Service walks connecting to back or side entrances do not typically require wire. However, check with local building codes to be certain. You may also consider using QUIKRETE Crack Resistant Concrete Mix as it contains fiber reinforcement as well as air entrainment for increased durability. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix and QUIKRETE Crack Resistant Concrete Mix will both set (get hard to the touch) in approximately 4 – 8 hours at 70 deg. F. It will take more time at lower temperatures, less time at higher temperatures.

A “4 bag” concrete mixer, should have a minimum of a 4 cubic foot capacity. The rule of thumb is to allow at least 1 cubic foot of mixer capacity for each 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix to be mixed at one time.

Hello Leggs,

A 16 sq ft slab at 6" thick you would need about 14 bags of 80lb concrete. For a 12" thick slab you're looking at 28 bags. I hope this helps.

An 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. An application that is 40 ft x 0.67 ft. (8”) x 0.5 ft. (6”) will require approximately 13.5 cubic feet of concrete, or approximately 22 ½ 80 lb. bags of concrete. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc. An expansion joint should be left between the asphalt and the concrete as the two materials will expand and contract at different rates. If there is not an expansion joint, one or both of the materials could potentially crack. You may consider utilizing QUIKRETE Expansion Joint Strips, #6917, to help accomplish this.

That is about 33 cubic feet. Concrete is in the 130 to 150 pound per cubic foot range based on the amount of water you add, so you are looking at around 55 bags.

QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix is a pre-blended mixture of cement and aggregates for general structural uses, requiring only the addition of water. It has a typical compressive strength of 4000 psi at 28 days and can be utilized for applications such as a curbs. The QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix does not contain fibers and whether or not you need rebar will depend on the conditions the curb will face. If you are looking for a product that contains fiber and has a similar compressive strength we would recommend the QUIKRETE® Crack-Resistant Concrete Mix. Please consult your local municipality for engineering requirements.

QUIKRETE Concrete Mix has a typical strength of 4000 psi at 28 days. Consult your local building code to see if this strength and your design meet the requirements for a greenhouse foundation, for example, does it require footers that extend below the frostline, does it require metal reinforcement, etc. The number of bags required will be dependent upon the thickness of the foundation. A standard slab is 4” thick. An 80 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet of concrete. A 30 ft. x 40 ft. x 0.34 ft. (4 inch) slab will require approximately 396 - 408 cubic feet of concrete, or approximately 660 - 680 80 lb. bags. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

Hi Greenhousebuilder, unfortunately this would be a large amount of 80 pound bags of ready mix. You would save money and time to have this much concrete poured.

1200 hundred square feet 4" thick would require 673 bags, and if the slab were 6" thick you would need 997 bags.

I have a 2 to 3 in crack in my driveway running from the street to the garage (there is no rebar in the driveway). I don't have the money to replace. Can you recommend products to fill the crack, that will bond to the old concrete and seal it to keep water out?

Asked by

August 19, 2014
Given the crack you describe, it sounds as though there has been settling of the sub-grade underneath the driveway taking place. Without first rectifying any issues with the sub-grade, it would be best to NOT fill the entire crack with a rigid, cementitious based material that is bonded to the existing concrete on BOTH sides of the crack, as it will likely crack as further settling occurs. You may consider using some thin material, such as Masonite or thin sheets of plastic, to build a “form” within the crack on one side, so that you can apply QUIKRETE Sand Topping Mix #1103 into the crack to bond to only one side of it. Once the Sand Topping Mix has cured sufficiently, you may remove the form, leaving a gap between the second side of the crack and the Sand Topping Mix. After allowing the Sand Topping Mix to cure for a minimum of 28 days, check to see that it has cured to the point that it does not contain excess moisture as follows: tape a 4” x 4” square of plastic wrap over the area, and wait 4 hours. If there is condensation under the plastic, additional curing time is needed. Once there is no longer moisture, use a fine sand, such as QUIKRETE Mason Sand #1952-49 or QUIKRETE Commercial Grade Fine or Medium Sand, #1961 or #1962, to fill the gap up to no more than ½” below the top surface of the driveway. Fill the remainder of the depth with Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant #8660-10 between the driveway and the Sand Topping Mix. The working joint depth of the Polyurethane should not exceed ½" or be thinner than 1/8", ideally ¼". The ratio of joint width to depth should be 2 to 1. The material used as the form should be of a thickness that allows these requirements to be fulfilled. If the Polyurethane is applied while there is still moisture present, it will bubble, either immediately after being applied, or while it cures. There is still a chance that as the sub-grade continues to settle, the Sand Topping Mix will crack, or the Polyurethane Sealant may pull away from either the Sand Topping Mix or the existing concrete. It is important to note that neither the Sand Topping Mix or the Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant will be exact color matches to the existing concrete, or a match to each other. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 for further assistance.

No. Quikrete is premixed at the right ratio of portland cement, sand and aggregate. Adding more sand would change the ratio to the point where you would not get "concrete".
