Hi Juan, if your area is 2 feet X 5 feet (24" X 60") equals 10 square feet.

If your depth is 6 inches, then you will need 9 bags of 80 pound concrete.

In cold temperatures, which may be considered to be weather that is below 50 dF, or near freezing 32 dF at night, concrete may be utilized, provided that certain cold weather precautions are taken, including but not limited to the following: 1) Store the material in a warm temperature before use, 2) Mix the material with warm water, 3) Protect the application from freezing for no less than 48 hours. If these preventive measures cannot be taken, it would be best to wait for warmer weather. You may wish to obtain further technical support directly from QUIKRETE at 1-800-282-5828.

QUIKRETE Sand/Topping Mix #1103, in conjunction with QUIKRETE Concrete Acrylic Fortifier #8610 replacing half of the required water content, is recommended for a shower pan. It meets the performance requirements of your job. It is critical that the subfloor / structure underneath be rigid. ANSI 108.1 provides application and material requirements for jobs such as this – QUIKRETE Concrete Mix contains gravel, which is not a specified material component of ANSI 108.1.

Each 32” deep, 9” diameter hole containing a 4” x 4” post will require approximately 1 ½ 80 lb. bags of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix #1101 must be mixed with water prior to placement. It is NOT an acceptable practice for this product to be placed dry, then water added on top of it afterwards. Only QUIKRETE Fast Setting Concrete Mix #100450, when used for setting posts, may be placed dry then water added on top per instructions. Any application other than setting posts requires that the Fast Setting Concrete Mix also be mixed with water prior to placement.

Any wood that is going to be set in concrete should be classified as “rot resistant wood”. Certain woods are naturally more rot resistant than other types, while some woods, sure as pine, must be treated to be considered rot resistant. Contact your local Home Depot store for assistance in determining what rot resistant wood is available in your area. Note that is you are using QUIKRETE Concrete Mix #1101 to set posts, the concrete must be blended with clean water before it is placed. QUIKRETE Fast Setting Concrete Mix #100450 is the only product for setting posts that can be added to the hole dry, then have water poured onto the dry mix until the powder is saturated with water as per instructions. Even the Fast Setting Concrete Mix, if being used for any application other than setting posts, must be blended with clean water before being placed.

Setting a pressure treated wooden post in Quikrete is fine, just make sure it is installed properly and the wood is not too wet before setting it.

Asked by

Control joints are typically recommended so that random cracking will take place at predetermined locations for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Although joints are most commonly tooled into the concrete at the time of placement (prior to the onset of bleed water), they may also be saw cut into the hardened concrete surface. Correct timing depends on many variables such as environmental conditions, concrete design, and blade type, among others. Saw cutting is often done 4 to 48 hours after finishing, primarily depending upon the weather conditions. Because your pad has been poured for two weeks, there is a risk that as the saw moves across the concrete, uncontrolled cracking may develop ahead of the saw. A diamond blade will offer a better chance of successfully cutting than other blade types, such as silicon carbide blades, but you should still evaluate the risk.

When being used for setting posts only, 50 lb QUIKRETE Fast Setting Concrete Mix (#100450 in the red bag) can be added to the hole dry, then have water poured onto the dry mix until the powder is saturated with water as per instructions. For holes deeper than 2 ½ feet, the material should be placed dry in lifts of no more than 2 ½ feet, with water added for each lift, to allow water to soak all the way through. If using any other product, or if using the Fast Setting Concrete Mix for any application other than setting posts, the concrete must be blended with clean water before being placed.

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.

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.

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.
