The Rebar Cost calculator computes the total cost (TC) of rebar based on the length being purchased(TL), length of the individual pieces being bought (uL)  and unit price (uC) of one piece of rebar.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred length units (e.g. feet or meters) and enter the following:

  • (TL) This is the total length of rebar being purchased
  • (uL) This is the length of a piece of rebar being purchased (e.g. 20 ft, 40 ft or 60 ft)
  • (uC)  This is the cost of one piece of rebar.

Cost of Rebar (TC): The total cost of the rebar is returned in U.S. Dollars.   However, this can be automatically converted to many other currency units (e.g. Euros or Yen) via the pull-down menu.

You have computed that you need 840 feet of 1/2" (size #4) grade 60 rebar using the Rebar Calc at vCalc.  You've shopped around and found that you can buy rebar for $5.63 per 20 foot piece at a rebar factory store.  You can now use this calculator to compute total cost of rebar.

You enter:

  • TL  = 840 feet
  • uL = 20 feet.  This is the length of the individual pieces of rebar you can buy.
  • uC = $5.63.   This is a unit cost of $5.63 for #4 20' grade 60 pieces.

Cost of Rebar (TC) is returned at 236.46 USD  ($236.46 U.S. dollars).
