## Square or Rectangle Concrete Slab

A concrete slab is commonly used as a base element in modern buildings. Often those slabs have steel reinforcement. Commonly, concrete slabs are between 4 and 20 inches thick and are used for a purpose of floor and ceiling construction. Thinner slabs can be used for exterior paving. Before any pour you need to know how much concrete will be needed. Please use the calculator below to give you some estimate of the concrete amount.

## Concrete Footing

A concrete footing is used as a foundation for outdoor structures such as houses, decks or porches. Width of the footings depends upon the type of the soil. A common width of 16 to 20 inches can be used to support a mid range house built on the typical soil. Please refer to your design requirements to get exact measurements.
