It used to be a call to a concrete contractor or estimator to calculate the area for material use and quote preparation, either on-site or over the phone. Or a time consuming afternoon measuring and calculating an area for material purchase. As the years go by, online user-friendly programs and products have virtually eliminated these ancient processes. A concrete calculator is a simple method of determining the total cubic area in either metric or imperial format based on length, width, height, perimeter, and shape measurements, to determine the total volume of concrete needed for the job at hand. A prospective customer or contractor can enter the proper specs into an online concrete calculator and determine for him or herself the desired information without formally contacting a company. Subsequently, when someone utilizes a concrete calculator from a company’s website, in many cases the information calculated is automatically entered into the company’s database, allowing them details on most common volume expectations for the most common potential jobs.

Most concrete calculators also provide differential quotes by allowing the user to enter specs for slab considerations separate from footing, which can also contribute to the total projected time and cost of the job.

A concrete calculator is a very effective tool for creating efficiency when it comes to obtaining an estimate for concrete installation.
