Finally settled on a concreter to do the patio! Woot woot! I had a few quotes, and they seemed ridiculous. We only need about 2 cubic metres and quotes were coming in at about $6,000. How can a days work cost that considering the concrete would probably cost us $1,500 if we ordered it ourselves.
I find it challenging to sift through these trades, some think they can take advantage of you and ask for an arm and leg. I just can’t justify the cost of someone creating a box and standing by watching someone else pour the concrete, to be $3,000 worth.
Good news though, we found someone who will do the lot. Here’s hoping for some good weather. Then we will finally be able to walk up a set of steps and stand on our patio.
