Ill start by saying that Im usually not one to discuss prices, but Ive been a little stressed out lately with the local hardscape guys prices. I have priced 3 paver driveways this summer and have lost two of them due to the competion bidding these jobs dirt cheap (in my opinion) There are 3 well known co. in my area (besides myself of course) that hardscape and are very well known and good at it. One of them prices work for about the same as I do. the other two who are hardscape only co. are dirt cheap. I met with a client this morning with my bottom bottom dollar price on a Belgard dublin collection paver driveway proposal (approx 3000 sf). We are also doing a complete softscape install for this client as well. Anyway my price for the Drive was $10.50 foot. I knew that the guy was getting prices from these other 3 installers so I priced the job at my lowest price. To make a long story short, I lost the job to $7.00 a foot. The client showed me the other proposals, they where $7, $8 and $11. Can someone please tell me that its not just me and that this is a stupidly low price. Ive been streesed out all day over losing this job, as I really wanted the whole install. This is actually the second drive and the third large job I have lost this season to one of these two guys. What do you all think?
