Concrete Supply FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right concrete supply for your job

1. How much does it cost to order concrete?

Concrete prices are generally affordable across Australia. You can expect to pay $119 to $150 per cubic yards. There may be extra costs depending on the distance for delivery. Most concrete supply companies offer delivery up to 32 kilometres.

When it comes to pouring concrete on-site, you can expect to pay between $5 and $10 per square foot. Coloured, stamped and stained concrete costs more where you may expect to pay between $8 and $20 for installation.

Obviously, ready mix concrete is the easiest and most economical option you can use when pouring a concrete slab, building a patio, paving a driveway, maintaining a sidewalk or adding steps.

In addition to concrete supply prices, these factors can also increase the cost of your project:

  • Grading the land
  • Preparing the sub-base
  • Installing any reinforcements
  • Pumping and finishing the installation
 

2. What concrete strength do I need?

The inherent strength and flexibility of concrete means you can adapt its durability based on the water to cement ratio. This includes how much water, cement, air, sand, gravel and stone aggregate a concrete supplier uses.

However, the minimum measure of strength concrete must have on any project is 2,500 psi to 3,000 psi. Generally, the higher the psi, the better the quality of the concrete.

Concrete used for footings or slabs usually calls for 3,500 psi to 4,000 psi. However, suspended slabs, beams or girders used in bridges require up to 5,000 psi. Similarly, walls and columns are weight-bearing, so they also require up to 5,000 psi, especially in cooler climates.

Besides compressive strength, the ‘strength’ of concrete is also defined by:

  • Tensile strength — The ability of concrete material to resist breaking under tension. Traditionally, concrete has a lower tensile strength but has a higher compressive strength.
  • Flexural strength — The ability of a concrete grade to resist bending when unreinforced. This should be around 10% to 15%, depending on the proportions of the concrete supply mix.
 

3. How to choose the right concrete supplier?

Choosing the right concrete supplier is determined by their quality of service and cost of concrete. However, there are a few other factors you should consider in your decision:

  • Distance to your site — The further the distance between your site and the concrete supplier, the more you’ll pay in extra costs. To minimise costs, it is important to choose a concrete supplier who is within about 30 kilometres. Concrete also needs to be discharged within 90 minutes of being dispatched, which is another crucial reason to have a nearby supplier.
  • Size of available trucks — If the size of your supplier’s concrete truck is too large in comparison to the site, you could encounter some issues when the concrete is being discharged.
  • Site visits — Experienced and reputable concrete suppliers should allow you to check the concrete mixture before it’s poured. They should also be open to you checking the preparation of the site to ensure all specifications are being met.
  • Qualified, professional and expert crew — For successful projects, you need expert contractors who understand how to work well with concrete supplies. They will have a history of working with concrete mixtures and discharge trucks.
