it may need to be scrubbed and bleached beforehand. This increases the cost from $0.50 to $1.50 depending on the company.
Some companies offer flat rate prices for driveways, garage floors, and pathways which typically range from $100 to $200 depending on the size of the job.
Cost of Pressure Washing Decks, Patios, and Fences
Deck, patio, and fence pressure washing prices range from $120 to $260 on average or $0.25 to $0.55 per square foot. Pressure washing handrails, staircases, and the underbelly of your deck costs between $0.50 and $3.50 per square foot with an average price $400.
The cost of these services is dependent on the materials used. A deck or patio made from wood will cost more to pressure wash, stain, and seal than one made from concrete. Washing wood costs $0.35 per square foot whereas concrete ranges from as low as $0.08 to as high as $0.40 per square foot.
It’s also worth noting that pressure washing wood removes its stain. When budgeting, be sure to incorporate the cost of staining and sealing so your deck looks as good as new.
