Can this be used to fill garage floor cracks that are at the most approx. 1/2" wide? I am not planning on putting anything on top of this, such as tile or epoxy surface-- is it okay for such an application?
Asked by: newbieconcretehobbyist
This would fill in the gap of 1/2 inch crack in concrete. I would not use mortar to fill in a crack of concrete because the concrete is flexing at the crack point. This is the reason for the crack. I believe you will be happier finding something with more elasticity.

Can this be used to create a 3.5" thick sloped mortar bed to be used with a liquid membrane for a shower? ( picture attatched)
Asked by: steven
I would not use this to replace 3.5 inches of concrete. I would suggest purchasing ready mix concrete. There are no rocks in this bag thus the stuff will want to crack when nature flexes the location.

I am putting a shower in the basement that has a cement floor but I don't want to tile over it and just use it for athe shower floor-do I need to seal it? And can I add color to this mix?
Asked by: bj
it is not as simple as that. You need to use deck mud (5 parts sand : 1 part portland cement) as a 'Pre slope' then lay a PVC pan liner, then use the deck mud to make actual slope over the liner. check out products like quick pitch and videos by goof proof on YT to see how this is done
