Concrete Flatwork Cost


By ProMatcher Staff



Cost of Concrete Flatwork

Concrete flatwork is any flat, concrete surface or structure. Concrete flatwork projects include: 1) slabs, 2) patios, 3) driveways, 4) floors, and 5) foundations, in addition to other level, horizontal surfaces.



How much flatwork cost?

Here are some of the factors that impact the cost of installation:

1. Where do you live? Your geographic location will affect the cost of your project. In most cases, the cost of installation will be higher in metropolitan areas and lower in rural areas. Search our cost report to find the the cost in your area.

2. How large is the area? The cost of flatwork is typically determined by square footage. The larger the area is, the more material you’ll need. Additionally, thicker layers of concrete will come at a higher cost.

3. Will the concrete be reinforced? Concrete flatwork can be installed without any reinforcement. However, for additional durability and stability, the concrete can be installed with steel bars (called rebar) or wire mesh reinforcement.

4. Are there any curves? Flatwork designs with curves are more costly than square and rectangular designs. This may require the fabrication of custom molds.

5. How much site preparation is required? Most concrete flatwork is installed with a sand or gravel base below it. Excavation, sloping, and grading will come at an additional cost.

6. Stamped concrete. Stamped concrete will add to the cost per square foot of your project. One color designs are almost always more affordable than designs that incorporate several colors.

7. Concrete sealers and coatings. The cost of applying a sealer, or another coating, is not typically included with standard flatwork installation. There are many different concrete coatings available. This will add to the cost per square foot of the project.

8. Need stairs? In some cases, installing concrete steps will add to the cost of installing flatwork.

9. Is cleanup included? Cleanup should be included in the estimate you get from your contractor. The crew should leave your home just as they found it, if not better.
