This calculator shows discounts for estimating the cost for a concrete driveway or other concrete laying jobs between 10 and 500 square meters in area, the bigger the job the cheaper the square meter rate. If your job is over 500 square meters give us a call for our best price as we are very efficient on larger jobs.

The calculator is less accurate on small jobs, (under 50 square meters).

If you don't know the area of your job in square meters use our concrete area calculator it will allow you to easily work out the size in square meters even for complex and curved shapes.

The more concrete work you get done at the same time the cheaper the square meter rate even if the thickness and finishes of parts of the job are different.
