Wade, I suppose it depends on what you're going to use it for. In my newest barn, I had a concret floor poured, 4" thick, reinforced with both rebar and fiberglass because I figured it would make a difference and it has. Heaviest tractor ever on it about 10,000 lbs. Its good for moving and storing pallets of fertilizer and feed, but I don't have a forklift so I don't know that I need concrete. Its ok. Has cracks, no big deal. I don't remember what it cost, but if I had to do it all over again, I think I might not have poured the whole thing and stopped at a slab for an office and a working pad for the hoist, but thats me. My other barns got dirt floors and do just fine. Maybe I should be happy with the concrete and stop taking it for granted? Maybe slab with ratboard around its more valuable than I notice. I know there's stuff living under it, not sure what though. I know there's stuff living in my barns with dirt floors, nothing big though that can't be dealt with. Oh well.

Good luck.

Rebar at the door and mat for the rest.
