Looking at prices for paving

Paving prices in Gauteng

R95.00 per m2 sounds like a good price but when you add delivery, labour, compaction equipment and vat then the price is no longer so attractive. The average price for paving on an all inclusive basis ranges from R180.00 to R400.00 per m2 dependent on the paving selection and the area that is being paved.

If there are rocks that need to be broken down or removed then there could be the price of a jackhammer added to the total. One thing that few contractors talk about is the rubble that needs removal after the installation, this is an additional cost of between R900.00 to R1250.00 per 6m3 load depending on the type of rubble and the rubble company.

Rubble can cost a lot of money to remove.

It is always a good idea to check if the price you are given includes all the above so that you are not caught for extra monies after the paving is completed. Another thing to look out for is why there might be a huge price difference between suppliers of the same bricks. There are many manufacturers that manufacture the same looking brick but the difference is whether it is a S.A.B.S. brick or not. A cheap brick could and should have a shorter life span than a brick that costs a little more but is a S.A.B.S. brick.

Paving is like any other investment that one makes and needs a little investigation. Talk to a couple of paving installation companies not only about their price but also their installation procedure. There are again builders that are excellent in building multi million Rand houses and are flawless in their finishing but most don’t produce the same results with paving.

The main reason is that the ground needs certain preparation and specific finishing to produce a top quality paved area and an owner would not know how good or bad the paving is until it starts to collapse which could take anything from 6 months to 2 years. Aztec paving would not be discussing these issues if we did not have the customer at heart. Contact Aztec paving and 2 to 3 other established companies to ensure a proper and long lasting installation.

 

Don’t snub cheap paving

One thing about some cheap paving is, it is stronger and longer lasting when compared to a lot of the more expensive alternatives. The cheap paving that I am referring to here is what is often called “Broken brick cobble.”

I often tell people that before they spend their hard earned money on paving they should do a little research. My favourite one is to tell my clients to take a drive around an older more established area and pay attention to the various types of paving that was laid.

You will often find many houses with this type of paving and if you ask the owner of the house to tell the age of the paving you will often find out that it has been down for more than 20 – 25 years. Then you will find paving much younger (sometimes less than 5 years) that has been laid with a more expensive brick and is ready to be replaced.

I am not saying that this is the only paving brick or style to consider, rather, I am saying that you should do a little homework and test your paving salesman to see if his interest is with you or if he is more concerned about getting your order and his commission. My first choice always is clay pavers as they last and last with very little wear being shown.
