Concrete Patio� too much$$$??

Posted by cindy24 (My Page) on

We live in Texas and just bought a new home. We are wanting to add a concrete patio (possible stained or stamped, not sure).
14x18 (252 sq. ft.) My estimates I've been getting are $3600 and $3400.

Is that high or reasonable?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Concrete Patio� too much$$$??

It doesn't sound crazy out of line, especially considering that on a patio that small a) you're seeing a good bit of mobilization cost and b) your contractor gets charged a premium when s/he needs way less than a full truckload of concrete. So your per sq ft price would seem high on a 1000+ sq ft patio but not a tiny one like this.
