Answer

Estimated Concrete Volume

1.852 cubic yards

50 cubic feet

Estimated Weight of Concrete

## 3.32 tons

Covering 100 sq. ft. at 6" depthChange dimensions

Optional 10% extra concrete

for waste allowance

10% = 0.19 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 2.04 cubic yards

for waste allowance

10% = 0.19 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 2.04 cubic yards

84 | 80lb Concrete bags |

25 | Small wheelbarrow loads |

12.5 | Large wheelbarrow loads |

## Cost Estimate for 20'x5' x6"

Purchasing ready-mix concrete is by far the easiest way to mix concrete for medium to large projects and can even be used on smaller projects as well. We have provided a cost comparison between ready mix and DIY concrete premix bags to give you a rough ballpark estimate.

## Bag Cost Estimate

Pre-mixed concrete bags cost on average $3.50 per 80lb bag. Using pre-mixed bags to cover 100 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

**$294.00****$294.00**

for 84 x 80lb bags

## Truck Cost Estimate

Ready-mixed concrete costs on average $108.22 per cubic yard delivered. Using a concrete truck to cover 100 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

8.1 x $17.00 = $137.70

$200.41 + $137.70 =

*6 inch pours and under.

**Cost assumes subbase and general prep is done.

**$200.41**Concrete trucks may also charge a **"short load"** fee for partially filled loads. Short load fees are charged at about $17 for every yard not used on the truck.

8.1 x $17.00 = $137.70

$200.41 + $137.70 =

**$338.11****$338.11**

## Concrete Extras

A well-compacted

**subbase**provides a strong foundation for concrete to lay on. We recommend you contact your nearest concrete supplier for their recommendations on whether you need a subbase, base depth, and rock type.With a brief look, a 20x5 area at 6 inches deep, you would need approximately **2.63 tons** or **1.85 cubic yards of gravel**.

**Concrete reinforcing** is also recommended in high traffic areas and medium to large areas. **Wire mesh** on average costs **$0.56 per sq ft** and **fiber mesh** costs **$0.13 per sq ft**.

So for your **100 sq ft area**, this may roughly cost **$56.00** for wire mesh, **$300.00** for thicker wire rebar mesh and **$13.00** for fiber mesh.

How to Calculate Concrete Amount for 20x5 x6"

20 * 5 = 100 sq ft

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

100 * 0.5 = 50 cu ft

50 / 27 = 1.8518518518519

= 1.852 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight

1.8518518518519 * 3590 = 6648.15 lbs

Density of concrete used 2130 kg/m

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

100 * 0.5 = 50 cu ft

50 / 27 = 1.8518518518519

= 1.852 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight
