The pressure wash item template has different elements all of which will quote based on square feet. The main difference between the choices are the pressure used and if any additive such as detergent is used.
In general the pressure washing included in this template does NOT include material in the assembly price. If there is a need to add specific detergents to the assembly that can easily be done.
The items here will all require a square foot measurement and will calculate the needed labor hours needed.
Adding items to the estimate
In a project when the pressure wash item template is selected there will be a list of pre-loaded items that will quote based on a production rate to yield a number of hours. In this template there are general pressure wash definitions and conditions that can be added to your estimate for informational purposes and do not carry a dollar value.
In this example the definitions and conditions are both being included and 3500 SQ FT will have a wash with detergent. This area has calculated 8.75 hours of labor for the work order.
The assembly in this case has a production rate of 400 square feet per hour. These production ratescan be adjusted to fit the specific project. Too many adjustments to this rate is an indication that there may need to be changes / additions made directly to the line items
Adding each of the individual pressure wash components will total the labor and material components in each assembly into a total hours and gallons of each paint type for the project.
Using Output Single Line Item or Not
At the top right hand corner of the item template there is a box to output single line item or not. There have been many arguments both ways and the best practice will be based on preferences on what the final proposal will look like. Ultimately the use of this template and combination of items used will determine if the output single line item is the best case for specific estimates.
