Figuring Concrete Quantity
One of the biggest problems prior to placing concrete is determining
the correct amount of concrete for the job. To make this task a little
easier we have created a useful Concrete Calculator. Simply plug in
the correct length, width and depth of your project and click on the
"Calculate Now!" button. We will provide you with an approximation of
the total amount of concrete you will need for your project.
You will also want to add 5% more concrete to your "Total Yardage Needed" in order to allow
for spillage, waste, overexcavation, and other causes. We have taken this into account also in our Concrete Calculator, providing you with the "Total Concrete Yardage Plus 5% Extra".
Simply provide your results to the concrete dispatcher and we can conveniently arrange to have the necessary concrete delivered to your location.
You can also figure the amount of concrete you will need manually by using the following formula:
((Length x Width x Depth)/27 cubic feet) x 1.05 = Total Concrete Needed Plus 5% Extra
