    100 bucks! Seriously do a search and you'll get a wide range of answers. You have to see what it cost to run your business and go from there. SQFT pricing will just give you headaches.

    Agreed! With sq. ft. pricing somebody loses, sometimes you, sometimes the owner. Look at each job individually and figure the price.

    Don't charge per SF!!!!!! Estimate the job, every job is different!! We don't sell pavers, we sell labor hours.

    We don't charge by the square foot but after all is said in done after the job is completed we can be anywhere from as low as 12-13 per square up towards 25 per square.

    I'd lose my shorts if I decided to simply charge by the square. To many variables.

    the current rate for going broke slowly is 12 per square. :)

    Seriously if everyone charged the same amount this wouldnt be a very good business.
