    Hey everyone, I am in the process of trying to bid a 120 sq ft flagstone patio.
    This will be the first time I have bid such a project, paver's are normally what we do. The customer has all the flagstone purchased already so I am just bidding out the labor on installing the patio. The customer does not want mortared joints we will be doing sand joints. Just looking for what you guys think I should bid this out at and what the going rate is per sq ft.

    Thanks

    if its bluestone (the nice factory cut edges and smooth all sides) you can maybe go as low as $10 if your pattern doesn't have any cuts or very few, really its how much you want to make and what they are willing to pay.

    if its irregular flagstone you'll want to go maybe around $18, your going to spend a lot of time chipping and fitting.

    don't forget to charge enough to cover your base and bedding materials and the stabilizing sand for the grout joints (its not mortar, just keeps ants and weeds out)

    Get as much money as possible!!! It will take you longer then pavers even if you are using dimesional! Irregular will take ALOT longer then dimensional, so price accordingly.

    Here is a progress pic of a wet layed irregular job we have going on now.

    Ahh now I see he he my eyes were playing tricks on me it looked like a dusty ball of mortar with straps around it. Couldn't figure out why you would need that :)

    This is what the project looks like now. The old patio I have to remove and dispose of the bring the grade down so the flagstone can be installed. This picture will give you guys a better idea of what I am up against.
