What items impact the cost of concrete delivery?

We have identified a few factors that may impact the cost of your concrete order.

  1. Amount of concrete needed
    Concrete deliveries are typically priced by the cubic yard. A typical mixer truck holds 10 yards of concrete. Some companies may have a minimum order. There may be extra fees associated with delivering loads of less than 6 yards.

  2. When you need the concrete delivered
    For example, weekend deliveries may cost more than weekday deliveries during normal business hours.

  3. Concrete mix specifications
    How strong is the concrete? (measured in pounds per square inch) What type of aggregate is used? Each batch will be individually formulated for the unique specifications of your project.

  4. Time needed to pour the concrete
    Most concrete contractors build in about 5 minutes for each yard. Any time beyond that will cost extra.

  5. Delivery distance
    There may be additional fees if you need the concrete delivered outside the plant's typical service area. Keep in mind that a batch of concrete only stays "good" for about 2 hours once it has been mixed. Long travel distances can be problematic.

  6. Job site conditions
    Are there any obstacles or challenges in place that may complicate the delivery and placement of the concrete? Does the concrete need to be pumped from the truck? Is there a fence obstructing access to the backyard?


Frequently Asked Questions about Concrete

What is concrete?

Concrete is one of the most popular and versatile construction materials. It can be used to build driveways, tunnels, patios, parking lots, kitchen countertops, retaining walls, and entire homes. Concrete is made by mixing cement, water, and some type of aggregate material. The aggregate base may be made of sand, gravel, crushed rock, or stone.

Wet concrete is poured directly on to the desired surface or it is poured into forms or molds. Over time, this mixture hardens and cures into a material that is similar to rock or stone. Concrete is often reinforced with steel bars (also known as rebar) or wire mesh to make it even stronger.

Ready-Mix Concrete vs. Concrete Bags

Ready mix concrete is made from cement, water, and an aggregate base. Ready-mix concrete is made off-site at a plant, rather than at the construction site. Each batch is formulated for the unique specifications of the project and then delivered to the job site. Each batch only lasts a number of hours. If too much time is allowed to pass, the quality of the product will be compromised.

Ready mix concrete is typically delivered to the job site by a large truck with a revolving drum (also called a mixer truck). A fully-loaded mixer truck usually holds about 10 cubic yards. The product arrives as a paste that hardens and cures into a stone-like material.

Ready-mix concrete is commonly used to construct:
Larger concrete slabs and patios
- Driveways
- Parking lots
- Foundations
- Concrete walls
- Sidewalks and walkways

Premixed bags of concrete can be purchased at your local home improvement store. Most bagged concrete mixes are rated at about 4,000 PSI. Bagged concrete is most commonly purchased in 60-lb. and 90-lb. bags. While the bags are very affordable, youalso need to factor the rental of a small mixer into your total project cost.

Concrete bags are better for smaller jobs. Bagged concrete is used for:
- Minor repair work - Small porches, stoops, and patios - Fence post setting - Patio and deck footings

How do I calculate my concrete order?

In order to calculate your concrete order, you will need to know the approximate dimensions of your project. Once you've figured those out, you will need to convert all of your measurements to feet.

1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet

Let's keep it simple to start. Let's say you want to pour a simple concrete patio that measures 15 feet long by 15 feet wide (6-inch thickness).

First, multiply the length by the width by the depth of your slab to find the total cubic footage of your slab.

Length X Width X Thickness

15 feet x 15 feet x 0.5 feet (6 inches) = 112.5 total cubic feet

Now, we must convert that number to cubic yards to find out how much concrete to order. To do that, we will divide by 27.

112.5 divided by 27 = 4.17 cubic yards

In order to build a 15 ft. x 15 ft. concrete slab that is 6 inches thick, you will need to order approximately 4.17 cubic yards of concrete. You will always want to order a little extra to account for waste and spillage.

For reference, a 60-pound bag of ready-mix concrete yields about .017 cubic yards. A fully-loaded cement truck holds approximately 10 cubic yards.

Concrete Strength Options (PSI)

The strength of concrete is based on the product's water-to-cement ratio. Too much water can compromise the integrity of the concrete. Strength can be added by incorporating more cement into the mix.

The durability and strength of concrete is measured in PSI (or pounds per square inch). PSI is a measure of compressive strength, or the ability of the material to carry loads and handle compression. As the PSI rating of the concrete increases, so does the price.

Most residential concrete applications have a PSI rating of about 3000. This is the type of concrete that is often used for sidewalks, patios, and driveways.

