is quote reasonable

Postby Lisa » Mon Oct 10, 2011 12:06 pm

I was quoted £470 for lifting and relaying flags in my back yard flags are 2ft by 2ft. The yard is 10ft by 26ft, The workman said it will take 2 people two days to do the work. Is this a reasonable quote

Thanks Lisa

HI Lisa

£ 470 is a fair quote for 2 men 2 days, a good slab layer would easy lay over 80 slabs a day you have 65 to lay but the contractor has to lift and clean them prior to relaying and cart in sand.
