I have reused pavers in the past. Most were in pretty good shape. It's just like pulling from multiple pallets when laying. I calculated a ratio of how many used should go in with the new pavers and they blended nicely. If you blended the old with the new, you would have gotten a more uniform look.

As far as client buying materials? Heck yeah. We have done it a few times. Money is money in my eyes. We installed a 3200 SF pool deck. All materials bought by the client. Clause in contract stating shortages in materials will cost them so much per hour while we wait for material to arrive. We had no problems and No regrets.

Did another job a client started. It was actually a LARGE Arbel patio. Everything was onsite. The people were great to work for. She made us the best cake and chocolate chip cookies any client has ever made us. We had no problems and No regrets.

I'm all about production hours. And net profit. That's all I care about.

Heck yeah.

Absolutely.

We also had the agreement that if anyone asked i didn't do it. You don't even want to know what is under it. I can't say i didn't warn him
SEEEEEE This is were i have a little little problem but it is not mine.....

CUTBETTERTHANYOU!!!!! Do you have a truck with your name on it???
Do people know you and your work??
Branding is the most important thing we have in this business world

Sooooo what im getting at IF YOU WILL NOT PUT A WARRANTY ON THIS IF YOU DO ANY WARRANTY. IM GUESSING THERE WAS CORNERS CUT AND THINGS WERE NOT DONE UP TO SNUFF....... CASH OR ON CASH THAT HAS YOU NAME ALL OVER IT......... THINK YOU MAY GO BACK TO FIX IT FOR MORE MONEY BUT IS THAT A GOOD THING?? ( FIX YOU OWN WORK ) SO IF PEOPLE START TO ASK YOUR BRAND WILL BE BROUGHT IN TO IT GOOD OR BAD.... Just saying i love cash deal but done right!!! Thank for letting me post
