Average Cost Of Professional Sandblasting

Like with many restoration and renovation jobs, it is hard to pin down the exact number for the price of professional sandblasting. The tools used, the safety measures taken and the urgency of completion are different for every project, and all of these factors can influence the total price. If you want a rough estimate to start budgeting, however, plan for the cost of professional sandblasting to be anywhere from $916 to $1,198.

How Sandblasting Works

Before you hire a professional to start sandblasting the exterior of your home, make sure that you fully understand how the process works. Essentially, sandblasting is like pressure washing with the addition of sand particles. The spray of water contains fine pieces of sand, steel or coconut shell, and it can strip paint from stucco or even remove plaster. 

Taking Permits & Neighbors Into Account

Sandblasting may be quick, but it is such an intensive method that permits are often required before work can begin. Make sure to build in time and budget for the cost of this additional requirement. If your home is located close to another structure, you will also need to let your neighbors know about your plans so that they can avoid the area or move their vehicles to avoid any potential damage.

Additional Costs That Can Influence The Total Price

Sandblasting without any protective gear can cause respiratory problems in those who tackle the job on a regular basis, so the cost of alternative air supply and full gear is something that will raise your project's expense. In addition, damage can occasionally occur from the sandblasting, and you may need to repaint some of the exterior or even replace an entire window after the project has been completed.
