Did a large patio with this concrete 12'x74'. Set time was horrible. The stuff was hardening before the mixer could mix it. Had to add a lot more water then the instructions called for to keep it from hardening inside the mixer. I am afraid this will mean my patio is weaker then it should be because of the excessive water needed to keep this concrete from setting before it was poured. Unfortunately, I had ten pallets delivered of the stuff and it wasn't like I could pick it up and return it to the store. This may work fine for small jobs but I don't recommend it for any larger jobs. Used two different mixers so it wasn't the mixer. Thought the higher price would mean easier installation because I didn't need rebar for a patio. It wasn't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pgittins Padio and Pond project looks and works great.
I selected the 80 lb crack resistant concrete for my patio project because I wanted it to last. The video instructions on the web site were very valuable in helping me understand how to mix, and pour the concrete. I was able to do it in a few batches according to the time I had available. The end result looks very good in my humble opinion. I did the best I could and followed the instructions but I am really not much more than an novice. I have attached a picture because it truly is worth 1000 words. I am completely satisfied and my wife loves going out to the new patio area. She even likes going outside just to take a look. We worked hard, but it was well worth the effort and the satisfaction of a job well done cannot be overstated. I was also pleased with the color options we were able to add.

I used three different grades for my walk way. This by far is the easiest and best to work with. It's double the money, however worth every penny. Don't waste your time and energy. If you're using Forms this is the way to go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mdthediyguy The only product for my project!
I chose this particular Quikrete product for my patio borders because they are too small to deal with reinforcing bars. Each border is 2" thick, 24" long and 5 inches high with tongue and groove ends. Some years ago you could buy that size but they no longer make them. The fibers mixed into the formula are just what was needed. The instructions were accurate, and I followed them down to the curing and finishing. The mix provided the exact volume advertised. My total waste was less than 2 shovels of mixed concrete. 4 border pieces from one 80 lb. bag! My form fit on a 4'x8' sheet of 3/4" plywood, and each pour resulted in 32 border pieces. My project requires a little over 70, and I just finished the first 64. Will proceed with construction of the patio, and wait for a final count before pouring the last pieces.
No copyright required, I built the forms, poured the concrete, and took the pictures. Any one with a sense of construction can do the same thing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alldone hard core fix for chimney
Ripped off mortar cap installed by useless bricklayers. Laid 2 courses of brick and fliiled cavity with 3/8 rebar web and this stuff which is troweled to a crown around the flue. ~4-5 in thick per instructions. Sealant applied to cap and brick and it is a permanant fix for generations. This stuff goes where you never intend to return. Hardcore.
