BE VERY CAREFUL PURCHASING THIS PRODUCT! I purchased 5 bags of this concrete countertop mix from Home Depot online. The order was available quickly and I went and picked it up at the Miamisburg, Ohio Home Depot. I had hired a contractor to install the countertops for me. I have two separate sections of countertops in my kitchen. The contractors mixed up and poured the first two bags and they looked great. The next two bags were lighter when the contractors mixed them up. They said that different dye lots can have different color intensities and that the two separate countertops would most likely dry out and be the same color. Unfortunately, when the countertops started drying it became obvious that one countertop was gray and the other was white. I had specifically ordered the gray mix, but had been given 2 bags of gray and 3 bags of white. All the bags were labeled identically, with the same numbers, and nothing to indicate what color of concrete was contained inside. It wasn't Home Depot's fault because there would have been no way for them to know the wrong colors were given to me. I called the QuikCrete company and talked to the local rep who confirmed and admitted that they do not label the bags appropriately, therefore he is providing me with more concrete to pour over top of mismatched counters, which I appreciate. However, because of the inconvenience of not having a kitchen to use for a week while waiting on the QuikCrete company to reach a decision on how to fix the problem, it has been an enormous, stressful hassle (not to mention that I have to pay the contractors to come out again). I am sure once the contractors pour the next layer of concrete and finish out the countertops, it will look great (very modern, clean and with a bit of an industrial edge), and I'm convinced it will work out but it's been a major headache thus far. Also note that the concrete does have some rocks in it and once you pour the concrete it will need to be sanded out then sealed to get a nice smooth finish. Also, because it is concrete, expect some cracks to show up as the concrete cures.

Used for an outside bar pour in place countertop. After 1 month of curing ended up with numerous structural cracks.Used #3 rebar for support, plastic tented for seven days, still cracked. In spring have to cut up and remove. Lot of money wasted in concrete, diamond grinding disks and styrofoam forms. Not my first concrete attempt, poured walkway around my inground pool, no cracks after 7 years. Product maybe ok for inside small job, but will not use again.

It's a great product mostly because of its convenience and great value. But convenience is a moot issue when our Home Depot (which apparently is the whole of Southern Oregon according to their web site ) does not stock this counter top mix nor will they order it. My question and the reason for less than 5 stars is if your not going to sell it or Quikrete can't supply the product then why advertize it or advertize for Quikrete? Apparently Home Depot is not the only concrete supply that is having trouble ordering this counter top mix from the Quikrete supplier here in Southern Oregon..
