I have a customer that wants their deck cleaned and sealed with a transparent sealer. I plan on cleaning with Sodium Pecarbonate followed with Oxalic acid. Rinsed with pressure washer. Then one coat of SuperDeck Exterior Clear Sealer. Also cleaning the patio furniture.
Deck is 750 s.f. plus the handrail and balusters. I'm curious, what prices you guys would charge for this?

Its been a few years since I cleaned decks but we'd get about $500 for a deck that size but that was using simple green, quick scrub with a deck brush and power wash. Not sure what the cost of those chems are going to look like.

A stain is what I would recommend, as paint and sealers films will start to peal back in a year or two. on older wood it starts to peal sooner

Staining wood with a water sealer last much longer and easier to maintain. On older dry wood like I see in photo, you'll need double coting as the wood sucks that stuff up if dry.

This was one of those bids that the customer is always right. They told me what they wanted and how they wanted it, nothing different and I gave them a price. I sold it for $1,100.00.
I'll have less than $150.00 in chems and sealer. Thanks to everyone for their input!
