On average, a 20×20 slab costs $2,468. The cost per square foot is between $4 and $8 on average. However, most homeowners spend on average between $5.35 to $6.17 per square foot for both materials and installation. The final cost depends on slabs size, thickness, and any special reinforcement, e.g., wire mesh or rebar.
This is dependant on the purpose, but the minimum should be 5cm. If the slab is thicker, this means it will be stronger, so for residential constructions, we normally go off the minimum of 10cm for a concrete shed or house slab.
Similar to laying driveways, this will be affected by the size, width, accessibility and type of the proposed slab. The average cost for a company to do slab work would be around $60 per m2. However this can vary from $50-85/m2 depending on thickness.
Concrete driveways last longer than the asphalt driveways. However, concrete is relatively expensive to install compared to some materials. Besides, concrete can easily crack during winter or suffer damage in case you use the wrong de-icing products. On the other hand, Asphalt is flexible and less likely to crack. However, it requires more maintenance than concrete.
Adding a layer of concrete over existing concrete doesn’t join the two because the cement in the concrete doesn’t have a natural bonding agent. That means the concrete sits as a separate layer on top of the existing one. Thus, it doesn’t produce a robust and serviceable floor. Additionally, when you bond a block of
4 inches. For a non-reinforced pavement, a thickness of four inches is standard for passenger car driveways. However, for 5 or 6 inches thickness, reinforcement is necessary, and such breadth works well for heavier vehicles.
Residents in Victoria can expect to pay around $2,000 for a standard 30 m2 concrete driveway or approx $65/ m2 which includes both materials and labour cost. The overall cost will depend on the overall size of the job, preferred finish and decorations. If your driveway is sloped for example, this can easily add another $10per m2
