The cost is probably the first thing people want to know when considering to have your patio or driveway replaced with concrete. Basic concrete can range from $4 to $12 per square foot but there are many variables and each project is priced accordingly. The price can vary depending on what options you want included in your concrete. Also, if they’re an other pavement or other obstructions that need to be removed for the new concrete, those will add to the costs. Areas that can’t be accessed by machinery are also going to be more pricey for concrete installations as the job becomes very labor intensive. Generally, small jobs will have a minimum charge as even though it’s a small project, the mobilization of the crew and machinery will be the same as a larger project. If you plan on having decorative concrete done on your driveway, walkways or patios, the price will be higher than standard concrete. A concrete contractor should create a cost sheet that meets your needs.
