Dec 30, How Many Square Feet In A Yard Of Concrete – Easy To Follow Guide
My guide shows you how many square feet are in a yard of concrete from 1 – 12 inches thickness.
IN ONE CUBIC YARD OF CONCRETE – there is 81 square feet at 4 inches thick.
The amount of square feet you’ll get from a yard of concrete will be determined by how thick (depth) your concrete slab is.
A concrete slab that’s 8′ x 10′ x 4″ thick will take 1 yard of concrete.
How many square feet does a yard of concrete cover at different thicknesses?
The chart below shows you the exact amount of sq. ft. you’ll get @ various depths.
how many square feet in a yard of concrete 4 inches thick?
Most of the concrete floors and slabs I do are 4 inches thick. That’s a normal thickness for most garages, patios, walkways, and shed slabs.
If the concrete slab is 4 inches thick then I’ll get 81 square feet from 1 yard of concrete.
 A 10′ x 10′ concrete slab that’s 4″ thick will take 1.23 yards of concrete
 A 10′ x 12′ concrete slab that’s 4″ thick will take 1.48 yards of concrete
 A 20′ x 20′ concrete slab that’s 4″ thick will take 4.94 yards of concrete
 A 24′ x 24′ concrete slab that’s 4″ thick will take 7.11 yards of concrete
how much concrete do you need?
You can use the chart above to figure how many yards of concrete you need.
Since the chart tells you how many square feet are in 1 yard of concrete at a certain depth, you can use this formula to figure total yardage for your project.
At 4″ thick the formula would look like this:
 Length X Width ÷ 81 = yardage (example 24′ x 24′ = 576 sq. ft. 576 ÷ 81 = 7.11 yards of concrete)
At 6″ thick the formula would look like this:
 Length X Width ÷ 54 = yardage (example 24′ x 24′ = 576 sq. ft. 576 ÷ 54 = 10.66 yards of concrete)
The number you divide by will be determined by the depth. Use the chart above to figure out which number that is for you based off the depth of your slab, patio, driveway, etc.
use this concrete calculator to see how many yards you need
The concrete calculator below will help you determine the correct concrete yardage for your project.
Just type in your Length, Width, and thickness. Use feet and inches if you’re in the USA, (or meter & centimeter) if you use the metric system.

Feb 16, Concrete Yardage Calculators – How Much Do I Need For Any Type of Job
Find the perfect concrete calculator to figure cubic yardage (and cubic meters) for any type of concrete project. Floors, slabs, walls and much more.
Calculate concrete cubic yardage for slabs, walls, footings, columns, stairs, blocks, curbs, and gutters using the many different concrete calculators on this page.
Estimate the volume and weight of concrete you’ll need for any given area.
Figure out how many cubic yards of concrete you need in both US units of measure (feet and inches) and International system of units or metric units (meters and centimeters) of measurement.
LEARN HOW TO INSTALL YOUR OWN CONCRETE SLAB HERE!
The best way (and fastest way) to calculate concrete yardage is using a concrete calculator.
These concrete calculators are very accurate and will help you determine the volume of concrete you need for the type of project you’re doing.
Always add a little extra to the quantity estimated just to be on the safe side.
Rarely is any concrete project perfect and you don’t want to be left short on the amount you need.
You’ll be able to calculate concrete cubic yardage, weight, and how many bags you need for:
 Concrete slabs
 Concrete Walls
 Concrete Footings
 Circular slabs or Tubes
 Columns or Sonotubes
 Concrete Curbs and Gutters
 Concrete stairs
Concrete calculator formula for a slab or floor
If you want to use a formula to calculate concrete volume, I have a whole page like the picture above that shows you a written formula for:
 Square or Rectangular Slabs
 Round Slabs
 Concrete Walls
 Concrete Footers
 Square Columns
 Round Columns
 Concrete Stairs and Steps
 Concrete Curbs and Gutters
Concrete calculators for specific applications
Use the concrete calculators below to help you determine concrete yardage for your specific project.
Use the calculators above for estimating purposes only.
Always double check your calculations when you figure concrete for a project. Not having enough concrete to finish can be both frustrating and problematic.
Concrete is made from aggregate (stone), sand, cement, and water.
You can make your own concrete using the raw materials and my concrete mixing ratio formula or you can buy premixed concrete in bags that you just add water to.
For large projects, ordering concrete from a ready mix concrete company is usually easier and faster.
Learn how to do your own concrete slab by taking my concrete slab course.
The concrete calculator APP for the Iphone and Android smartphone is terrific! I use it daily. The free desktop download is courtesy of MeetMrConcrete.
Learn how I check the subgrade to find the average thickness of a concrete floor on either the floors or slabs calculator page.
When I order concrete from a ready mix company, I always add 1/2 to 1 yard more than what it says on the calculator.
