View Full Version : Patio price estimate needed

03-29-2006, 03:01 PM
OK, it has been awhile since I have done something like this, so I don't know what the going rate is. I have someone who wants a 20 x 16 concrete patio poured. So, I have 320 square feet. I will have about 4.5 yards of concrete needed for the job. Right now, in my area concrete is $83/yard. So, this person has 373.50 in concrete. I'm not sure on the price of sand, but I'm going to put down a sand base.

Anyway, besides the price of all the material needed (concrete and sand), how much should I charge for a pretty basic project like this?

320 SF patio with good access, using sand to level the base, you will have 10 framing hours, $250.00 for a pump, $350.00 for a finisher. I would charge $2,600 for a 3000 PSI pegravel load with a broom finish and $3,200.00 for a colored load with no more than 1# of color per yard. Colors such as Palomino from Davis, add another $500.00 for the color charges.
