Concrete porch cost

Hi there, I've got a 10x4 concrete porch that is cracking and needs some TLC. It's low to the ground, only 1 step off the ground. I got a quote to basically redo it all from scratch with new concrete for $2500. Fair price?

Thanks!

Maybe a picture would help

Depends on what type of concrete you're going for.

Regular is ~$5-7 per square feet, stamped $11ish per and so forth.

Depends on the number of steps, the depth of your porch etc.

Sounds high to me (but maybe not for Toronto). I just got a quote for 390 sq/ft of demo/remove/rebuild sidewalk @ 5" thickness for $5900.

2500 is a good price to re do it all from scratch with new concrete; thats a lot of old cement to dispose of. Its high if the existing concrete is being repaired and then resurfaced.

If the old cement can be repaired Sakrete makes a great resurfacer product called Flo-coat, its about double the price of most concrete resurfacers and a bugger to work with as it sets up so quick.....great strong & durable finish though and there's pigment available to get a wide range of colours. My son works for a hardscaper as summer job and they only use this product on old porches.....think they use top & bond to repair damaged areas first.

This. Flo-coat is a great product. I'd recommend chipping down to the desired thickness for the repour. About 4". Then apply a bonding agent ( Sika Armatec 110 is fantastic), then use flo-coat
