    For a relay? I highly doubt it.

    Hardscaping: I've constantly heard of others getting way underbid on jobs. For some reason it has not effected me untill just recently. 6 of my last 10 estimates nearly had heart failure when they heard my price because of the numbers they had already recieved.
    One guy actually hung up on me after accusing me of trying to steal from him. Oh well.

    Ok,
    if there's nothing wrong with the base, fix the couple of low spots clean the cracks with a pressure washer the resand with poly. No reason to take up the whole thing. Now if the joints are widening then your wrong and you need to reevaluate the project.

    Now that you said this i can see how the guys are able to do the job for under 20 grand. they are not taking it all up, there is no way they are. they must only be taking up enough to do border and washing out the joints, and resanding with poly. only removing interlock from the few spots that are low and fixing those areas.

    i am going to call him and ask him this, because if this is the case then i can get to the same area as the other guys. Thanks for opening my eyes on that.

    Do you wanna sell the people a Volkswagon, or do you wanna sell them a Cadillac?

    Tread lightly on trying to sell someone a Rolls Royce if they can only afford a Cadillac.

    They can afford anything you throw at them, but they don't get rich by spending all of their money.
