Within each of the paver categories, the main considerations of cost are determined by the cost of the materials, the processes involved, and the labor or man hours that are required to complete the job.
Naturally, there are a number of additional determinants of price, including regional or local differences, local access to supplies, and discounts offered by large supply houses, or by especially competitive paving companies. In addition, pavers vary in price widely mainly because there is such a wide range of products from which to choose.
Another consideration is the cost of maintenance or the lifecycle costs of installed pavers. For example, a cheaper paver may keep the cost of installation down, but that particular paver may need extra maintenance or repairs or replacement over time.
Man made brick pavers can cost between .50 cents each, or between $5 and $15 per square foot. They can be installed for $10 to $20 per square foot. The cost for maintenance is low because brick pavers only require washing and sealing every year or so.
Natural stone pavers are more expensive. The average price is $10 to $30 per square foot for materials and $10 to $25 for installation. Installation is more costly because the stones usually have to be handled individually. However, the maintenance costs are nil because stones require no maintenance at all.
Concrete pavers, a manufactured product, are priced somewhere between $5 and $10 per square foot and installed for $5 to $10 per square foot. They require periodic cleaning and sealing to maintain their color.
Concrete pavers cost less than brick pavers and natural stone pavers because the cost of the raw materials to manufacture concrete pavers is much less than brick or natural stone pavers. If you are on a moderate budget you might wish to consider concrete patio pavers for value. If you have a higher budget, you might select brick or natural stone pavers.
