Estimated Concrete Volume

13.481 cubic yards

364 cubic feet

Estimated Weight of Concrete

## 24.2 tons

Covering 728 sq. ft. at 6" depthChange dimensions

Optional 10% extra concrete

for waste allowance

10% = 1.35 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 14.83 cubic yards

for waste allowance

10% = 1.35 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 14.83 cubic yards

## Cost Estimate for 26'x28' 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 728 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

**$2,117.50****$2,117.50**

for 605 x 80lb bags

## Truck Cost Estimate

Ready-mixed concrete costs on average $108.22 per cubic yard delivered. Using a concrete truck to cover 728 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

6.5 x $17.00 = $110.50

$1,458.97 + $110.50 =

*6 inch pours and under.

**Cost assumes subbase and general prep is done.

**$1,458.97**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.

6.5 x $17.00 = $110.50

$1,458.97 + $110.50 =

**$1,569.47****$1,569.47**

## 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 26x28 area at 6 inches deep, you would need approximately **19.14 tons** or **13.48 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 **728 sq ft area**, this may roughly cost **$407.68** for wire mesh, **$2,184.00** for thicker wire rebar mesh and **$94.64** for fiber mesh.

How to Calculate Concrete Amount for 26x28 x6"

26 * 28 = 728 sq ft

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

728 * 0.5 = 364 cu ft

364 / 27 = 13.481481481481

= 13.481 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight

13.481481481481 * 3590 = 48398.52 lbs

Density of concrete used 2130 kg/m

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

728 * 0.5 = 364 cu ft

364 / 27 = 13.481481481481

= 13.481 cu/yd
