New Online Tool Simplifies Concrete Calculations

Monday, May 18, 2009

Comment | More

Concrete calculations just became easier with ConcreteNetwork.com’s new online concrete calculator. This easy-to-use calculator can process calculations for concrete slabs, footings and columns, and displays its results in cubic yards and the amount of bags needed for a specific project.

Determining the amount of concrete needed for a particular concrete project is a daily occurrence for contractors. Ordering too much can lead to a loss in profit, while not ordering enough can lead to unexpected fees and temporarily place projects on hold. The calculator can solve that problem as long as the project dimensions are known.

For concrete slabs, contractors can input information such as desired thickness, width and length of the project. For footings, dimensions include depth, width and length. Contractors can also input desired diameter and height for columns. Once calculated, results quickly display how many cubic yards of concrete are needed and how many bags of concrete are needed by size.

The calculator also provides links to other useful resources on ordering concrete, locating a local ready mix supplier, special considerations for concrete slabs and footings, and other information.

Established in 1999, The Concrete Network’s purpose is to educate consumers, builders and contractors on popular decorative techniques and applications. These include stamped concrete, stained concrete floors, concrete countertops and polished concrete. Over 10 million people visit ConcreteNetwork.com per year to research, get ideas and to find a contractor.
