  • Not if the materials are 1450. Where I live the laborers (contractors) always double the materials cost and that is what they charge.

  • I paid $300 for a slab that is 3'x6', so if you went by the price per sq ft, then yes that would be a good price.

  • I agree. You need to get more estimates. That seems high to me!
