Due to the many variables in decorative concrete projects, we are unable to give you a firm estimate without first speaking to you and/or seeing the project site. You can, however, get a rough idea of costs for your project from the information below. Click here to schedule a free estimate.
Variables Affecting Decorative Concrete Costs
The size of your project is an important factor in price per square foot. In general the larger your project, the lower the price per square foot. We have minimum square footages for new concrete (125 SF) and decorative concrete (450 SF). There is no minimum for countertops or accessories. Projects over 1000 SF will have much lower prices per square foot than are outlined below. Please call for special pricing for large projects!
We serve clients across the Front Range, Colorado and surrounding states. Our mobilization costs will be factored in to your project estimate. These include costs for fuel based on mileage from our headquarters. For new concrete and/or concrete tear-out, variables like proximity to the concrete batch plant and dumping costs will be factored in. Mountain charges may apply.
Access to your job site is a big factor. We may need access for equipment like trailers, Bobcats, wheelbarrows, pumps, grinders, and more. For exterior projects, sloping land may incur additional costs for grading, digging, pouring thickened edges, etc.
Spalling concrete or cracked concrete will require repair prior to refinishing and repair costs will vary depending on the condition. Repair costs are not included in the estimates below. Special care needed to protect existing landscaping or structures may also add to your cost.
Temperature and moisture are big factors that affect how long it will take to complete your project. Concrete takes much longer to cure and/or dry in cold, wet conditions. Some outdoor jobs that can be completed in one day during the summer, might take multiple trips during colder weather, thus increasing your cost.
Complexity of Finish
More complex patterns, colors and finish options will add to your cost. Extra charges for custom saw cuts/engraving, hand-staining, accent medallion stamps, and other specialty finishes will apply.
There are many other factors that can affect the cost for your project, such as the need for caissons, steps, thickened edges, supports for posts, and special drainage considerations. Please inform us of any special circumstances that will affect your project.
Decorative Concrete Cost Ranges
The cost estimates below are ranges for residential projects under 1000 SF. Remember, there are many variables affecting cost, so please call to understand costs for your specific situation. If you have a commercial project, please call for commercial pricing.
Tearing Out Old Concrete
For up to 250 SF, our cost for tearing out concrete is just under $3/SF. Beyond 250 SF, the cost varies between $1.75-$2/SF. Considerations such as thickness and rebar will affect the cost.
Pouring New Concrete
Our minimum cost for pouring new concrete is $1800 (which covers up to 125 SF). If your project is between 125-200 SF the total cost will likely be around $2000. Above 200 SF, the price per SF starts around $10/SF, and drops to approximately $6/SF above 800 SF. If you want to add color to the concrete mix, you can expect to add between $.75-$2.25/SF, depending on color. We can apply a stamped texture with color to new concrete for a total cost of $11-$15/SF, depending on size.
Resurfacing Existing Concrete
The following estimates apply to projects between 450 SF and 1000 SF. Please call us for an estimate if your project is larger than 1000 SF.
Acid Stain: $3.50-$6.50/SF (includes prep, grinding, staining, sealing)
Spray or Texture Trowel Overlay: $3.50-$9/SF (includes prep, overlay, standard color/stain, sealer)
Stamped Overlay: $9-$15/SF (includes prep, overlay, stamp, standard color/stain, sealer)
Polyaspartic/Resin/Industrial Coatings: $4-$6/SF (includes prep, coating, color/chips)
Polishing: $5-$10/SF (includes prep, grinding, polishing, color, densifier)
Concrete Countertops: $70-$125/SF (no minimum and includes concrete, stain, polyaspartic finishes)
Cleaning & Sealing Concrete
We can clean and re-seal your decorative concrete for a cost range of $0.90-$2.25/SF. We thoroughly clean and pressure wash the concrete, then we apply solvent-based sealer with slip resistance.
