I got a bid of $4 per sf to form, pour, finish, stamp, dye, and seal about
1,000 sf of patio. Concrete included. What does this go for where you
live? The guy said a year ago here, it was going for double, but now
they're just trying to buy groceries it's so slow. He's a family friend,
and I've seen his work, and it's nice.
I don't know about the whole thing but here in central Florida they are
asking $2.75 /sf to form/pour/finish. I doubt that stamp/dye/seal would add
more than $1.25 so our areas seem similar.
If it were me, I'd ask how many men for how long then figure out the cost of
the concrete to see if he was being reasonable on labor. Sealers can vary
from inexpensive to "are you out of your mind?". BTW, finishing - here, at
least - is dirt cheap...my 5400' slab cost $540 for finishing a dozen years
ago. Now more, maybe half again as much? double?
I had my driveway replaced last summer. It ran $390 per yard for a 77 yard job.
That included removing and disposing the old driveway (concrete and blacktop),
forming, pouring stamping, dying, and sealing. The job took almost six weeks
because of rain and mud. It was also down a long (over 150') hill.
This worked out to about $7.00 a sq.ft.

Hmm. I have been wanting to get part of my driveway redone ever since
moving in. Maybe I should get some bids. (it's asphalt currently, and
where a big tree used to be some roots heaved it all up. This is right
in front of the garage, so I'd like to have it done in concrete to make
it more jackstand-friendly.)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Same around here...If things don't turn around soon you'll see contractors
of all stripes including myself standing in the parking lot of the Homedepot
with signs that say...Will work for food...LOL...
The bubble broke years ago. Vegas still has a breaking point. Lucky
for me I bought down when I had cash. The housing storm was fun, but I
still have a manageable mortgage. Don't plan to dump any time soon.
That is a good deal. We got bids on 7200 sqft of concrete and the low
bid was $5 and that wasn't stamped and stained, just smooth finish.
(Florida last summer). The high bid was $7.50
Concrete prices are probably a little less now.
