            A civil engineer we nearly employed priced in the concrete at 320-euro a square meter. We went to a local friend who is very savvy on all these matters and he told us the price should be betwen 62-65-euro a square meter. We went to our local cement works and were given a price of 63-euro. The ‘pump’ would be extra; although because we found a link with the cement works owner this extra was waived. The reinforcement metal was extra but also by many degrees a lower price than the rip-off merchant we first encountered.

                I’m confused: concrete is usually quoted by volume, e.g. per cubic metre (m3). Ditto reinforced concrete. Please could you check your post and figures, and clarify for us all? Thanks!

                    A square metre and a cubic metre are the same….

                    :D

                            Please allow for expansion joints, if you dont, your driveway will be a mess within 2 years. If you live in Apokoronas I’d be happy to come and give a free estimate.

                                Stalos, check your maths re squares and cubes! (I know, I know, it’s a long time since anyone was at school!)

                                    Sorry, mental lapse. The figures should have been cuM.

                                        what sort of area does a cubic meter cover, re reinforced for a drive? how deep should it be?

                                            moderate traffic 10 cm reinforced is adequate

                                                T.C.P. a slab depth of 100mm (10cm/0.1m) 1cu/m will cover a 10sq/m area.
                                                Minimum recommended depth for a driveway is 100mm and for patios and paths 75mm.
                                                Increasing the driveway depth (and therefore cost) by 20% to 120mm will increase the load bearing capacity by around 50%.

                                                    Does anyone know the mix for filling potholes?

                                                    I’m told that I’ll need "hydraulic concrete" (sets OK under water) and aggregate (stones) of diameter 25 to 35mm. Is sand required or anything else apart from water?

                                                    Where does one buy the ingredients in small quantities (Vamos-Georgioupolis) and what are the Greek words for the stuff?
