Concrete Knowledge that Adds Up.

General Chipping’s Concrete Calculator Takes the Guesswork Out of Projects

Have you ever found yourself asking “How much concrete do I need for this job?” — but never really coming to a solid conclusion? Between varying blends that allow certain types of concrete to go further than others, and unusual dimensions associated with many pours, a fair amount of estimation goes into many DIY (and even professional) projects. General Chipping’s concrete calculator is here to help.

Our concrete calculator allows you to input basic dimensions, along with the quantity of products you plan to pour, and work out the cubic yards of material it will take to make it happen. And if you want to take things a step further, you can even calculate what that project will cost you.

Of course, our team is big on educating others about the whys and hows associated with concrete work. While you’re inputting your concrete project’s info, let’s also take a moment to look into the reasons proper calculations make a difference.

Why is it Important to Answer the Question “How Much Concrete Do I Need for This Project”?

Whether you’re digging in on DIY concrete work at your own home or planning out a big client project, it’s never a good idea to go in blind. Here are a few reasons using a concrete calculator makes sense:

  • Cost Savings: Mix too much concrete for a project and you’re out the money it took to blend that excess. Mix too little and you’ll wind up having to create more to make up the difference, likely winding up with excess again. Knowing exactly what you’ll need for your work makes budgeting a whole lot easier.

  • Increased Efficiency: Pausing your work to blend more material at the last minute — or having to contend with excess concrete once your pour is over and done with — requires more time and effort than it’s worth. Taking a few minutes to plan your pours out ahead of time can help your entire project run more smoothly.

  • Less Wasted Material: Too much left-behind material following a pour can place even the best crews in a pickle. Remember, that concrete won’t last terribly long inside your mixing drum. Your team will either have to find a quick project it can pour, or discharge the excess material and have it hauled off to be disposed of or recycled.

  • Added Peace of Mind: For most concrete and construction projects, success requires many moving parts coming together in just the right way. When you can eliminate potential problem areas and streamline operations, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

How Can You Save Money on Concrete Work?

The financial element is one of the main reasons to use a concrete calculator for your projects. Even so, it isn’t the only way to save. Here are some other considerations to help you keep costs in check:
