    Hi,
    Can anyone give me a rough estimate as to how much a 10x12 paver patio would cost? How about just a cement patio in the same size?? Also, the big question, does anyone recommend a good company that can do the job in Northern NJ?? I need to do this asap & I'm at a loss as to who to use.
    Thanks!

    Yep. You and everyone else.

    10x12 - pavers - around $3000.00

    Try pattern cut stone. Seems cheaper these days, plus no edging or polymeric. My price -full color bluestone- $2000

    Not for good bluestone. Our stuff is not more than 1/8" thickness variation over the 2 worst pieces. Material cost is almost 3 times higher. We edge ours also. Minimal labor savings. Base is the same.

    Mia328, where in NJ are you. We handle Sussex and some of Morris county. As far as ASAP, any contractor worth hiring will require some time to schedule and get permits. The ground is too wet to do anything for a little while anyways.

    Feel free to send me an email if you want

    no poly stonedust? why? no edging? why?

    I have never seen an instance where a natural stone could be less than a concrete paver. I hope you where kidding.

    www.icpi.org search for a local installer at least you will know he should understand what he is doing.

    Dont need it, deffinately dont need it and I pay 3-4 bucks a sq ft for 2 inch thick bluestone. Not sure but I think pavers generaly run a little more, dont use 'em here though. Why doyou hope I am kidding?

    because horizontal creep is not exclusive to concrete pavers which is why edging should be used. and in my opinion stonedust swept joints are not a good practice.

    SnapEdge makes a restraint FOR FLAGSTONE.

    Id say it "can be used"! But, "Should be used" sorry. good base work, no worries. I can kind of see it if your using 3/4 inch, 2 sq ft pieces. I really dont go any smaller than 2 inch thick pieces that weigh about the same as myself.

    3/4 of nat stone around here is irregular pattern anyway
