Concrete Calculator: How Much Concrete Do I Need?


Use iSeekplant's concrete calculator to quickly formulate the volume of concrete you need for your job!

Step one - Determine where your concrete will be poured.

Before you start measuring your area, it’s important to work out what kind of space you’re looking to fill with concrete. Our concrete calculator can be applied to three different types of situations:

  • Slab concrete calculator
  • Footing concrete calculator
  • Column concrete calculator

Step two - Measure the dimensions of the area

Once you’ve worked out where you’ll be pouring your concrete, it’s time to take your measurements. The concrete calculator figures out how much concrete you’ll need by computing measurements made in metres. It’s important to accurately measure your site for reliable results, so make sure you double-check your numbers before putting them into the concrete calculator.

Step three - Enter your dimensions into the concrete calculator.

Now that you’ve determined which concrete calculator applies to you and you’ve accurately measured your site, it’s time to enter your data into the concrete calculator. Simply enter the relevant information into their respective fields, press ‘calculate’, then boom - you’ll have the total volume of the concrete you need for your job.

Step four - Receive a cost estimate from the concrete calculator.

Lastly, the concrete calculator can quickly work out the cost of your project. This step is simple - all you need to do is fill out our form with your name, contact information and the volume of concrete you’re chasing. We’ll come back to you with a quote for your job at highly competitive rates.

By using our concrete calculator, you’ll not only understand how much concrete is required for your job but how expensive it will be, too. Simply follow these four easy steps and we’ll determine the volume of concrete that is needed for the project, whatever it may be.

Should I Use Ready Mix Or Bagged Concrete?

It’s important to determine whether or not you’ll need bagged concrete or a ready mix for your job. Bagged concrete is more practical for smaller projects including:

  • Setting posts for fences or mailboxes
  • Pouring small slabs for patios or sidewalks
  • Minor fixes to walkways, steps and foundation walls

Larger projects like driveways, patios and pool decks will almost always need ready mix concrete. Ready mixed concrete from a reliable supplier will be better for jobs such as:

  • Foundation slabs for a house
  • Commercial sidewalks
  • Parking lots
  • Large driveways, patios, pool decks and more

If you aren’t sure what kind of concrete is the right option for your job, give your local concrete supplier a call or use the iSeekplant get a quote tool to receive advice and the best rates.
