it all depends on the hardness of the concrete. if your cutting river rock, $1 per in ft is fair. but for limestone $1 per LF up to 6" is a good deal. look at the agrogate to see what your cutting

There is going to be a difference in pricing for certain areas of the country.

We just did a project at the Port of Seattle and found a number of things that would affect our pricing. First, the aggregate is super tough, and second the slurry is considered a hazardous waste and has to be disposed of as such. I hired a local cutter to help with the workload and after reading their invoice I see that they regularly charge in the .55-.65 / inft for gas slab sawing (I wish I'd known that when I bid it haha).

However in Florida there is no union presence and you can expect to see pricing as low as .20-.30 / inft. However cutting inside is almost always electric (thus slower production) and you can expect to see an additional .10 -.20 / inft.

Places like Houston, Baton Rouge, and St. Louis, you can expect to pay more because of the river gravel commonly used their pours.

If anyone needs rough information on pricing for cutting projects feel free to PM me or drop me an email. Also If a large cutting job finds you I'd be interested in bidding.

Unless they misquoted it, but I doubt it as they have been doing it awhile. If I get the bid I will let you know. Its in, now im just waiting... As someone else told me, throw enough chit against the wall and eventually something will stick. Its been REALLY slow around here and its starting to hurt badly.

Well you got out cheap. Places around here usually charge between .50 - $1.00 per inch foot. So a 4" slab cut would be between $2.00 and $4.00 a lineal foot.

A $1.00 per lineal foot is cheap and I mean cheap. If that is true, your getting a killer deal. I don't know how that company will make any money. 700 LF is a lot of cutting. I would like to hear how this one finishes out.

I just tonight put a bid in on about 350' of 18" wide trench (4" thick) as well as some other items. I got a quote of $1 per linear cut foot , so that would be $700 for the trench, plus $1.50 per cross cut. It will be inside with a slab saw. $6 a LF sounds crazy, but if thats what you can get all the power to ya!

It's approximately 1.5 minutes per square foot. This does not include equipment or load out.

Well depending what type of Saw Cutting Machine you use, whether hydraulic or electric, I would say about $6.00 a LF for the cut. Might call your local saw cutting outfit and see what they charge for inside saw cutting.

On the concrete side, I would say in the neighborhood of around $2-$5 a SF depending on a lot of factors, if you’re removing by machine or all hand work, how you get it out of the building.

Removing the concrete, it takes about 0.0147 man hour per square foot, plus load time. If you’re using a machine it will go down.

Anyone know an easy formula for bidding on cutting a trench in a slab. I am working a job and they asked me to cut a trench for plumbers. And to let them know what they owe me. I always try to be fair and competitive but I have not ever cut a trench like this. It is 6" concrete that is going to be cut one time 144' long. It is up against the back of a building and will be a 3' trench and I will have to breakup and haul off. Any advice would help Thanks.
