View Full Version : Concrete Patio
05-27-2004, 01:13 PM
I priced out 11 patios with flagstone set in stone dust and belgium block as a border. Each patio is 180 square feet. I gave them a price of 2900 for each patio. What would you charge for just a concrete slab for each patio. The flagstone would obviously look better, but the condominium is concerned with cost.

180 sq. ft. pad poured 4" thick will be approx. 2.5 yards of mud. This small amount will raise the price of your concrete a considerable amount, prob. by 25 to 35 dollars a yard. This means 250-300 in mud, 50 in gravel and forms. You and another guy could pour 2.5 yards in an 1.5 hours. So by the time you finish your form work, wire, and pour you might have a half day at max. Your total cost of goods and labor will be approx. around $500.00 to $600.00. For pours over a 1000 sq ft we charge $5 sq ft and for pours under that we charge roughly $6 to $7 a sq ft. This is for a broom finish only. No stamps of coloring.

curious......how do you pour the concrete so it sits on a small slope. I have a job requiring this.

I'm not a concrete guy, so take this with a grain of salt....
Depending on the slope you need the finished concrete to be, form it and pour it. Concrete generally will "hold" in place on slight slopes.
If in doubt, call the redi-mix supplier, tell them what you are trying to do, and have them figure out what mix to bring you. If it's severe enough of a slope, you will want a lower slump mix....
