All concrete is estimated
in cubic yards. For large concrete jobs—4 cubic yards or more—you can
have the concrete delivered by ready-mix truck. You can also haul fresh
concrete to your site in special 2-cubic-yard trailers provided by concrete
producers. For small- to medium-sized jobs, it’s best to mix your own in
a rented concrete mixer. For very small jobs, you can purchase sacks of
ready-mix that only require you to add water.
To estimate how
much concrete your project requires, enter your project area measurementsrounded
to the nearest foot—into our pop-up calculator. We have included a separate
calculation area for foundation walls. For stem wall with footing, calculate
the footing area and the wall separately and add them together.
