How Much Does a Concrete Contractor Charge
Labor is the biggest expense. One way to estimate how much you will spend is to determine the duration of your project. Will this be a one day project or a one week project. There is a big difference between these.
Most contractors will charge you a project rate that will be determined by the duration of the project, the labor required, the complicated nature of the project, and more. Typically concrete contractors do not charge by the hour, but if you break it down hourly, it can be anywhere between \$80 to \$180 per hour.
The materials to get your job done is second most important consideration. Add the cost of the concrete for your project. The cost of the concrete is generally around \$75 per cubic yard
Determine what work will be required to prep the project. If you are repairing and re-installing your driveway, the contractor will likely need to demolish and remove the existing driveway, which is very labor intensive and backbreaking work. This type of work can cost around $75 to $125 per hour.
What other costs will be associated with your project? There are likely other material expenses that will arise. For example, you may have costs for concrete reinforcement which can cost about $.10 or more per square foot. Concrete forms and finishing work can cost about $1 to $2.50 per square foot.
If you would like a more accurate estimate, nothing beats a professional reviewing your project and providing you with an accurate quote. A physical inspection is required to ensure both the contractor and homeowner understand the scope and duration of the project. Contact us to learn more.
