    last time I checked 3000 psi mix with fiber in my area was 129.00 a yard I had a guy that I know is a contractor gets special pricing get it for 110.00 a yard if I let him finish it worked out to be the same money you would nee 5 yards roughly 650 for the concrete if you can finish it all yourself

    I just self poured a 16X14 4 inches thick. Not counting my labor the crete was $515, since I was on a hill took a lil more DGA ($250) than for a flat spot. I had @$120 in framing (most of all I'm leaving as it's a support wall). Add to that the power compactor I rented, 2 man post hole auger, and the Georgia buggy I ended up just under $1100. That Georgia buggy was a life saver!

    That's about $1000 worth of concrete (8 yards). Seems steep, but labor and time ain't free

    They have to drill into the existing pad put in rebar gravel and forms plus labor and concrete 8.66 yards. I think it's more then fair, first two quotes I got from others we're higher..

    $4,050 is the cheapest you could find but it’s definitely in the fair territory....especially if you like the guy and are confident in his work.

    biggest issue was sorry contractors who didn't even want to show up I called at least 10 different ones from pro contractors to handymen, this guy happens to live a few miles away , he came by we talked a while about everything from concrete to hunting and racing..seems like a good dude so he got the job..

    There is more than enough work and contractors are picking and choosing what they want to do

    I suppose but it would be nice to get a call saying pass or just don't have the time.. I have owned several small businesses and a little customer service goes a long way.
