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 Sono-tubes
  • 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:

  1. Square or Rectangular Slabs
  2. Round Slabs
  3. Concrete Walls
  4. Concrete Footers
  5. Square Columns
  6. Round Columns
  7. Concrete Stairs and Steps
  8. 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 pre-mixed 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 Meet-Mr-Concrete.

Learn how I check the sub-grade 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.

Kryton is pleased to announce that the company’s very own CEO, Kari Yuers, has been appointed to the Council of Governors for the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade (GVBOT).

Kari was elected to the board in 2015 and served in several positions over the years. Most recently, she served as chair of the organization from 2019 to 2020.

At the start of her term in November 2019, Kari had laid out three key goals she wanted to dedicate the efforts of the board to. Those were the continued building of Greater Vancouver’s competitive advantage, championing gateway infrastructure, and supporting collaboration and relationship-building with others to support economic growth.

Those goals didn’t change when the pandemic hit. Instead, they became even more critical to the survival of the Greater Vancouver business community, which the GVBOT rallied to support. Working together under Kari’s direction, the GVBOT advanced a great number of initiatives. Those included the creation of the economic recovery plan to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on local businesses, the launch of the Scale-up Centre for SMEs to help high-potential firms overcome barriers to growth, and transforming the Women’s Leadership Council to the Diversity and Inclusion Council to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion and to enhance business innovation.

“I am honored to have served as Chair of the Board of Trade, particularly through such challenging times. When I laid out my mandate, I spoke about the importance of building off our strengths and embracing technological change and innovation,” said Kari. “I am inspired by the resilience and grit that the members and staff of the GVBOT have shown over the past year. I look forward to continuing to serve the business community as a member of the Council of Governors and working together to strengthen the community further.”

Kari was inducted to the Council of Governors on April 7 at the virtual 2021 Governors’ Gala and Rix Awards ceremony. As last year’s gala was canceled due to the pandemic, the GVBOT also celebrated the appointment of Lori Mathison to the Council of Governors in 2020.

When you think of concrete, you probably visualize a boring, grey slab.

Not many people associate concrete with color, but with the help of aesthetic treatments, it can really become a true work of art.

Before you start your next colored concrete project, it’s important to understand the advantages and ingredients involved.

Key benefits

1. Enhancing the appearance of your yard

The first and most obvious benefit of colored concrete is its aesthetic appeal. Whether you’re incorporating it into your new driveway or backyard patio, you’d be surprised at the difference a simple pop of color can make to your yard. 

But beauty isn’t its only benefit. 

2. Extra protection

The aesthetic treatments used to give colored concrete its pigment also provide a practical, wear-resistant coating and a beautiful finish. This will help your gorgeous slab maintain its fresh look over time, protecting it from weather and the damage of day-to-day use.

Understanding the two techniques

When it comes to concrete coloring, there are two main techniques: 

1. Stirring the colorant into the concrete mix itself 

This mixing technique is most commonly used in projects that desire one solid color. It works by mixing in a powdered pigment made up of inorganic minerals into the ready mix. This pigment is oftentimes made of chromium oxides and iron. 

2. Stamping the concrete

Concrete stamping, on the other hand, is used for projects that require special patterns or designs. This method involves layering colorant on top of fresh concrete then stamping it with texturing molds. This colorant is either made up of synthetic or natural pigments.

Synthetic pigments

Synthetic pigments are made up of metallic oxides and are created through industrial processes. During these processes, minerals (the raw material) are refined to change their physio-chemical properties.

These physio-chemical properties are what link each metallic oxide to their specific color. Cobalt oxide, for example, is a metallic oxide used to create blue concrete.

Natural pigments

Natural pigments are derived from mineral deposits, and like synthetic pigments, they’re made up of metallic oxides and hydroxides. Iron is most commonly used to apply this pigmentation.

Get prettier, longer-lasting concrete by coloring it. At Port Aggregates, our professional concrete contractors are highly skilled in creating beautiful, precise pours every time. Contact us today to request a quote for your next project!
