Concrete slab quote

What would you charge for a 35 x 50 slab with 5 inches 4000 psi concrete, rebar, plastic and 4 inches stone. No footers. No grading, just level the rock, rebar, plastic and cut.

The Concrete here is about 120.00yard. the stone is 21.00 a ton.curious what I should expect to pay. The first quoate was quite offensive.

Just guessing, I would think that a contractor could make a fair profit if it was in the neighborhood of $6,500-$7K. That would be around a $2K+ profit minus labor, and a good small crew could knock that out in less than a day. Concrete prices are all over the place in my experiences working around many different crews. I would get estimates from several different competent contractors. I'm sure at least one will be over $10K.

I probably wouldn't get it though. There's too many chumps around here willing to work for wages.

If it were my job, or my house for that matter, I would prepare the slab with help from a couple laborers, order concrete and have a crew come in and pour it. I have a crew here that will pour for a buck a foot (sometimes less) and hand tool the joints. If the project called for sawcut joints I'd do them myself, since I have a saw.

Yup. People are crazy especially when it comes to concrete. I have literally laughed in a customers face after hearing the other prices they received.

The construction industry is so bad around that prices I can charge are equal to what was being paid in the year 2000. So I was really shocked that the first bid the guy had 6000.00 dollars profit in a less than 2 day job? I know the cost of living is higher up North than here so I do take that into account with every ones posts.

with concrete, there is no do overs. That responsibility is expensive. Also skilled concrete finishers want to work for 300 or 500 per day
