Most homeowners pay between $8 and $25 for installing pavers. Excluding equipment, labor, cement, and other fees, here’s a quick rundown of the costs of each.
The cost varies based on the brick type, labor, and area covered. A typical 300 sq. ft. paver ratio could cost you around $2,500 to $7,500. For other area measurements, please refer below:
Apart from the brick type and the covered area, the following could either drastically affect your expenses:
Brick paver professionals usually charge $4 to $11 per square foot for labor. So, for a 300 sq. ft. patio, expect to spend between $1,200 and $3,300.
Contractors could also charge you per hour around $50 to $80. The same area takes around 35 to 40 hours to complete.
Determine how many pavers of your choice could fit a square foot. Then, multiple that number by the square footage. Provide an additional 10% to 20% for defects and breakage/ faults.
With this, you’d also be able to calculate the total material cost.
Some brick variations - clay brick - require extra maintenance attention. If not supervised, their quality could deteriorate due to exposure to ultraviolet rays and moisture.
Simple yet crucial maintenance practices include washing the brick paver once or twice a year. Use a pressure washer for effective cleaning. Moreover, remove the dirt and weeds between the bricks. After washing, seal the bricks to add an extra layer of protection from flaking.
Sealing and resealing costs about $50, if DIY, or $150 to $300, if done by a professional.
