Concrete contractors of the OT
Other than tree-fiddy, what should the typical cost be to form and pour a 12'x12'x4" slab, broom finished, with visquine and wire? That's about two yards of concrete.

He will need to order the concrete from a concrete supplier. They won’t bring 2 CY of concrete without charging a short load charge due to the cost of the trucking/ labor involved.

Figure:
$750 for concrete
$1,000 to form, pour, and place with fork materials included
Now you have to get rid of the spoil dirt/ grass material, so figure costs associated with this.
Also consider cost to get concrete from the truck to the point of placement. Rent a Georgia buggy, tailgate the concrete from the truck, or do you need s pump truck? Wheel barrowing 2CY of concrete will add to your labor cost above.

$2,000 to $2,500 is a safe budget for a 144 SF patio slab. $/SF is high, but you don’t have an economy of scale to work with. Placing more concrete is better.

Man if your supplier charges 500 bucks for a small load fee, find a different supplier cuz that’s a total rip off

we did this the other day, again, what I recommend, and I've done this before, is find some residential construction nearby, approach the crew of Mexicans contracted to grade, form, and pour, speak to el Jefe, get them to come over to grade, form, and put steel in the pad after work one day, get el Jefe to piggyback his 2 yards on one of his pours and go from his job to OP's, pour and finish, I know a guy that ran a very profitable septic tank installation bidness doing this, made his own tanks, hardly ever shelled out anything for concrete

re: Concrete contractors of the OT
Figure $220 for concrete to be safe ($110/yd) + $250 short load fee since you don’t even have 2 cuyd

$1500-$2000 all said and done depending on who you get to do it or what your time is worth

ETA: I’ll plug it in my sheet when I get back to the office to give you an idea

re: Concrete contractors of the OT
You can get it done for under $2k if you’re involved (labor too).

It probably won’t drain right or have the best finish on it but you’ll have saved some money.

If you don’t know anyone who can turn you on to a local concrete contractor:

Call a local concrete producer and ask to speak to the dispatcher there.

Ask the dispatcher for the contact information for the finisher that HE or SHE would use for a little decorative job at their own personal house.

Usually the Dispatchers know who’s shite & who’s Shinola.

Expect to spend $3k or so and make sure the contractor has Workmen’s Comp Insurance.

Good luck.

Placing concrete is roughly $6-10 a square foot.

re: Concrete contractors of the OT

It all depends on which supplier is used and their short yardage charge. A lot of them charge a 6-8CY minimum regardless of how much you order.

Last month I ordered 2 CY for some curbs after I’d already purchased 2,600 CY in a 3 story building with paving and was still charged for 6CY.

6CY @ $105/ CY plus tax is going to run you $700 no matter which way you skin it. $750 for concrete is a safe budget. Hopefully he can get it for $400 being it is 1.75 CY based on the measurements with a $200 short yard fee.

I couldn't imagine spending what anyone in here is saying.

I'd laugh and walk away.

144 sq ft is very, very tiny.

If you pay more than 1,000$, I'm sorry.

I'd call a concrete contractor. He will prep 3-5 jobs for the week, then bulk order the concrete.

re: Concrete contractors of the OT
In Houston, I just contracted for a driveway repair - breakout old and haul off, form and pour new. I know this isn't apples-to-apples but will give you an idea. I paid $8/sq ft. For your smaller job, I would guess slightly higher. So maybe $1,500 for 144 sq ft new project?

re: Concrete contractors of the OT
Jeez, as much as everyone is quoting, I'll probably form and order the concrete and just pour it myself with my son. Haven't done it in years, but I have a floater and edger. All I'm doing is putting a shed on top of it.
