Finding the right Oregon concrete company for your next project
September 20, 2021at4:00 AM
You may not have an easy time finding the right contractor for your next big concrete construction project. There are a lot of details that need to be kept in mind when you’re considering your options among different companies, and if you don’t know what they are before hiring a contractor, there’s a good chance you’ll find that the work you receive doesn’t meet your specifications, quality expectations, or budget. Making that decision from an informed perspective is essential to making sure you get the solid concrete work you need.
As an experienced Oregon concrete company, 3C’s Concrete knows what it takes to be the right choice for a client’s concrete construction job, no matter what it might be. When you’re considering which company to hire, you need to find out how much they charge for the kind of work you need done, how experienced they are with that type of job, and whether the way they generally operate as a company will work for you and your project.
Read on for more information to keep in mind for each of these points.
Costs of concrete work
The cost of your concrete work depends on a few different factors, which means the cost of the same type of project might vary to a degree for different people. Obviously, the type of work itself will affect the cost, but other details like location, the size of the work site, materials, and labor will make a big difference as far as the total amount you’re paying is concerned.
The national average cost of concrete is $125 per cubic yard, though this varies based on region. The gravel or sand subbase will cost between $12-$18 per cubic yard, concrete forms and finishing will cost between $1.50-$2.00 per square foot, and reinforcement to minimize cracking will cost $0.15-$0.30 per square foot.
You’ll also have to consider the cost of clearing and excavating the work site, which is where its location and size come into play. Grading, a part of this process which involves moving dirt out of the way, will cost between $50-$70 per hour, though this price will vary.
Another cost factor to take note of is, of course, the contractor you work with. It’ll be their responsibility to remain within the agreed-upon schedule and budget of the project, and their ability to do this will be substantially informed by their prior experience, results, services, and insurance coverage. Thorough research will help you find a contractor that appropriately suits your needs, and prevent you from hiring one that will significantly inflate your costs.
You should search for reviews, testimonials, and references from the contractor’s prior clients, especially if they received work that’s similar to your planned project. You should also review their portfolio and see what their results look like from a visual standpoint. If you like what you see so far, find out which services they offer, as not all contractors may handle all aspects of the job like we do. From there, you should give them a call and meet with someone from the company in person to get a sense of how well they communicate with you.
