    Never price by the sq ft even if they ask. How much excavation? How far is the site from the driveway? Will equipment be used or unaccesable? Is the walk straight or does it have alot of cuts? (don't forget extra pavers for cuts) These questions and more is why you do not price by the sq ft.

    I agree with Mark. We do have a square foot price that we figure just for the pavers and the sand bed. On top of this we have to add for excavation and a good base that can vary from site to site depending on existing conditions. We add for edge restraints and spikes, travel time, ease or lack there of of access, # of people on a crew depending on the size of the job, do we need equipment and for how long, how detailed is the job (ie. patterns w/ multi colored pavers, circle paks, inlays etc etc). The list goes on. Smaller jobs might cost you more per square foot just because of the time involved in getting the job ready, you still need the equipment etc etc. You need to figure man hours and equipment hours for each phase of your job and go from there. Good luck
