The cost of a concrete walkway depends on various factors, such as the size of the project and the amount of concrete needed. Comparing prices for different projects is essential, as larger projects tend to have a lower cost per square foot.
For example, if you paid $10 per square foot for a large driveway (400 square feet) two years ago, the total cost was $962.50. Now, you’re considering installing a sidewalk (150 square feet) from the driveway to the patio. The sidewalk requires 2.5 yards of concrete at $175 per yard, totaling $657.50. The concrete cost for the driveway was $2.40 per square foot, while for the sidewalk, it’s $4.38 per square foot.
When comparing the cost per square foot, it’s clear that the concrete for the sidewalk is more expensive. Additionally, you need to consider labor, miscellaneous consumables, rentals, and other materials, which can affect the overall cost.
To give you an idea, customers have paid between $25 and $19 per square foot for gray sidewalks, depending on various conditions. For a 500-square-foot sidewalk, you can expect to pay around $20 to $15 per square foot.
It’s important to note that tackling your concrete project in multiple phases over several years can increase the overall cost. Therefore, considering the volume of the project is key to saving money.
