I hired this guy last week to put some flagstones down in front of my house to the driveway. I was getting tired of tripping over roots, so I had ordered some fill dirt to raise the level of the area, which was already delivered and spread before this guy came and looked things over. Last Thursday he came out and looked. He suggested pavers. Okay, so he measured and said the materials would cost $200. They ended up to be $250, but no big deal. Friday he worked all day leveling the ground (I say all day, he came out around 12:30). Saturday he came at 2:30 and worked until 7:00. Sunday he worked 7 hours, Monday 7 hours, and Tuesday 7 hours. This is what I have so far - He did the main block coming off the front porch - this is the square part. Then he started the walkway at the outside long edge and worked his way toward the main block. Of course where it meets he has had to progressively cut the pavers so they will fit, starting with wide at one end and by the time he finishes at the other end they will be pretty narrow. I didn't get a real good picture of that - but picture one shows some. Also, he reversed the pattern of the pavers so they narrow ones will meet the wider ones and vice versa where they meet in the middle. Also in picture #3 you can see where he has covered a flagstone that we had in a spot where it gets soft when it rains. I told him quite a few times that they were to be taken away. I'm not real happy with the edging in picture #2, either. He said the cement he put around the main block took too long and he was going to turn a row of pavers sideways for the edge. My question is, am I being too picky? So far I have paid him $250 for the materials, $266 for working 3 days, and I owe him another $168 for Monday and Tuesday, and the job isn't even finished yet! That's 33-34 hours so far for laying these pavers - remember, the dirt was already delivered and spread. All opinions are appreciated. He will be here probably around noon and my plan is to pay him for the last 2 days and tell him so long!
