Default Re: $17,000 for 3024 SF concrete

$100/yard for concrete??? I'm paying around $160 in W. PA. Haven't seen $100 in a few years. $5.50-$6.00/sq ft is pretty reasonable for general concrete work in my area, for what you're looking for, it's excellent if the guy is as good as his reputation. I'd be more leary of getting a quote substantially lower since we all know you get what you pay for. I'm building a pool house right now for a customer and he got a discount for his concrete work (approx 2400 sq/ft of exposed aggregate) if he pays cash. The initial price is $11.00/sq ft, formed, placed & finished and the discount got him to $8.50. Again, I think you're doing well with a contractor you feel comfortable with and the foam board.

I paid approximately $4.30 sqft for 4" 4500psi w/rebar, and 2" base material last fall for my building. I don't think that's to bad if he does quality work.

Like I said, I'd kill to be able to get all that done in my garage for $17,000 and I'm not even over 1000 sq.ft. There is a reason I'm doing all this myself. When a complete useless labor monkey is worth $20 - $25/hour, contractors tend to charge big for work up here. . .

You're getting a better deal than I can find. I'm at around 2200 SF at $7+/SF whereas you are sitting at around $5.62/SF. I actually have two different sites so that's adding to the cost as well as doing full footer/stem/floating slab vs. monolithic. Lots of steel. I would gladly pay the $5.62/SF!

>$100/yard for concrete??? I'm paying around $160 in W. PA

My local vendor pricing June/July 2011 was $88/yd delivered to the site. May be different now, but likely still under $100.
