Default Cost of Concrete

Can anyone give me a ball park cost for a yard of concrete? Does the price per
yard go down as the yardage goes up?
My project will take about 68 yards.

Thanks

Using Google as "pennsylvania+concrete+price" yields, for a common variety:

12+ yards, $101.00/yard plus tax from Hartzle's Concrete.

This is a LOT of concrete (6 - 8 truck loads). Are you sure you've got your
figures honed to perfection?

Maybe it's just a small patio, but he knows he's not very good at it.

Why not ask your local dealer? At 68 yard you'll be getting the best price.
Hope you have a lot of help lined up. Pricing also takes into account how
it must be delivered. Just a dump? Pump? What mix?

Where are you pouring this runway?

A cubic yard is L*w*d= /27 assuming the measurements are in feet or
a fraction thereof.

1foot*27foot*1foot = 27 /27 = 1 cubic yard


The first 3 yards (here) cost more because of the haul charge and the price
per yard is less after that.

Maybe it's a sidewalk:

1/3 foot deep (4") x 3' wide x 27' long = 1 cubic yard.

68 yards x 27' = 1,836 feet.

$100 here in KC, Bill. More for a short (less than 9 yds) load.

for 68 yards , you should get a deal.

Thanks for the input.
The project is the replacement of a 310', plus large parking area driveway. The
total area is 5550 sq. ft. On top of that, I am considering having the front
staircase redone plus a small slab for an outdoor shower.

....and no, I am NOT going to do it myself. I plan on going out for bids this
week.

The answer to your question is at the other end of your phone and it
will be accurate for your area. Ask the local pre-mix or talk to the
contractor. Any figure given here will not be what you pay there
whereever it is.

Default Cost of Concrete

Concrete costs vary due to availability of stone, sand,
competition, etc.
All concrete is going up with fuel surcharges, etc on almost a
daily basis.
Admixtures and fibers increase the cost.

All this said, only your local supplier could possibly price the
concrete to you. For a ball park figure, use $100 per cubic yard.
As a home owner, one-time purchaser you will NOT get competitive
pricing. A local concrete man may well buy concrete cheaper than
you can possibly get it. Most suppliers offer an additional 1
1/2% if paid by the xxx of the month. I can't imagine a
contractor sharing that with you.
