I do not know if this topic has been covered. I did a search and nothing relevant came back. I am looking for feedback for Sub Contractor Pricing in relation to Hardscaping. If I am backed up and have to sub out a job, what are the "normal" charges? I do not square foot price my jobs, but if I sub out, should I set a standard square foot price? For example if I have a flat grade 500 square foot paver patio, I will supply everything, all the sub's crew has to do is show up and install, should it be priced for say $4-5 a square foot for labor? Is this too high/low? We can do the job in 3 days with three guys... is $650 a day reasonable for subs with a crew of three? I do not want to price it by the day, because what if he shows up with 1 guy and takes a week. What is your experience in pay scales for subs? Do you have them come out and look over the property and they set a labor price?
