Hi,

I am planning on having a concrete patio installed in back yard and have a few questions. The patio will be 23' x 12' with a small 8' x 2' walk leading up to it. I basically have two questions. I have gotten one estimate for $1500 (more estimates will follow shortly). I was wondering if this seems like a fair price? Also he says that steel mesh is not required for this situation. I was under the impression that you need it for stability? Am wrong or is he cost cutting?

Thanks,

Michael

Sounds like a fair price depending upon the prep work and digging before pouring and steel mesh is usually not require for low impact concrete applications like patios.

You can accomplish just about the same horizontal strength application that mesh gives by simply ordering a fibered concrete mix.
