I had a hole in my patio cement that either I or my dogs kept tripping over. Well, it is no more. The pail of patch comes ready to mix with a little water (like a putty). You apply it with a trowel and it is ready to walk on in 4 hours. What could be easier? I took a picture to show the hole before patching but it did not show up so there are only pictures of the hole filled and still wet. I have also included a picture of the directions on the can in case you need more info.

This is a very easy product to prepare and to apply. As recommended by the manufacturer, I wore a respirator as whenever you move the powder, it creates a very fine smoke of dust. There are useful step-by-step videos on how to prepare and use the product on Sakrete's website. The mix is very user friendly, no need to add sand, just a bit of water. Just by stirring a couple of times and I had a workable mix. Applying the patcher is straightforward, simply using an old scrapper. It dries quickly as well (can be walked on 4 hours and fully set in 24 hours). It was my first experiment with cement, a product which I originally thought of being intimidating, and was pleasantly surprised by how uncomplicated the whole process is.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reb277 Worked well for my purposes
I admit that I didn't use this to repair a concrete slab, which is what it is designed to do. Rather, I used it to 'patch' the cement between bricks on a step. The bricks began separating again after being 'repaired' by a professional contractor just last summer. So rather than hiring someone to fix the fix, I decided to try this approach. It was easy to place and form the patcher and it set quite quickly. I looks much better and appears to have 'patched' the step. Only time will tell if this approach will solve the problem long-term. Clean up of tools was easy with water and rags.

I needed to repair several places around my house where the concrete had cracked and fallen out. Since I just finished remodeling everything on the exterior above the ground I thought it was time to take care of them. The label didn't say you could use it on a vertical surface but I thought I would try anyway. I had 3 spots where the foundation had cracked and fallen out under the brick at corners. I mixed it and let it set a little while to stiffen and it applied beautifully and stayed. I followed all the directions including covering it with plastic for 24 hours so it would stay wet longer by taping the plastic to the brick and the concrete. I was pleasantly surprised by the results. I now still have a few places on my driveway to do and since it worked on the vertical surfaces I'm sure it will work fine on flat surfaces.

Easy to use. Even if you've never done concrete patching before you'll be able to use this product. Never lumpy and dries fast.

The first thing I like about this product is that it comes in a plastic pale, how many times have you bought a 40lb. bag , used 10lbs. folded over the top stuck in the corner only to find the next time you go to use it , it absorbed enough moisture that it got hard. Having a small job in mind before I ordered this, the day it came I was able to use right away. I use an old 5 gallon bucket that is cut in half, I wear a throw away dust mask, put a little water in first add some powder, mix. At this point you can decide if you need more water and powder to complete the job. A couple different types of trowels are nice but if you don't have a trowel and the job is small wear disposable gloves and use your hands to form or even a small piece of old wood, or a spatula, you get the idea. First timers go the Sakrete web site and watch some the how to videos to get some ideas for your particular type of job. Experienced DIY people will love this stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pamh this cement patcher was perfect for repairing concrete yard ornaments
Instead of replacing some yard ornaments that had cracked in bad weather we decided to try repairing them, the regular ready mix concretes was too hard to work into the crevices and they dried too slowly for repair work. But, the fast setting patcher worked well. It could be worked into the cracks much easier than the other material I tried and the fast set up time let me clean my tools and move on instead of having to continually work the patched area until it set

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJJ21 Outstanding patching product
I had a large chunk of concrete separate from the edge of my sidewalk that I have been wanting to repair for a while. I am extremely pleased with the overall performance of this product. It was easy to mix with water (add in small amounts so you reach the right consistency instead of adding too much water and having to add more powder to correct) in a bucket. You can mix it wet so it is easy to fill in odd shape voids or you can mix it with less water (or let it sit a while to stiffen) to fix vertical surfaces by using it more like a putty that can be molded into the desired shape. Since my void was shallow on one end and deep on the other I used it wet. I found as it began to set it was easy to tool and by sprinkling a little water on top I could achieve a nice smooth surface. I did notice the deeper area set at a different rate then the shallow area so I had to work the product a while to achieve the look I wanted. I performed the patch on a cloudy evening. Temps dropped into the 40s overnight and the next day it rained all day. The product had setup sufficiently the day of install so that the rain had no impact and the patch looks great and is solid.
