Question DetailsAsked on 10/19/2014

Price of $700 to install 44 sq feet of stacked stone on fireplace wall. Is that too much? This is just for labor.

Don't know if this makes a's El Dorado stacked stone and we've already paid for the stone and materials for installation. It will be to the ceiling which is 8 feet but won't be the entire wall...just around the fireplace and around the bottom of a small hearth.

Here is a prior similar question that might be of help -

If veneer, I would expect something around $7-10/SF labor/misc if you are providing all significant materials and being put up with mastic or thinset. If true stacked full stones, then I would say probably in the $10-15/SF range.

You say $700 just for labor - I presume you mean labor and all tools, and you don't say if you provide waterbarrier, wire mesh, mesh nails, cement, mortar, the wood 9presumably) to reinforce the subflooring to carry this weight, etc - they might be contributing to this $700 too ?

Does not sound out of whack to me because I wouldnormally expectthis to cost about $700-1500 for the full job including materials, and for 8 foot height you are talking several working days, because you cannot safely place 8 feet in one day without risk of slumping - typically not more than about 3-4 feet in height per day for random stone - on the higher side for flat slab stone, less for rounded.
