Cost of concrete slab for patio?

jeszhangJuly 19, 2012

Does anyone know what the cost of a concrete slab would run (by square foot)?

One contractor estimated $4300 for 800 SQF patio. It's far above my budget.

What is the going rate per SF? Or do they quote it another way? I am in Georgia.

Just priced this cheapest price was $8/sqft+ $250 for stamped and colored which is very cheap of up to 380sqft above 380sqft is 6/sqft. It is usually around 12/sqft stamped and colored here but I used to work for a major co and we used them before so I was aware of his price and quality. Near Charlotte NC. just plain old driveway concrete is $3/sq ft from the same co. Check psi and thickness when you get quotes so you know it's apples to apples.

So that is pricey for plain jane concrete. Perhaps your contractor is adding 20% for himself....

But would you really want an 800 sqft patio of gray plain concrete?
