I'm thinking about expanidng my dinky patio slab by pouring additional concrete over it and adding additional square footage. The existing slab is about 8X10 - 80 sq ft.

The finished slab will be 14 x 15 - 210 sq ft.

So, 80 sq ft 3 inches thick plus 130 sqft 4 inches thick = ______ cubic yds.

Does 2.5 - 3 cubic yds sound about right?

Since this is located in the back yard in a subdivision, what method would you suggest?

1) Contract it out to someone else.
2) Have a mini-gathering of a few strong backs and a couple of weak minds! :) That would most likely entail a fish fry or BBQ or something...maybe tuna fish sammiches! :eek:
3) Concrete mixing machine (UGH!) or tow trailer. With the trailer I guess it would have to stay out at the street and tote it via wheelbarrow (thus the strong backs!)
Note: I can prepare the site for the pour. It's the actual get the concrete and get it poured that is the problem.

Lemme know what you think. What has been your experience?
Thanks
Mike

Good feedback...

Thanks for your thoughts. Yeah, I was gonna beat the heck out of the existing slab to make some chunks fly so the new stuff would have a place to grab ahold.

Hammerdrill, huh? UGH. Maybe ComeFrom? is right afterall! :)

I'm still thinking on it.

Thanks for the feedback. Y'all brought some good things to think about/consider. I think I will give this project some additional thought and get a couple of bids from local contractors and see what they suggest.
Thanks again
Mike
