Factors affecting concrete paving costs
When planning a concrete paving project, it’s best that you hire a qualified business to do the job. It might seem more expensive at the beginning, but it’s actually much more cost-effective because you get to avoid dealing with tradies who produce subpar work.
Aside from that, concrete paving experts can also properly inform you of the different factors they consider when giving quotes. These factors can include:
Where you want the paving to be done will greatly affect the final price since certain areas require a different method and/or equipment. Some of these areas can be harder to work on too. For instance, pool paving is typically an expensive project because it’s a tight-access area. The usual heavy machinery used for other paving jobs won’t fit in the pool area, so smaller equipment is needed, which can raise the costs.
Most concrete paving businesses provide quotes on a per-square metre basis. Naturally, you’ll have to spend more money if you want paving done on larger areas like your driveway.
Concrete paving experts will likely charge higher rates if the project involves paving on an uneven or sloping terrain. It’s harder to level the concrete on these kinds of surfaces, so they will definitely be more labour-intensive.
