If you’d rather save a few more dollars and complete the manual job of pressure washing yourself, then hiring a pressure washer is going to be your best option.
You can rent a pressure washer for less money than it would cost to hire a maintenance company to pressure wash your property for you, and you can enjoy the satisfaction of having improved the look of your yard or home by yourself. Pressure washing is not a labor-intensive job, so most people should be capable of completing this job themselves.
Lowe’s offers lots of different tools for rent, including a range of pressure washers. The type of pressure washer you need, and the amount of time you need it for, will be the deciding factors in how much the rental is going to cost you.
Rental pressure washers at Lowe’s start at just $6 an hour for a minimum period of 4 hours, so you can complete quite an extensive task during that time for a really reasonable cost. By comparison, you can expect to pay a professional around $80 per hour to come and pressure wash your driveway, so that’s a significant saving.
