How can I estimate the cost of concrete porch repair?


Answer by  frank (279)

To estimate the cost one would need to measure the size of the repair to determine the amount of concrete necesary. Concrete is basically cheap $5.00 for 60 lbs.Then determine the number of hours at about $15 per hour.


Answer by  flooringbob (28)

The easiest way to get that estimate would be to contact several reliable concrete companies and then compare the best rates.The concrete companies generaly work on a square footage basis so it may be helpful to first measure the square footage,length times width,before going to your phone book to find them.

Any good contractor should be able to give you an estimate that you are hoping for, before you sign or agree to do anywork. If they want work up front, walk away.

Calculate the square footage to be poured. Take the length times width times depth usual six inches. Then go to a concrete supplier and get a quote.

The cost of concrete porch repair depends on how big the porch will be? What is the length of the porch? What is the height of the porch? These factors will affect the cost. You are looking at 300 dollars of the cost of repair. It can vary up to even 500.

You are going to want to measure how big the porch is and then you can estimate on how many bags of quickrete you will need.


Answer by  digital1007 (113)

Trying to figure out the cost may be hard for the average person to do. I would recommend you to look in the phone book for a reliable concrete company in your area. Too many variables to get an estimate.

Start by finding the dimensions of the repair area. Then find out the amount of the need materials. Then calculate the cost of material plus a little for waste.


Answer by  rbowersock (32)

You would begin by determining whether the wholw porch or just a portion of the porch is in need of repair. once determined, you would need to find the square footage of the area as well as the thickness of the porch itself.


Answer by  les59 (852)

The best way to estimate the cost of Concrete Porch Repair is to call a Hydrocrete Pumping company and have them come out and give you an estimate. Otherwise you'll have to use the old fashioned method of Time and Material. Take the cost of your material, plus the cost of the time to perform the labor.


Answer by  Matt97 (42)

You would have to measure the porch and come up with the height, width, and length. Then multiply all three of them, and that will get you the area of the porch. From there you multiply that by the cost of the concrete and labor.
