As a new home owner, & horrible at everything related to a house(apt dweller whole life)  I need a larger patio. The house has a 3X3 slab out side the rear door.  I measured & the area I want is 20X12.  I have a few people coming next week to give me quotes, but anyone know a ballpark cost?
The land is flat, free of tree's or stumps, etc. The soil has no issues, no low water table, sinking, things like that.
from the videos I have seen it seems very straight & easy.

Concrete is insane right now. You used to be able to use about $125 per yard of concrete as a good number for a 4 inch pad, but I am seeing some places in the southeast where it's over $250 now. All the builders are eating up the demand with the housing boom.

Do yourself a favor and double check with a paver installation guy on their cost too. Resale value for pavers is actually better. In many places you can get them for $10 -$15 per SQ foot installed depending on your location and likes. The price might be identical to concrete right now and you will get a better look.

I’m in Volusia county. My house had a 12x10 slab. I just had a 24x10 paver patio installed over it. They used 3” thick pavers where the grass was and 1” thick pavers over the slab so it’s all level. Ran right around $2,800 for materials, installation, and they had to move a few sprinklers. Took about 6 weeks for the materials to come in and they finished the install in one day.

NE FL.  I'm not sure about pavers.  I want a solid one piece where there is no grass or dirt anywhere.  I eventually want to install a screened enclosure.  I haven't gotten quotes yet. Been too busy to meet with people.  I hope to have 2 this week.

I'm in the Jax area. If you get quotes you can't deal with let me know and I can have my paver people quote you something. I know you want the solid pad but it might be cost prohibitive right now.

Cheapest quote was $2250 all in for 20X12. Claims 3-4 weeks out, & 1 day job.  Someone I know used this guy for his driveway & was happy.
Pulling trigger.

Is that $2250 for just the concrete, concrete plus pouring and smoothing, or for everything (clearing area, dig down, wire/mesh, form boards,....)

Complete job, including permit & tax.

I've always been warned that property taxes go up with concrete and don't with pavers.

Under 300sqft is ok I'm told. I'm at 240.
