Yes, you may use QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix to fill a 2 ft x 2 ft hole in your driveway provided the hole is at least 2 inches deep. Be sure to properly prepare the patch, removing all broken pieces of concrete along with any deteriorating concrete and dust. Rigorously clean the remaining concrete surface of dirt, oils, and other potential bond breakers to allow proper adhesion. For improved bond, first apply a painted on coating of QUIKRETE® Concrete Bonding Adhesive No. 9902 to the existing prespared surface, before pouring the new mixed concrete once the adhesive has dried.

It depends. If the Concrete broke because the support surface is dropping, then NO. You would have to remove the broken concrete and excavate down a foot, refill will big rocks or busted up concrete, and TAMP IT IN to about a 4 inch depth, then add some concrete mesh or rebar, mix and pour your Quickrete, Wait about three days before you drive on it. The longer it cures, the stronger it gets. Thicker is stronger also.

A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. An application that is 11 ft. x 4.5 ft. (54”) x 0.25 ft. (3”) would require approximately 12 ½ cubic feet of concrete, or approximately 28 60 lb. bags of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

We do not recommend altering any of our pre-blended products, as it prevents them from performing according to design. In general, if you need a mortar (material without coarse aggregate), QUIKRETE Sand Topping Mix, #1103, may be suitable. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center directly to discuss your specific application needs (i.e. for a non-shrink grout, core fill grout, etc.) at 1-800-282-5828.

It has better adhesive properties and is smoother to work with.

October 3, 2014
Check with the provider of the satellite dish for recommendations. If it is going to be placed in concrete, the pole must be made of metal that is compatible with cement (an alkaline material), such as galvanized steel, or there is potential for corrosion. Be cautioned that aluminum, in particular, must be avoided as it reacts with either an acid or an alkali. Mixed concrete weighs approximately 140 pounds per cubic foot. A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete, while an 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. Weight and yields are approximate, and will vary based upon mixing water quantity used, waste, etc.

For the above ground portion of your wall between 280 and 300 bags,
For the foundation, it will depend on what part of the country you live in, but in general the foundations would be at least 1' wide and 1' deep #more if your frost line is below 12"# Add another 100-120 bags for each 12 inches deep the footer goes.

Hello hank and thank you for your question.

Check out the Quikrete Concrete Calculator located here: http://www.quikrete.com/calculator/....

400 Square feet requires 445 bags of the 60# concrete to cover to a depth of 6 inches. Divide that by half for a 3 inch slab = 223 bags needed.

Best wishes on your project.

The stability of the bucket containing the post embedded in concrete will depend upon the height of the post, as well as the diameter of the base of the bucket. A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. A 2 gallon bucket would require 0.27 cubic feet of concrete to fill it, if there were no post placed within it. With a 0.167 ft (2 in) x 0.167 ft (2 in) x 1.5 ft (18 in) post contained within it, it will require roughly 0.04 cubic feet less, requiring a net of 1/4 cubic feet of concrete, or more than half of a 60-lb bag. Yields will vary based upon waste, etc.

A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete when placed. A sidewalk that is 12 feet x 4 feet and 0.33 feet (4 inches) thick will require 16 cubic feet of concrete, or 36 60 lb bags. To fill an area that is 432 square feet with concrete that is 0.33 feet (4 inches) thick will require 144 cubic feet of concrete, or 320 60 lb bags. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc. For a pour as large as 432 square feet, it is crucial that you have sufficient equipment and man power to allow you to pour the entire slab, or sections that are separated by expansion joints, before any of the material in that section has set. If some of the material sets before subsequent bags are poured, a cold joint will form. A cold joint is caused by the inability of the product to intermix between bags, and prevents the slab from being a single, solid mass. A cold joint may cause problems ranging from a simple aesthetic issue, to as serious as potentially allowing for water intrusion into the cold joint, which may eventually lead to concrete degradation. Please contact the QUIKRETE® Technical Center directly at 1-800-282-5828 if you have any further questions.

A 30 ft x 30 ft x 0.33 ft (4 inch) slab of concrete will require 300 cubic feet (11.1 cubic yards) of concrete, which will require 500 80 lb bags or 667 60 lb bags.

According to Quickrete at their website, www.Quickrete.com/calculator: for a 30" x 30" x 4" slab, it would require 5- 60lb bags or 4- 80 lb bags, although that would be outhouse size rather than a Shop.
If you meant 30 Ft x 30 Ft x 4 inches, that would require 667- 60 lb or 505 - 80 Lb Bags. Be sure to add 10% as those are approximate numbers.
667 60lb Bags @$3.00 bag is $2,001.
12 Cu Yards of Ready Mix @$100.00 yd is $1200 and a lot less work.

about 60 lb. Concrete Mix on
October 22, 2014
We have a line of concrete that comes out at an angle in the utility room, making it impossible to have the dryer on a level surface from left to right ( at the front, the left side only comes out 27" from the rear wall, but right side is ~30").

Need 1" depth.

What product should we use?

If the product is being placed over unsealed / uncoated concrete, make sure the concrete is clean of any dust, oil, or any other contaminant that could prevent a good bond. If it is being placed over tile, the tile should be roughened (be sure to wear proper personal protective equipment), and metal lath should be installed over it, to ensure a mechanical bond. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix should not be used for applications less than 2 inches thick. QUIKRETE Sand Topping Mix #1103 blended with QUIKRETE Concrete Acrylic Fortifier replacing a portion of the water is an appropriate product for an overlay 0 – 1” thick. If you need further assistance, please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828.

A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. A 0.58 ft diameter hole that is 4 ft deep will require 1.1 cubic feet of concrete or between 2 and 3 60 lb bags. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

As long as the Sacrete is a minimum of 2" thick over the chunks, should be OK. I would put a layer of wire mesh on top of the chunks and make sure it's pulled up slightly to be coated all around by the Sacrete.

This product is recommended to be used at a minimum thickness of 2”, over a stable sub-grade. Your sub-grade is “old broken up cement” and is not stable. It would cause premature failure of the new concrete. There are several ways to approach this project, we would be glad to discuss them with you. Please feel free to contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 to discuss your project further.

A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. For a slab that is 32 ft x 9 ft x 0.25 ft (3 inches), 72 cubic feet of concrete, or 160 60 lb bags will be needed. Typical slabs are 0.33 ft (4 inches) thick, which would require 96 cubic feet, or 213-214 60 lb bags. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc.
