# Concrete Calculator

I'm in the concrete business so a concrete calculator comes in very handy when I'm pricing up a job. If you're like me, I always like to know the costs of my projects upfront. I don't like surprises.

Most people don't realize how much it costs for concrete! I get calls all the time asking me what it would cost to do certain concrete work. So the concrete calculator will allow a lot of people to figure out their own quantities.

In New Brunswick you can expect to pay $160m-$180m for construction grade ready mix concrete. For decorative concrete mixes allow up to $230m for concrete and color.

If you're calculating a concrete slab, multiply the length by the width in feet and times the depth in inches.

If you're calculating a concrete wall, it would be the total length of the entire wall by the thickness of the wall (8" for standard forms) (6" for ICF walls) by the depth in inches.

Try it below! 30' X 60' slab by 6" deep would be about...25.49 meters or 33.33 yards.

A foundation that is 30 X 50 has 160' of running wall by 8" wide and (8') (96" deep) would have 24.16 meters or 31.60 cubic yards

You try it! A footing course for a 30 X 50 foundation would look like this... 160' long X 2' in width X 6" deep for standard foundations and 8" deep for ICF foundations.

I built the concrete table below to give you an idea of how much it will cost you for a foundation. There are ICF calculations as well!
