EP Henry's least expensive pavers ?

piscesgirlNovember 5, 2010

We in the process of getting some quotes for redoing our front walkway. Since we are not sure what type of paver we are going with at this point the contractors gave us some preliminary pricing based on their suggestions.

First contractor stated they would pick a middle of the price range EP Henry paver. He quoted us using Brickstone or Old Towne Cobble. He told us it costs him about $4.00 - $4.50 per sq ft.

The second contractor also priced using Brickstone or Old Towne Cobble but he told us it was EP Henry's cheapest stone, stating that it was a great product and was just less expensive because it is less labor intensive to make.

Both contractors quotes were very similar.

Based on the research that I did online Brickstone and Old Town Cobble appear to be EP Henry's cheapest pavers. They also appear to cost less than $4.00 - $4.50 per sq foot.

Can anyone confirm this? What is the average price for these pavers?

The reason why I ask is (1) I want to understand which contractor is able to get the best pricing (2) I would like to be sure the contractor I choose is being honest with me and (3) I also want to make sure they are not marking up the stone....which I asked both of them and they insist they are not.

Why would you not expect someone to mark up a product they're selling to you? What you're saying is that you're expecting, as a homeowner, to get contractor pricing for a material. Doesn't compute.

Maybe he's expecting the contractor to get contractor pricing and then he'll pay retail? That way the contractor makes a buck but the homeowner's paying what they would if he bought it himself.

I know this is an old post, but the correct answer is the lowest price EP Henry paver is the imperial line. These pavers are cheaper because they are not colored the whole way through. Basically they will need to be stained in 20 years. I used some on a circle kit and they look great. If anyone wants to go cheaper Brick is by far cheaper than pavers but less options. Hope it worked out!
