man sandblasting

Sandblasting is a versatile and highly valued technique used across a range of industries. Surfaces are prepared through cleaning, smoothing or etching, by blasting them with abrasive materials. It has a range of applications and is a highly efficient way to achieve the desired results.

Sandblasting costs in the UK can vary widely based on several factors, including the type of project, the material being treated, the size and complexity of the job, as well as the location of the company carrying out the work.

What factors influence sandblasting cost?

A range of factors will impact on the overall cost you will pay for any sandblasting project. These include:

  • Type of project

The nature of the sandblasting project will significantly affect the cost.  For example, a small piece of furniture will typically cost less to sandblast than a large industrial structure. It’s not just the scale of the task that will be taken into consideration. The intricacy of the work, such as detailed restorations when compared to straightforward cleaning, can have a significant impact on the price.

  • Material

Different materials require different approaches and choices of abrasives. Sandblasting metal will involve various techniques and materials compared to sandblasting concrete or wood. The selection of abrasive, and the level of care and attention needed can influence the overall cost.

  • Size & Complexity

Larger projects take more time and resources to complete and lead to higher costs. Complex surfaces with hard to reach areas or intricate designs may also require more time and effort, increasing the price.

  • Location

The location of the service provider and the project site may impact the cost of the sandblasting process. Regional pricing differences do exist, and smaller family-run sandblasting operations may be more cost-effective than larger companies.

How much does sandblasting cost on average?

Sandblasting cost can vary, but here are some general estimates to act as a guideline:

  • Small projects

Sandblasting services for smaller projects such as garden furniture, railings, or small vehicle parts, are usually straightforward, requiring less time and less materials. The cost for these services will typically range from £50 to £150 per item.

  • Medium projects

Sandblasting services for medium-sized projects, such as small industrial equipment or car bodywork, require more extensive preparation and longer working time. As a result, the cost will be higher than for small projects, ranging from £200 to £500 or more.

  • Large projects

Large-scale projects such as large industrial machinery, or extensive structural components can cost anywhere from £500 to several thousand pounds. The exact price will depend on the scope of work, the surface condition, as well as any additional services that might be required, such as priming or painting after sandblasting.
