I was at a potential clients house the other day giving him an estimate on spreading topsoil when he asked me if I could give him a price on doing a simple 10' x 10' Hollandstone patio. I told him I would write him up an estimate when I got home and mail it to him in a couple days. He then asked me to just give him a rough idea of what it would cost. I told him around $1000.00. He said can't you do any better than that? I said I wasn't sure on exact pricing because I didn't have my paver pricelist with me plus I can't just figure material quantities off the top of my head. When I went home and sat down and actually wrote everything up, I discovered I am going have to price the job at $1100 to $1150 in order to make a profit($600.00 for labor and $500 to $550 for material cost. Is my labor charge overpriced, just right, or should I be charging more? I figure the job will take me 8hrs. Maybe the guy is either a cheapskate or just has no idea how much paver patios cost. Any help would be appreciated.
