Hey all, I have hired some masons to lay a 30' wall/3' tall and 15 steps (about 2400 modular brick) made of clay brick and mortar. I am supplying all the materials, pouring the footers, del. sand, etc. They just have to show up and lay brick. We had a verbal agreement on a price of 3250.00 minus materials. The materials are about 1600.00. Leaving them 1650.00 which gives them 687.5 per 1000 brick, they went behind my back and told the homeowner they needed more money. They told him they needed at least 3250.00 for just labor which is about 1326.00 per a 1000 brick. I am not sure what to do about this problem, does anyone have any suggestions?
