How Much Does It Cost To Build A House? A blog about how much does it cost to build a house around the United States.

I recently received an email from a reader with some great questions about the cost of cement and how much concrete costs. He was looking to build a new home and was looking at options for making it more affordable. He’s in the process of meeting with contractors and getting bids on his new home, and he wants to know what the average cost of cement is per square foot.

To help him out, I’ve put together this post that will answer his questions, as well as give you some general information on house cement prices. Hopefully, you’ll learn something (or at least find the information you need) when you read through it.

The average cost of building a house in the United States is $95.09 per square foot. The national average cost to build a new house comes out to about $296,526, which would mean a typical 2,000 square foot home would cost about $592,000. Of course, that price can vary significantly from city to city and state to state with land costs playing a major role.

So how much does concrete cost? According to HomeAdvisor, the average concrete foundation costs around $4,600 for a 1,200-square foot home. Building a garage or basement can be quite expensive as well with an average of around $8,500 for a garage and $10,000 for a basement. The price of concrete depends on many factors, including where you’re located and the type you’ve ordered. Ready-mix concrete – which is premixed at a plant before delivery – costs between $3.50 and $7 per square foot while reinforced concrete – also known as rebar – ranges from $6 to $18 per square foot on average.

With these numbers in mind, it’s not hard to see why so many people are choosing to build shipping container homes today. The average cost of building a shipping container home is just over

The price of cement is one of the major factors in the cost of concrete. As you can see from the above infographic, cement is the largest material cost, and as such, prices fluctuate greatly with demand. In recent years (2009-2012), cement prices have been on a steady climb, with prices reaching $113 per cubic yard in 2012, up nearly 20% from 2009’s $95 per cubic yard.

Ultimately, the price you pay depends on your local market, but in general, you should expect to pay anywhere between $85-$125 per cubic yard for concrete delivered.

Cement prices fall for 2nd consecutive month

Cement prices have been falling for the second consecutive month in February. A 50-kg bag is now sold at an average price of P205, based on the monthly survey of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). In January, a 50-kg bag was priced at an average of P206.

Compared to the same period last year, cement prices are higher by 12.1 percent. The PSA noted that there were no changes in prices in the National Capital Region and some provinces.

In terms of regions, cement remained unchanged in the NCR and Ilocos Region. Prices also fell in Central Luzon and CALABARZON while they rose in Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula and Northern Mindanao.

The recent price increase of cement in the regions has no impact on Metro Manila, according to major cement players.

“For the meantime, there’s no price increase yet in Metro Manila,” said Ramon Ang, president and CEO of Eagle Cement Corp. “I guess we will still stick to the retail prices.”

Ang said that he is not aware of a possible increase in cement prices. Eagle Cement is one of the country’s leading cement manufacturers with a total installed capacity of 11 million bags per day.

“I’m not sure if they would need to increase the price,” he said. “But I think they will follow our lead.”

Holcim Philippines, Inc., one of the biggest cement players in the Philippines, also has no plans to change its prices.

“No changes in price for NCR as we are still following our previous pricing strategies,” said Holcim vice president for marketing Jonathan Moya. “We will have to look at all angles before making any decision.”
