How much does it cost to build a foundation for a house?

A structurally sound home starts with a strong foundation holding its weight and it can be considered the most important part of the house.

Say you have a 1000 square foot foundation, the average cost of a new, installed one would cost about $5-$8 per square foot, or $5000-$8000.

  • Materials you would need:
    • Poured slab concrete typically costs anywhere from $3-$5 per square foot.
    • Footings can add an additional $1-$2 per square foot.
    • A crawl space foundation can be a better option, but it also requires more materials and labor time and can double the overall cost of the project.
  • Labor costs from the contractors and/or concrete specialists usually adds another $2-$3 per square foot, for a total of $2000-$3000 for this. On average, it takes three to four days from start to finish to dig out and pour the concrete.

There may be additional costs such as:

  • The foundation that is poured as an attached addition to an existing home might take longer and be slightly more expensive because of the need to work around existing buildings.
  • In most areas, permits are required for pouring a new foundation.
  • If the area needs to be leveled significantly before the foundation can be poured, plan to add another $1000-$2000 and a few days to your total costs.
