Paver Patio Estimate

Wrapping up a Paver Patio Estimate. please keep in mind this is my first paver patio installed with my new company, I have worked for another hardscape company for the past 6 years so installation experience is not an issue. The patio to be installed is 10'x20'. With all materials and labor I came I acme out with a price of $3,780.00. Just want to make sure this price was reasonable for My company and the homeowner. I have talked to other hardscape companies that some buddies own and they preferred to go by a derived square foot price instead of calculating labor hours. Any input and advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

$19 per square as long as it is fairly easy access sounds good too me.

Yes, it is a rectangle and easy access. That was my price for job completion.

One of the first things I would like to comment on is that your profile doesn't say where you are from. Not that one can't lie, I realize that. I'm a veteran contractor. Do I want to sit here and type for 40 minutes only to help my competition that is 4 miles down the road??

When asking for help - please be willing to share who you are, where you're from etc.

Never unit price a job as Dependable posted. never.

You can click on my user name which will take you into my profile.

And from there you can do a search. I have written extensively on how to price work, why, why not, and yadda yadda yadda. Do a search via my user name and you'll find everything and anything you need to know. And it's accurate information derived from experience and wisdom, not theory.

best of luck!

I price by the sq ft not the job. $19 a sq is pretty reasonable so looks like your in the right ballpark

Poor information you're spouting out Barnabas.

$19 / sf is very reasonable if the job is like 2,000 square feet.

$19 / sf is pathetic if the job 100 square feet and behind a middle unit town home.

$1900 for a 100 SF. Seems fair. Should take a half day. $38000 for a driveway is a bit high.

not in my area. middle unit townhouses are right in that range. wider open easier access jobs / higher Sqft are in the 15-17 range.

Market drives the prices
