Customer Questions & Answers

How many Sq feet does a single bag of Quikcrete cover?

Asked by: Gibbs
A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. If applied 4” thick, which is the typical depth for a slab, a 60 lb bag will roughly cover 1.35 cubic feet. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc. ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? I think the EXPERT means @ 4" thick a 60 lb.bag will cover 1.35 square feet, not 1.35 cubic feet. It is only 0.45 cubic feet to start with.

How many 4x4 fence posts will one bag cover? Like 1 ft. deep, regular size fence post holes?

I need to put in about 8 fence posts and don't know how much concrete I need to buy. Thanks!
Asked by: Cristi
1 foot is too shallow of a hole. No matter what I use 2 ft hole and 6 ft above grade for fence. There is no dynamic force on the post and should be plenty. If it's a support post for a gate you might get a deeper hole/longer post, but unless the gate is wider than three feet there also not much strain. stay with 2 and 6. For a gate that is wider, you might consider a 4x6 or sister two posts if you are concerned and stay with the two ft hole and 6 ft above grade. My calculations are one 90# sack comes short to fill a two ft deep hole with standard post hole digger 6-7 inches width and a 4x4. Use 2 60# per ft. The dirt/soil here is HARD. I would never dig a 12 inch wide hole. Why would you. Too much work for zero gain. I use to use the 90# bags but the 60# are easier to lift and move. After putting in probably 60 posts and many more to go, I suggest the 60# as 1 per foot. I have not had a post go over in 32 years at the house. The post may rot, but the cement is still solid. an old guy

How many bags in a 10 inch tube 5 foot deep

10". Diameter tube
Asked by: Anonymous
You have 2.72 cubic feet. 2.72 cubic feet times 135lb per cubic foot of concrete is 368lb of concrete needed. If you buy 60lb bags of concrete, you will need a bit more than 6. You could always stuff some more rocks in the wet concrete so you don't have to buy a full bag.

60 lb. Concrete Mix is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product - Water Content is Critical This is a great product for small jobs around the home, but there are a couple of critical items you must be aware of. First off, if you can actually “pour” the concrete, you have added too much water, and the concrete has lost most, if not all of its strength. It is Critical you use the amount of water listed on the bag, and that means actually measuring it (I realize there are numerous Pros who can eye ball the amount, but the DIYer should always measure). Adding just a couple of extra cups of water can reduce the strength by 50%! In other words, you could develop cracks sooner than later. The second item I have found is that most people do not mix the product long enough. If you mix it just long enough to blend the ingredients, then place the concrete, it will harden up on you fast. By mixing an additional 3-4 minutes, the product will be more creamy (for lack of better words), and after you place it, you will have the proper time needed to screed it, the cream will rise to the top and finishing will be a breeze. Most DIYer's want to hurry like a mad man when dealing with concrete, when it should be the opposite. Each step in the process should be done in a timely manner, but never rushed. The whole process takes hours from mixing it to the final finish phase, so take a deep breath and don’t rush it. This is a great product for the DIYer as long as you are consistent with the water content from batch to batch. Plus, make sure that you mix it long enough. Doing both of these things will not only ensure you do a good job, but an excellent one as well. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY concrete We needed to replace a sidewalk that had been lifted and cracked by tree roots before winter arrived . It was only a portion of the sidewalk that needed replacing so I wanted to do it myself . When I saw that Home Depot offered delivery the very next day I was very happy as I was concerned about getting the product from store to home by ourselves and handling all that weight two extra times ! Also by purchasing a pallet I saved almost enough to pay for the delivery ! Hurray for Home Depot once again !!

They sell a more economical 80 lb bag; but for my aging body the 60 lb bags are about all I want to handle. I usually figure 3 bags for every 4 post. I have been using this product for years and as long as I make sure to select unbroken bags, I never have a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality Very good on delivery but the cement has too many rocks. All the bags are not the same mixed. I am not recommended for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product! I purchased a pallet of 56 bags of the Quikrete and ended up using only 23 bags but was able to return the unused 33 bags to my local Home Depot. Returning the unused bags was effortless. The concrete set up very nicely and I am very satisfied with the product. Would definitely recommend!
