    Hey Guys,
    what I should charge this guy to do brick pavers? He has four pallets of pavers and the slag sand but im not sure what to chage him. i would have to rent everything to do the job though tool wise. Im not sure what the sq ft is yet i still havent bid the job and would like to know what im doing when i do. this is my first paver job. what about a per hour rate? Thank you guys.

    You should take some measurements and calculate how long it will take, what you will need before you start thinking about a quote. Will you have to excavate? Will you have laborers?
