Pricing information-

Concrete Pricing:

We have a lot of Requests about getting an estimate for how much a job may cost. We try to respond to every quote request and visit the site in person promptly but unfortunately we cant make it to everyone at a convenient time. We wish we had more hours in the day!

As well as Job quotes, sometimes you may just need a rough price guide in order to check your budget, or some information about what a product can do, or the method to do a job.

We have put together some information here about concrete and earthmoving work that will hopefully help you out. For information about our other services such as landscaping  and property presentation, please check out those links. As every job is different it is very difficult to give an exact price without seeing the job but We can give some basic information about pricing that can be used to get a close estimate.

Basic concrete prices:

  • Plain grey concrete = $55-$85 per square meter
  • Exposed aggregate concrete = $85-$100 per square meter
  • Concrete resurfacing = $35-$45 per square meter
  • Cleaning and resealing = $12-$15 per square meter

These prices above ^ include the cost of labour and materials to complete the job.

  • Large decks, *labour only = $15 per square meter
  • Waffle pod slabs, *labour only = $17-$22 per square meter

* labour only prices do not include the cost of concrete or steel, only the labour to lay and finish the concrete. All inclusive prices which would include all labour, material, concrete, steel, earthworks etc for waffle pods and large decks can be supplied if you send us the plans for us to quote. You can send Plans to: brisbaneconcrete@live.com.au

 

In order to calculate area in square meters the basic method is to measure the length x width (in meters) and the answer is the area in square meters. Check out these graphics for help-

If the area is an odd shape, sometimes its easier to break it up into pieces that are easy to measure then add them together to get a total. Check out this example-

Prices are different for every concrete job. There are various factors that affect the price. These include things like-

  • Site conditions: for example a site with a large slope or lots of vegetation creates added problems.
  • Earthworks: for example a job site may need lots of excavation and removal of excess soil.
  • Drainage: for example a job site may need additional drainage or plumbing in order to be used.
  • Site access: for example a job site may have very limited access that affects the work.
  • Traffic: for example a job on a main road may need traffic control.
  • Types of concrete finishes: for example a job that has many areas and different finishes may need to be completed in a certain way that affects the amount of time needed to complete the job.

For example the basic price of a plain grey driveway that is 60 square meters may be $60 per sq meter

60sq/m  x $60 = $3600

Now if that same job needed a large amount of earthmoving and soil taken away it could add $500-$1000 to the final price. Or if the driveway was on a very steep slope or hard to get to then a concrete pump might be needed which could add $500-$750 to the price.

Much like buying in bulk, the price of concrete work goes down as the square meter area gets bigger, the price of larger jobs can work out to be lower, per square meter, than smaller jobs.


Online Quote:

As we have mentioned previously, it is sometimes hard to get out to every job to do a quote. Because of this we have introduced and online quote feature.

We can give you an online quote that will be very close to a final quote price. This can save you time and money as we can get a price back to you quickly without us having to visit and you can check this quote againts your budget. This lets you know quickly and easily what kind of money the job will cost and any ideas or problems we can see. After the initial quote. If you decide you would like to move forward or discuss the fine details then we can arrange a meeting where any minor changes can be made and give a final quote price.

If you would like to use our online quote service then we need as much information as possible. If there are plans for the job then send those. If no plans then we need to know certain things which will effect the price. Please follow these steps.

1.What type of Job is it?

  • Driveway
  • House slab  {conventional or waffle type slab}
  • Footpath
  • Patio
  • Shed
  • Footings or piers
  • Walls
  • Pool area
  • Cleaning and resealing
  • Decorative concrete spray {spraycrete}

 

2. What type of concrete?

  • Plain grey
  • Exposed aggregate. Examples of exposed aggregate can be found on this site and full color charts can be found via google searching the concrete suppliers such as -Hanson, Boral, Holschim
  • Coloured concrete {Again different companies have different colour ranges, check their websites for examples}
  • Concrete resurfacing

 

3. How big is the area?

We use the square meter measurements to estimate on all types of jobs including new concreting, demolition and removing old concrete, concrete resurfacing and cleaning and resealing.

  • To get the square meters just measure the length x width, in meters. For odd shapes just break the area down into smaller sections that are easier to measure and add the parts together for a total. It doesnt have to be an exact number, just get it as close as possible.

Earth moving and excavation pricing information.

Our Earth Moving division is primarily based around limited access machines and .5 to 5t Combos. Many existing houses and new houses on small blocks have a very limited area in which to work. Often jobs require material to be excavated or moved up the sides of houses, down pathways, through gates and doors and dodging trees and buildings. These jobs are to big to do by hand but there is not enough room for a larger machine.

Our machines can fit through areas under 1 m wide while still having the power to get the job done quickly.

For the jobs that have more space, we can supply larger machines and combos to get the job done faster.

As well as earth moving machines,we can also arrange removal of waste with tip trucks or site skip bins. We can also deliver materials like soil, mulch, fill, gravel at competitive rates.

We can quote on individual jobs but generally earthmoving machines are hired by the hour and come with a licensed and experienced operator.

Here is a Pricelist for earthmoving and excavation machines.
