We base our prices off the industry standards vs. the cost of materials and labor. It does hold at least partially true that you get what you pay for. We do charge more than a lot of contractors that are less skilled. And we charge less than a lot of contractors with higher overhead than we have. We enjoy and pride ourselves in giving you nice work, value engineering so you will get the most for your investment!
Our prices are consistent no matter what kind of neighborhood you live in. You won't pay more just because you can afford to. Essentially, Kings, peasants and all in between are charged the same. And keep in mind that we use the best quality products in our work. Cheaper prices usually indicates our competition is either cutting corners - or not comparable work. Of course, use your best judgment when attempting to compare others' work and prices to the Big Fish.
Counter tops start with a $1800 minimum. Above this, they average $85 per square foot, less per sq ft for simplicity and high volume. -We also can create unique design pieces for your kitchen and home, etc- charged per piece basis.
Stamped Concrete starts with a $2500 minimum. Above about 180-200 square feet, it runs typically $12-$14 per square foot, average. Of course the ocean is the limit~ intricate designs and premium colors will cost more, while larger areas and simplicity will reduce prices. Our minimum is mainly due to the repetitive days required for the stamped process. Others' techniques shortening this process reflects in their work.
Stained Concrete starts with a $1500 minimum. Above 375 square feet it continues at $4 per square foot, average. Larger areas will be charged less per square foot.
Sculpted stone starts at $200. We can make smaller artificial stones to hide outdoor lighting, fixtures, mailboxes, utilities, speakers, etc. The price is generally more around the $2500 level for a six foot tall children's climbing rock structure. A Grotto for you spa or waterfalls and slide designs tend to be $10K and up depending on how elaborate.
Sculpture pieces like an abstract Fish or Vertebrae or refined statue start at $2500, average about $5K; Medium to Large pieces suitable for your business lobby and offices can vary- average about $15K. All work is unique, envied, and priced per conceptual designs.
Water features start at $3200+. This gets you the equipment to run a no-to-low maintenance water feature. Better pump, sterilizer, and linings. The initial investment will pay for itself over short time just on the savings of electricity to run it and servicing. The size of the feature and design options will determine the price above the minimum- average about $8-10K with our sculpted Basalt Columns and lighting.
Other work is priced much as mentioned above- we estimate the extent of the cost of materials and the time involved and give you the benefit of the doubt! We tend to discount original ideas for the pleasure of creating it! And of course, there is too much to list here all the possibilities with decorative concrete. If you've seen it or can think it, we can probably replicate or top it!
Flexibility is key. These prices are guidelines. Contact us with questions about your project to get more accurate pricing.
Budget. Assuming you have factored spending within a range, let us know what you are after and we can show you what you can get for the investment. $5000 with us goes farther than $5000 with others. And very often we will do more in the project than you paid for!
Conception. We create unique designs. If you want something that no one else will have, then you have come to the right people! Also, incorporate us with your architect during design and we can help plan your environment.
