I need the advice/input of a mason. I am in the process of getting quotes for a cement slab for a shed and was recently surprised/shocked by the price quoted, $3,600. The details for the slab are as follows:

Remove approx. 4 - 6" of ground due to a slope to level the ground.
Pour a 10'X14' pad with a smooth draw finish.
Install 6X6 wire mesh.

4" thick was quoted at $3,460
6" was $3,640

Is this estimate right on or really high? I have a few more people coming to give estimates. Also, I just don't have the time to do this myself. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It seems a little high, but not outragous.

Sounds like alot to me depending on what you can buy concrete for its about $100 A YARD here.

I bet you and a buddy could do the job in an afternoon for under $1000.

If I was closer I would charge $2000 aprox!!!!

Illegal aliens from the south who work for sub-standard wages have put most stonemasons out of work or out of business.
