I've used this for years on almost all of my concrete jobs; porches, patios, walkways, footings, piers. Easy to work with. A little extra tamping gets a good amount of finish material. Makes 1/2 cubic foot per bag. 1 bag & 1 gallon of water makes a perfect mix. I do 4 at a time in my mixer.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DIY2014 Inconsistent quality
bought this cement when it was on sale. Since I couldn't buy too many bags at once, I bought two different loads 1 week apart. Of course I received two different lot #s. The first lot was OK. Was able to smooth top pretty good. The second lot was mostly rocks and had difficulty getting smooth surface. This is not acceptable. What do you do in this situation? Take back 40 bags of concrete? Is Sakrrete going to reimburse me for wasted time putting this stuff down? You get what you pay for. I always tell myself that and keep getting suckered into "good deals."

I bought two bags of this concrete. Added water, mixed it, and applied it. Everything looked as expected so far. But after I let it dry 48+ hours this stuff crumbled like a shortbread biscuit. The stuff came apart with a screwdriver. I could even take it apart with my fingers. After it dried it became clear that this stuff is just colored sand and gravel. Had I left it as is it would have dissolved in a short period of time with rain or snow and my deck would have collapsed, risking possible injuries to people. Needless to say I had to dig all this stuff out and start anew. The bags are only $3 each but thereâs much more than that involved in applying this stuff, in removing it because it is useless, and then in doing it all over again.

For my project I used about 62 bags. Store employees loaded me up each visit with a smile. Product worked and mixed great. I'm very happy with HD

Used this cement as a base for the pavers that made up my new sidewalk and also my new patio area as well as the base for my new shed. It went down easy, mixed well, stayed pliable long enough to set and level the pavers with minimal effort. This is much better than the "quick-set" types. They set up way too fast. I will use this cement again the next time I need to do any cement work without question.
