patio quotes

I'm in Houston, Texas. I want to have a patio poured (12'x50'), adding two sidewalks (40' and 20'), and a 10x12 slab for a shed.

What should I be looking for on concrete, concrete psi, rebar, etc..

Thanks

You want at least 4 inches of concrete, 5" would make it even stronger.... psi at least 3000, no more than 4000... reinforced with 6"x6" wire mesh or 3/8" rebar 12"x12" would be good... if the area is virgin ground and not wet or soft its ok to dig down 4-5" and install the concrete, otherwise get down to hard dirt and install a gravel base, if the area needs alot of fill more than 12" the key is a solid base before the concrete is poured
