How Much Does a Concrete Slab Cost – Nashville, TN

Our goal in this article is to provide you with as much information as possible about the cost of your concrete project. Below is a breakdown of an estimate for a residential concrete slab in five simple steps.

1.) Concrete

  • 8 (cubic yards) * 180 (dollars per cubic yard) = $1,440
