$10k sounds like an expensive "ballpark" -- a little more than $9/sf! You may be able to have it done more cheaply.


Where are you? Is the proposed installation area level? What size are the pavers? Is the ground already prepared and cleared? What kind of soil do you have (generally; e.g., sandy, clay, friable, rocky, etc.)? Will you have paths or steps or water features or outdoor grill/kitchen, or is it just a flat 1100 SF? In other words, it would help if you could add more details about the general layout, and maybe a picture if you have one.


Remember that you have to live with the results. If you're physically able, it would be to your advantage to get involved with the project on a detailed level. Yes, I'm probably the kind of client who drives contractors crazy. However, the BEST contractors don't mind, as long as you make decisions in advance, instead of asking them to re-do something because you weren't present and changed your mind when you saw the result. If a contractor tells you they don't want you around during the installation, find another contractor. It's your money. [But do try to be polite. ;-)]

OK. Now I get it. You're doing over your parking spaces. This is the manufacturer's website: http://www.grinnellpavers.com/ I note that the pavers are made to "lock" into each other and that the company has specialized installation techniques. That says to me that it's an expensive product and that you are probably being steered toward using only the installers who are familiar with the "technique." This sort of marketing always sends up a huge red flag for me.



Does the $10,000 quote include the pavers AND the installation? Is there a warranty; what does it include? This sounds like a ton of money for a Parking Lot. What percentage of the value of the property does $10k represent? As I said before, sounds like $9+/SF. How does that compare with other materials [installed]?
