Hi all, I am new to this forum, bit frustrated with a recent quote, so out searching for info.
Any ideas on typical paving costs to pave a 1.6m perimeter around a rectangular pool. Large format ( 800 X 400 ) granite and want it on a mortar base over concrete base. ( pavers and pool coping $3600 )
All up about 50sm, no steps, pretty standard. ( I would imagine )
To lay the concrete base anywhere from $35-$ 50 per m2
To cement on pool coping $35-$40 per Lineal meter
and to cement on a wet mortar i would charge about $ 80 per m2.
I have used the same size pavers on a recent job, They are a heavy product and nightmare to cut.Laying on concrete and mortar is a slow process, but will give you the best finish.This all helps contribute to cost
Being a natural product it will have variations, and with motar variation will be minimal.
I have laid these on a sand base before and still got a great finish, also to lay on sand should cost around $ 35 - $ 45 Total.
If you were still to put down the concrete base i dont think i would use cracker dust. I would use plasterers sand or white wash it will have a little bit of give in it to get rid of any variations in the paver. The cracker dust dosnt give much.
35-50 for concrete, should be supplied as well.U would only need 80mm plain grey , screeded( no need to float it off) . Depending on your meterage there could be a min charge.
