If you have the right tools, you can charge about $1 or so per sq ft and make money. If you have a hydroscrubber and a good pressure washer you can finish 1000 sq ft in less than two hours. Sherwin Williams has two new water repellents that are super easy to use and work tremendously well. These products are a 40% siliane and a 7% siloxane. You can use them on any kind of masonry - concrete, brick, stone, stucco, block. No asphalt. They don't change the appearance of the surface either. You can apply this with brushes, rollers, airless sprayer and even a pump sprayer. They wont mar glass or flasing either. You just spray on and leave it. easy. The silane is much stronger but it costs more, contains high VOCs, and can hurt plants. The siloxane has zero VOCs and is "green friendly"
