What is the average price for stamped concrete per sq ft in Niagara area vs decorative patio stones?
Honestly both are quite costly, although interlocking stone pavers definitely last much longer and repairs are easy to make after 5-6 years with concrete if you get a crack or frost damage the the repair is not easy and will cost more. But in the end of installation they are pretty close in price depending on the type of pavers you choose and the size of the project area.
A good quality paver can be as much as 5.00/square foot and the cost of installation can range anywhere from 3.50-8.00 depending on what is involved such as walkway driveway, patio.
Concrete is priced by the yard the cost is generally 120.00 per yard and labor costs vary depending on how good the finisher is. Certain stamped patterns cost more. Easily budget to spend atleast 10-15.00/ square foot for either project.
My advice would be figure out your budget then get a quote from a few reputable contractors.
To Peter, thats a great response, you must be one hell of a businessman. The reason i asked was i got quotes and just seemed the stamped concrete was double the price of paving stones.
Thought i would throw out the question so as a single parent i don't get ripped off. But thx for your comment.
The average cost of stamp concrete, prep, form and pour is also by the sq ft.
In Toronto, our average is about 15 sq ft + if any steps involved
For pavers, we start at $10.00 per sq ft and up depending on the stone.
I am a not a fan of pavers at all, as it is a much more costly product (only in the long run) from sinking, shifting, airborn weeds and such
Concrete, when formed, poured with proper mpa and prepped properly will last as long as your home.
We do our best with it but concrete is concrete and no one can guarentee you it wont crack.
I try to get my clients to use a more slate look pattern with more designs so incase you get small web cracks, you wouldnt really notice.
Hope this helps
Good on you for the response to Peter. If he can't provide a decent response then he should not comment at all. The good news is that his company name is posted so we all know where not to go!!!
FYI, I just received a quote to do a 25 x 3 walkway down the side of my house - $850.
As a hardscape contractor I swear by paving stone, but I dont do it because I'm biased but solely because I truly believe interlocking pavers when installed correctly are a far supperior product.
Please take a peek at the following chart.
