    I love it when suppliers tell you what you should charge, 'cause they know so much about your overhead and expenses!!
    Had a stone supplier ask me one time "What are you at per square?" He looked at me like I was nuts when I told him I figure the price on time and expenses and said "Well, I guess you could do it that way".
    Keep in mind that the suppliers job is to move his product, not necessarily to make you a profit.
    As with pavers or anything else you have to make sure you can cover your expenses and pay yourself. The only use for sq. ft. price is to pre-qualify leads and to make sure you are not pricing yourself out of the market.

    To buy the material or install? Because the stone we use cost $5.00 to $7.50 sqft just for the stone.
