How to Price Out a Concrete Slab

1. Size of the slab. The amount of concrete needed for the project is a significant cost factor.

2. Thickness of the slab. If you’re using the slab for commercial purposes, you may require a thicker concrete slab.

3. Complexity of the project. The above estimates are for a slab on grade, meaning a slab poured at ground level. If you are digging down and building an entire below-grade foundation with a basement slab, you’ll pay significantly more for the project.

4. Design work. Depending on what you are doing with your slab, you may want some nicer concrete finishes such as stamped or polished concrete. These design options add to the cost.

5. Site conditions. If the area needs major excavation or leveling, expect to pay more.

6. Where you live. Prices for pouring a concrete slab vary depending on the going rates in your geographic area.
