I am thinking of having a company to lay block paving to the front of my house to make a driveway.
I know you should have 3 quotes for the job,but i have rang about 6 different companies so far,and only 2 have come round to measure up.
The first company spent all of 5 mins taking measurements but have not contacted me since.
The other called today,took measurements,discussed drainage,turnaround time,levels,materials and left a brochure etc,he said i should have the quote by post on Weds,plus i got this company name from a list of approved contractors from the block manufacturers website (he had their logo on his polo shirt) you know the type,look like a "proper" tradesman.
I would like to know if there is a rough estimate for approx 40sq meters of block paving? so,when i get his letter,i can decide if the price is reasonable without having to shop around.
Like i said,i am having trouble getting people to come out and see the job,let alone get 3 quotes.
Anybody had a similar job done?
