This article from the experienced team at CollinsBrooke Landscape will give you an idea of how much it will cost and how long it will take to install a paver patio at your home or business property.
Factors That Impact Price
Patio pavers are an excellent choice for homeowners looking to enhance their property’s aesthetic appeal; however, several factors can influence the cost. This section examines some factors that affect the cost of installing a paver patio in upstate South Carolina.
Although many factors impact price, square footage is the most crucial. It is essential to focus first on the intended size when planning the project because the materials and labor you need will depend on it. After deciding how large a patio you want, you can accurately begin to calculate the project’s final cost.
While size is the primary determining factor of price, complex designs can also increase costs. Since patios built from concrete pavers or natural stone are customizable, homeowners have full control over the project’s outcome. However, it can be easy to get carried away. Finding the perfect balance between affordability and luxury is integral to a successful outcome for your project.
Most landscaping companies base the price for paver patios on square footage. Typically, homeowners can expect to pay between $15 and $25 per square foot, but this may vary. For example, homeowners in upstate South Carolina usually spend between $5,000 and $10,000 on the entire project, from laying the gravel base to laying out the pavers, cutting pieces to fit and installing joint sand to lock the patio together. Note: these costs can vary depending on the exact scope of work.
Grading and Leveling
During the planning of a patio project, your chosen landscape contractor will assess the terrain of your property and decide as to whether grading work or other site-prep must be done in order to effectively build the patio. This is dependent on the exact placement of your patio, as well as the soil type, current drainage solutions, etc.
Do I Need A Permit?
In most cases, homeowners do not need a permit before constructing a patio. It’s best to consult your city or township as well as your Homeowners’ Association (if applicable) to gather insight on the regulations for landscaping work.
