A customer that had me do an asphalt repair job wants me to re-do a crushed stone driveway. The driveway is currently overgrown and will have to be leveled out with a skidsteer. The driveway is a total of approx. 1500sq feet. I will have to rent a skidsteer for approx 200 dollars. THe material calculator gave me the following amounts: 1" = 4.6 yds or 6.9 tons @ $25 per ton= $172.50 1.5"= 6.9yds or 10.35 tons @ $25= $258.75 2"= 9.3 yds or 13.95 tons @ $25 = $348.75 2.5" = 11.6 yds or 17.4 tons @$25= $435.00 the stone varies between $16 and $23 dollars depending on what kind the customer wants. The logistics of everything i can do but the actuall estimating has been the hard part for me. Im estimating that is gonna take me 4-6 hours to complete the project.. (sounds like a long time but since i underestimated grossly the last time i thought id be more liberal) so I stuck with 6 hours @ $ 50 an hour and estimated the skidsteer at 275 dollars. What depth do I need to go with ? Im assuming that 2.5 is too deep. Also below is a breakdown of what I would charge the customer ( I had to put it in excel becuase it wouldnt come out right on the page). Tell me what you think. Any help would be greatly appreciated . Also any thoughts on using weed fabric?