Concrete with a PSI rating of 3500 to 4000 is typically can be used for concrete beams and footings. It can also be used for slab foundations and high traffic roads.

Any concrete that will be exposed to freeze-thaw cycles should be a minimum of 4000 PSI.

What are the different concrete texture and finish options?

Concrete can be finished in a number of different ways. For example, it can be stamped, stained, or polished.

  • Troweling is the most common finishing method. Once the concrete has been placed, a trowel is used to level out the surface, fill in any gaps, and create a smooth, flat surface.

  • Broom-finished concrete is popular with exterior concrete flatwork that is meant to be walked on. The broom's texture helps to create small ridges in the flat surface – which can help to prevent slips and falls.

  • Concrete can be stamped to resemble the look of natural stone, brick, and other materials. Stamped concrete is popular when building pool decks, patios, and driveways.

  • Salt finish concrete is created by pressing rock salt into the wet surface of new concrete slab. Once the concrete sets, the salt is removed with water and the concrete surface is left with a textured look.

  • Polished concrete is created by using grinders with diamond-encrusted blades. Polished concrete is glossy, shiny, and smooth to walk on.

  • Exposed aggregate concrete is created by removing the top layer of concrete to "expose" the aggregate within the concrete. Natural stones, decorative glass pieces, shells, and other materials can be added to the mix to give the surface a unique look and provide some slip-resistance.

What are the ideal conditions for pouring concrete?

The ideal temperature to pour exterior concrete is somewhere between 55° F - 85° F. It is not impossible to pour concrete in temperatures outside of this range, but it requires additional precautions and technical knowledge.

If temperatures are too cold, it will take longer for the concrete to set. Problems will arise if the air temperature falls below 32° F before the concrete has cured.

If temperatures are too hot, the concrete may dry too fast. Problems arise when the top layer of concrete dries faster than the bottom layer.

Temperature is not the only factor you need to consider though. Heavy rainfall can ruin new concrete. Wind speed and humidity may also factor into the equation. Too much humidity can slow drying times. Strong winds may not allow the concrete to set properly.

How long does it take for concrete to fully cure?

It takes about 28 to 36 days for concrete to reach its full compressive strength. In reality, concrete continues to build strength for months after it is placed.

There are a few factors that may impact the amount of time needed for the concrete to cure. For example, the amount of water in the concrete mix and the local weather conditions may have an impact on curing times.

After about one week, the concrete will reach about ¾ of its total strength. If you have a new concrete driveway, concrete contractors recommend waiting at least three to seven days before parking cars on the new surface.

Concrete Driveway Pros & Cons

Concrete is one of the most durable driveway construction materials. With the proper maintenance, a concrete driveway can last upwards of 30 years. Concrete can be stained, dyed, and stamped to your liking. The design options are almost endless. However, there are a few disadvantages as well. Concrete driveways are significantly more expensive than asphalt driveways. It can also be very difficult to hard to hide stains and disguise crack repairs.

Four advantages of installing a concrete driveway:
  1. Long lifespan
  2. Super durable
  3. Low maintenance costs
  4. Design flexibility
Three disadvantages of installing a concrete driveway:
  1. High initial installation cost
  2. Can be easily stained
  3. Concrete needs time to fully cure

When can I start using my concrete driveway?

There is some debate about when it is okay to park on a newly poured concrete driveway. At the very minimum, you should wait 48 to 72 hours. Some contractors recommend waiting 7 to 10 days (or even longer) before driving or parking on a new concrete driveway.

In reality, it takes about 30 to 45 days for a concrete driveway to full cure. Check out our concrete contractor poll to see how they answered this same question.

How long does a concrete driveway last?

Most concrete driveways last anywhere from 20 to 30 years. In some cases, a well-maintained concrete driveway can last over 40 years when installed with the proper base. There are many variables that can influence the lifespan of a concrete driveway, including the local climate, the quality of the initial construction, and how much wear-and-tear the driveway gets.

See how the concrete contractors in our network answered this question. You might be surprised by their answers.

How Much Does Concrete Driveway Resurfacing Cost?

The average cost to resurface a concrete driveway ranges from $2.99 to $5.60 per square foot. Most homeowners end up spending somewhere between $2950 to $5400 to resurface a concrete driveway. Prices may vary based on the condition of your old driveway and the location of the job site.

Keep in mind that it is not possible to resurface every concrete driveway. In some cases, total replacement will be the only option. It will largely depend on the current condition of the existing driveway.

How Much Does Concrete Paver Driveway Installation Cost?
