Default what's it cost to have a concrete pad poured these days?

We're looking at moving soon, and I need to figure the cost of building a garage in to how much we can spend. I can do the actual building myself, but I want to hire out the slab. How much can I expect to pay for a 25 x 40 with excavation?

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

Hey Andy..I was looking at a porch and the concrete alone was $75 a sq. yard, that was the cheapest If I did it myself....I do have a contractor friend that might be able to hook you up..He has worked for Levine & Poor for about 25 years and does side work all the time..might be worth the call...

Beats the crap out of me, Brad, that's why I'm hiring someone

Rob, that would be outstanding. We're not ready to buy in yet, I'm just trying to figure out how much house we can afford, taking into consideration my growing collection of Buicks

Just looking for a ballpark. What, $6-7K?

Here in this area, which will be diffrent throughout the country, but in this area we are at $3.50 per sq. ft. for 6" thick slab, plus the extra for the grade beam if thats what you will be doing. I suspect down there you can do a grade beam. That will add a few grand to the cost. So figure up here it would run about $3500 for the slab, and maybe another $1500 or so for the grade beam, so $5000 area.

Excavation costs here average about $150 per hour the machine runs. To excavate a 1000 sq. ft. plus dig the grade beam wouldn't take much more than a few hours and a couple trucks of 3/4" crusher run. Maybe a grand for that as well.

Edit: I know where you can find an electrician to wire it for you, he is always looking for excuses to get away anyways

The 25X40 slab at 4" thick should take around 13 yards. You will need to add a little more for the footings. I haven't seen 3000 psi concrete for less than $100 in the last few years. You need to decide if you want rebar or wire mesh or go with the fiberglass reinforced concrete. My guess would be around $2500 to $3000 to grade, form and pour the concrete. That price included the contractor supplying all materials.

I think the slab was about $4500 for the 20 x 24 I had done in 2001. I can't remember if it had a grade beam or not, I think it did

Ah ok, so perhaps $3k for the work, $1500 for the concrete.

I think a 4" slab would be sufficient, my awesome collection of Buicks and pickle bucket roadsters isn;t that heavy

When I built my 24x26 garage in 2003 I paid about $900 for the guy to form and pour the concrete. I bought all the material and did the grading.

3000psi crete might be $100 a sq. yard now, but I can not see 7k in crete for a shop...I was going to do a back drive in my lot for my 5th wheel and it was going to cost $3800 and that was curb cut, and a washed slab 4" thick 75'x20' and I wasn't going to touch any of it..

Mike you gotta stop showing those guys the 66 until after you receive the bids........For that price I would want footers.....5 courses of 12" block and a thermal heating and cooling loop in the slab. I have always brought the block up high enough that I can bring a hose inside with no fear of wetting the studded walls or Sheetrock. It cuts down on the length of the lumber needed for tall ceilings as well. I visited a friend last year up north who had the heated slab system installed and he used a wood stove with a coil and circulator pump......It was sweet

Well this could be an interesting thread. What does Andy do? Does he continue the degradation of America and hire illegals to get a bigger garage, or does he hire only legal, fully documented workers and sacarafice garage for the American working man? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.................
