Garage and breezeway footers
am planning to build a 40' x 24' Garage with a 10' covered breezeway attaching it that will connect to the house.I need to have a total of 50' x 24' footer dug, poured, block layed and concrete slab poured. I am having trouble getting an idea of the cost on the internet. I would like to know cost before interviewing contractors.This will be built in western PA>

That's because it's impossible to get a cost on the internet. What makes you think that the price would be right compared to having contractors come in from your area to give you a price?

Get at least 3 quotes, though more is better. Based on their given prices and references you can determine what is fair for your specific job.

There are lots that play into a price quote including staging areas, site access (pumped or chuted conc), timelines, existing work loads, and much more. While you may get a price on the internet there is absolutely no guarantee it will be of any use to your specific project.
