    Hey guys, what are the going rates for installing concrete patio stones?
    I have a customer that wants a mortared porch-32 sqft, raised patio 120-sqft, and walkway 120 sqft. So lets say 280 sqft. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
    thanks

    $5 SF



    .....here, do this:

    material and all other direct cost for the job + overhead + profit = price......see, easy

    yup....really! I kid you not!

    Just like tthomas said...
    Lay it out on paper. total up all material, overhead, profit, and dont forget to figure in labor. Try and estimate your man hours required and add it in. Any equipment rental? then divide and get the totals for each application per sq ft...if thats what your looking to get..a sq ft price.

    That's like saying "Whats the price for a car?". There are so many variables that the price could be dramatically different between models.
