20x20 parking pad price expectation

What would someone expect to pay for a 20 x 20 concrete parking pad? Driveway is limestone if it matters.

I am in the planning stages of doing this in the spring and kinda need s ballpark figure for when I start calling around.

Around here it is $6.50/sq ft.
Concrete seems to be really regional on pricing though.

From what I have read, that's dependent on the base. 4" would be on the thin side. A lot of regions call for 6-8" on driveways and garages.

It will just be for a car and truck but I don't want it on the thin side.

20x20 is probably the biggest i can go without going into the downward slope of the driveway which will stay gravel.

Around here with minimal grade work @ 4" thick, 3500 PSI concrete, #4 rebar 18" on center both ways, light broom finish that would run 2000.

Around $1000, maybe more if metal was put in it.

But I have several friends that do concrete so that would be pizza and beer type thing. One of them keeps bugging me to get a pad done under the processor actually. I just haven't had the $3k to spend just yet.

Concrete was $125/yard last I priced it this summer.

I would do 6" if you are in an area that freezes hard. Even better is a thicker edge too. My patio was the last concrete work I was involved in, we did it 6" in the center and 12" on the edges. It's about 10 years old and has held up great.

Is it staying "just a parking pad" forever? Or is it one of those long term projects that starts as a pad, then eventually a carport, then one day a garage?

About $1/square foot if you set up the foundation yourself and buy the guy running the truck a burrito.

$10 a ft or above around here, and that's just the rebar and concrete. Excavation and gravel would probably be $2-3k.

I want to say my garage slab set me back around 5600 for a 24x24 with footer. Footer was put in a bit deeper and wider for 2 story build, has a 300 sq. foot room above the garage.

Nate, you have $925 in mud there @20x20 6” thick and $125/yard right? #4 bar is cheap and that other $75 might cover it if you have free lumber for forms and clean rock to finish grade with. Sadly no pizza and beer money left

Generally speaking, 27 cubic foot per cubic yard. 20x20x.5 is 200 cu/ft. /27 is 7.4 yards, that fits on one truck without short load charge so likely under a grand in concrete assuming most places are between 115 and 125/yard of concrete
A big variable in all of this is the grade and base. If it has been a driveway for many years and is sturdy and just so happens to be about a half a foot low that is ideal. Unlikely. Are you going to have the contractor cut out the existing area and prepare it informant or are you capable of doing any of these things. You can probably get concrete done for 5-7 dollars a square foot depending on where you are if you can do any of the prep work before hand and have the pour set up. All depends on your free time/money balance and access to tools/buddies that know anything/how handy you are. Cheaper even in bfe and more in a metro type area

I just got a quote on a 20x40 pad 6” thick here in WV.
It was $5sq ft including site prep.

4" is not thin. That is the standard for millions of garages and driveways. Unless you are dealing with shit concrete, shit installers, and are parking larger than normal consumer vehicles on it, 4" is just fine. The only thing I do on all of the flat work that will be driven on is thicken the edges that will be driven over. Take it down to about 8" about 12" wide at the edges to slow down wash out that leaves the edge of the slab unsupported.

I just got a driveway done and it was about $6/sq-foot including site prep. This was in BFE California but the contractor was a 'neighbor'.

In my case, the driveway was over existing 40 year old hard pack dirt so only a light scrape was needed.

The edges are 6" where no traffic is expected to leave and 12" where traffic is expected to leave. The field was 4".

This included wire mesh.

The contractor was comfortable with that.
