Belgium Block...

I have a couple questions and would like some opinions on Belgium Block pricing and installation methods...

1. What is the going rate on installing jumbo belgium blocks
(10''-12'' vertical) these days... is it by the foot...? I usually charge by the foot....

2. What methods or techniques are recomended for lengthy installs... (footings, spacing, type of mortar... etc.)

Thanks for help.

We don't have much call for them here, Parks just want walls for grade changes.

A friend of mine installs them for $15 a foot. I've only done it once so I used his pricing and would suggest going higher. That $26 sounds better but I guess it all depends on how fast you are and what your costs are.

Is $26 per linear ft?.....cause I have a job thats 450 linear ft. X $26.00= $11,700......$15/ft x 450 = $6,750.....big difference in price.

A guy in my area of long island gets $11 a foot. He does a great job but I know he is very low.

$11 is way to cheap...way too much labor involved....$15- 18 is a fair price.
