quickly calculate concrete slab and footing pours by entering the depth, width and length to find the number of cubic yards or bags of concrete needed for your project. give these calculations to your ready-mix supplier or use them to estimate how many 40, 60 or 80 lb. bags of concrete to buy.
i have been getting concrete prices all over the place. some say you just need a 4 slab, period. another says 6-8 slab with rebar and a reinforced edge. another said 4 slab with 12x12x12 concrete pier below the slab at each pillar location reinforced with rebar. i want it to be structurally sound.

my question is should i cut the concrete and put down a footing. or would the simpson fasteners work. with the curved patio i will have to put some post in the ground. but i really dont want to cut the concrete if i dont have to. and im wondering if the fasteners will crack the concrete in time. the pergola will be roughly 15x 35.
i had a guy come out to quote me a price on a new pergola. he said that he couldn't attach 6x6 or 8x8 posts to my existing slab, but would have to pour new concrete. is this correct? i know there are base plates to be attached using concrete screws. am i missing something?
