Brick paving installation costs an average of $30/m2. Depending on the project requirements, rates can sometimes drop to around $25/m3.
Factors that have an impact on how much your job will cost
Costs vary widely when it comes to brick paving projects. This is because a number of factors usually come into play to determine the final cost of your job. These factors can include:
Most brick paving installers charge per-square metre rates. This means that the size of your project has a huge impact on the total cost of the job. In this regard, paving a garden path will likely be cheaper than paving an entire driveway. There are some tradies who provide quotes based on hourly rates so just choose the one that best works for you.
Depending on your preference, you can choose among several different types of brick such as clay bricks, sand lime bricks, and concrete bricks. Clay bricks are one of the most commonly used because they’affordable and require little maintenance. Sand lime bricks are more expensive than their clay counterparts, and they’re generally used for driveway paving.
Brick paving is more labour-intensive than something like concrete paving because brick is harder to cut and install. Expect your chosen tradie to factor this into his quote, along with other things that can contribute to a project’s complexity. These can include ease or difficulty of access and the amount of prep work required such as excavation and ground levelling.
In order to ensure the best possible workmanship, hire only licensed and insured brick paving installers. You can easily find them on ServiceSeeking.com.au.
