View Full Version : Concrete pouring/finishing prices.

January 4th, 2011, 07:49 PM
What is an average cost of getting concrete poured and finished? South Western Pa. A yard of Crete is averaging $120. 24x24 flat basement floor. Already graded. Three doors to frame. A Crete truck can pull all the up to the house. I got two prices already just seem a little high to me.

Any info would be appreciated.

Labor only - truck can reach the job

Flat work - To form, place concrete and finish = $1.00 +-sf
House slabs - form, dig footings, place steel, place concrete and finish = $3.00+- sf

Just labor. Not hard forming. A 36 door, 8 ft garage door, and a 6 foot patio door. Already graded. I got 1 price of $3.50 and one for $3.33. I would think how easy of a pour and no wheeling I would pay about $2.

Any other Ideas?

remember the old rule of thumb here man you get what you pay for, dont settle on the cheapest price or you will pay 3x in the long run

I'm not looking for the cheapest price. I'm looking for the averages so I don't get ripped off.

24 by 24 ur grade may not mean nothing,, but for the sake of arguement,,if there is no busting old concrete disposal of concrete,,just pouring concrete,, i would order my own truck 24 by 24,thats 2,,, 7 yard trucks,,(i guessing approximately14yards of crete)14 times $140=1960,,, 400-475 for labor,,,100 for the framing so 525 total labor,,,low ball 2450 high 2650,,, am i close to ur contractors numbers,,i live in cincinati,, and i do this type work,
i might say 14 yards is too much ,, but i always order 1 yard more in case the truck is light thats part of the busniuess,, nad ur grade may not be my grade ,, but thats how i would handle it

do not just pour concrete and not have it tied in to the walls with rebar,, do not pour and have no steel or chicken wire messing to hold the crete together..if u decide to do it urself just get a big board to screte the crete(level u need 2 people generally) as the crete hardens ur hand trowel it to finish,, in the winter i would use 1% calcium 3500psi crete,,6 slump,, reson i brought up the quality of the crete and calcuim is the contractor will know things u may have not thought of or even know,, my estimate is also based on 2 people working to get the job right

The guy I'm prob gonna go with was $2800 check or $2600 cash. First estimate was $3300. I have it graded with stone. Nothing to bust out. Just those three doors to form. This is an addition. The basement. Truck backing up to door and dumping. Maybe wheeling 10 feet across to other side. $2800 sound good?

A four inch floor I came up with 9 yards. That is one heavy. How did you figure 14. $2600 with a check sounds reasonable.

was in my mind of how deep the grade was 24by24 by 6 inches,,4 inches is ok thickness,,is there any drains to be graded is all plumbing intact?u have to understand i wasnt looking at the job,,i was only taking a mental picture from things i have done,,as to the price 2800 sounds reasonible,,those 2400-2600 prices i spoke about are prices that a depressed economy price,,basicly someone in the winter who needs work would work for,,2800 is a good price with warranty included and there shouldnt be any troubles considering its a basement ,good luck with the basement,,also talk with them about possible waterprrofing the walls before pouring the crete

i need to come work where you guys all live, a 24 x 24 basement slab would cost ya $1440.00 all labor and materials!!

that is in west michigan, and the prices were the same when the economy was flying 6-10 years ago.
