Concrete Concrete Floor Slabs


Concrete construction unit cost for installation of a 5" concrete floor slab, with a simple trowel or broom finish.

This cost covers the cost to pour and finish the concrete. It does NOT include removal of existing concrete, formwork or cleanup.

Unit Size

One square foot of concrete slab area.

Labor Costs

We figure about 95 square feet per hour from a crew consisting of one skilled and two unskilled workers. This includes touch-up grading, reinforcing mesh, placing the concrete, and a finished surface treatment for the concrete slab (screeding, floating, and a simple trowel or broom finish).

Material Costs

The cost includes reinforcing mesh, concrete (about 62 square feet per cubic yard), and a bit of utility wire.

Hard Construction Costs, Typical

$1.91 per square foot

Suggested Quantity

Goldenseal calculates the concrete slab area, and uses it for this unit cost. You can adjust the area if necessary.
