In this guide, we will show you how much it costs for concrete reinforcement, rebar or wire mesh. There is no cut-and-dry way to determine the exact cost, so these are meant to serve as guidelines only. For example, the complexity of the job and the height of the work are just two pricing factors. Costs may also vary a lot depending on the site condition and location.

The average cost of reinforcement ranges from $40 to $185 per yard of concrete, (this is a typical engineering requirement depending on complexity and loading). But other services may cost extra; for example, the installation costs $75-$450 per ton depending on numerous factors.
