How does a concrete flooring project work?
A concrete floor is poured inside the home within a concrete foundation. Anything poured outside the home is probably a concrete slab. A slab is poured on top of gravel, and it is contained by temporary wood planks. Make this distinction when you are looking for quotes.
How much does the project cost?
Project prices reflect the size of the project. Small projects are more expensive than large projects when a concrete hauling company is required. Consider hauling your own concrete for an project under 9 cubic yards.
These estimate include labour, concrete, and additional materials for shape and support:
- Stamped concrete: $8 - $18+/yd3
- Normal poured concrete: $3 - $5+/ yd3
*Prices increase when vapor barriers, thicker slabs, trucks, and wire mesh are added.
Plan ahead by creating a contingency fund for this project. You should set aside an additional 10 – 20% for mishaps and other contingencies.
Is this a DIY project?
A well-seasoned DIY-er could pour a concrete slab if they have experience carefully measuring, watchfully leveling, and thoroughly cleaning up complex materials. Concrete pouring is a tricky job, so don't be afraid to ask for help. Installing a concrete floor indoors should be done by an expert.
Measure the size of your project (in cubic yards) before you decide to hire an expert to haul in the concrete.
Concrete can be an expensive endeavour depending on how much product you will need for the project. Consider investing in no-mix concrete from your local hardware store if your project is small. Concrete hauling companies charge consumers for small loads (short loads) if the order is under 9 cubic yards. These charges can get exceedingly pricey.
