Concrete Floor Cost

How much does a concrete floor cost?

I'll share with you the concrete floor cost I charge my customers, what's included, and what's not included.

My name is Mike Day, I own Day's Concrete Floors, Inc in North Monmouth, Maine. I've owned my concrete business for 26 years, so I have some experience when it comes to concrete floor prices.

We also do a lot of other decorative concrete applications, you'll be able to find pricing for stamped concrete, stained concrete, and more at the bottom of the page.

What does it cost to pour a concrete floor?Day's Concrete Floors, Inc. pouring a concrete floor


This is for a plain grey concrete floor, poured inside a concrete foundation that I can closely back the concrete truck up to.

Included in my concrete floor cost:

1. 4" thick concrete floor
2. 3000 psi concrete with 3/4" crushed stone
3. Setting grade with a laser
4. Installing board stops in front of door openings
5. Labor to place (install) the concrete
6. Labor to finish the concrete (power trowel or hand finish)
7. Concrete contractor with excellent reputation (make sure you check references)
8. Concrete contractor that has insurance (workers comp. and liability ins. is a must)
9. An experienced crew of men
10. Concrete contractor that puts safety first

Not included in the cost of a basic concrete floor

1. Pumping the concrete - this us usually around $800.00 dollars extra
2. Reinforcement - fibermesh, wire mesh, rebar
3. Vapor barriers
4. Concrete isolation joints
5. Concrete contraction joints - we saw these with an early entry saw for $1.00 per lineal foot
6. Curing compound and Sealing - can add .30 cents per square foot to the cost
7. Concrete admixtures - superplasticizers and accelerators are extra
8. Coloring and staining - see prices for these below
9. Grading of the sub-base - it must be level and compacted
10. Styrofoam - used a lot for radiant heat floors Those are the basics of what's included and not included in my concrete floor costs. For residential concrete floors my $3.00 - $3.50 dollars per sq. ft. cost will remain consistent throughout the year. For commercial concrete floors the cost is anywhere from $.50 - $1.00 dollar per sq. ft. more.

If you're trying to figure what the cost for concrete flooring is in your area, I would suggest calling a local redi-mix concrete company and asking them for 3 referrals. They know who does quality work and who doesn't. Stop by a construction site and talk to the general contractor, they usually get estimates for their concrete floors from more than one concrete contractor.

Most importantly, don't always settle for the lowest bid. A concrete contractors reputation for excellent quality work does figure into the cost of a concrete floor, I know mine does.
