    ok, I am haveing a small growing pain, I am prepping an estimate for my first paver patio job. Te scope is the patio is already there, it must be ripped aprt and rebuilt, it will measure 13' by 19' by 4 inches deep. I have myself and one helper. do you think it can be done in 7 hours?

    So you are ripping up the whole thing. Are you reusing the base there and tamping it or putting new stuff in.

    Are you laying the pavers in sand after you compacted the base?

    I think it might take a little longer than 7 hrs. IMO maybe closer to 9.

    Did you pull up the pavers in the area that has sunk to see what the cause of it was. When you say 7 hours are you talking about 7 hours per guy or in total. What did they use to fill the joints regular sand or poly sand.

    The cause was the neighbor draining their pool and washing it, 7 hours total, 14 man hours (2 guys) and they originally didnt sweep nothing between the pavers

    wont know If I get it till about 5/10. thats when the judge makes the ruling on the damamges
