this is not a bad price as long as its not the cheap crap you get of the internet at 16 pounds sqm,good quality uniformed sandstone costs around 35 pounds per sqm ,then sand cement ,labour and all pointing ect ,depending on ground conditions the price can be up to 200-250 sq metre as you are level and ready to go its a fair price ,to lay indian sandstone properly you need an experienced paviour theres a lot more work in it than your average patio

Any one working for less than £100 sqm on Indian stone paving, Pointed with a jointing compound will not last in the buisness. My experience tells me pricing has to go up. Vehicle's to run insurances, maintenance, wages to pay bad weather. I can point you in the direction off the £50 sqm gangs you get what you pay for.

yes I would say its a fair price if it was a inside job say a kitchen floor the home owners usually jump for joy at what a bargain there getting were poor old paves working out side in all conditions get "oh that seems dear" if there good quality flags and your man can lay them to a high standard then yes it will be worth every penny

Each job is priced as per the conditions, its a difficult question to answer. Things to think about would be: is there easy access, is the installer a small or big company, is it a high quality slab, what area you are in...... there are lots of reasons why i would say not to listen to any of the above answers apart from proline fencing and landscapes.... he is right, get a few quotes and get a feel for what the installers are telling you.....
