The number of bags required for the patio addition will depend upon the depth of the slab. A typical slab is 0.33 ft (4 in) thick. A patio extension that is 10 ft x 10 ft x 0.33 ft will require 33 cubic feet of concrete. A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.45 cubic feet of concrete so you will need 73-74 60 lb bags. An 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields 0.6 cubic feet of concrete, so if you use this size package, you will need 55 80 lb bags. Yields will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade,etc.

To encapsulate the existing VAF and create a level surface, QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer #1249-51 would be the most appropriate product. It would require priming with QUIKRETE Concrete Bonding Adhesive #9902 diluted per instructions, installing a metal lath for a mechanical bond, and creating a form to ensure that material completely encapsulates the VAF. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment when working around the VAF, including a respirator designed for asbestos abatement. QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer can be applied in thicknesses from featheredge to 1”, with ¼” minimum required for heavy traffic areas. Check local codes to verify thickness requirements for encapsulating asbestos. For areas deeper than 1”, apply in layers no greater than 1”, and prime between layers with the diluted QUIKRETE Concrete Bonding Adhesive. Alternately, QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer may be extended up to 50% with (-3/8”) pea gravel in areas deeper than 1". For best results when using extended material, apply a final ¼” to 1” layer without extension. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 to discuss further.

The number of bags will depend on the thickness of the application. Each 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.6 cubic feet. If the application is the minimum 2 inches, then the volume would be 8 cubic feet, which means roughly 14 whole bags (actually 13.3 bags) would be needed. For a 4 inch application, 27 whole bags would be required ( actually 26.7 bags). These are just estimates as yields will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

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.
