Q:Do you recommend a reinforcing metal mesh for tensile strength in a Quikcrete 5000 patch over a gravel subgrade (driveway/street junction)?
by|Jan 20, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Please consult local building code to determine whether the use of reinforcement is suitable for your construction project and to ensure compliance regarding required concrete strength. Steel reinforcement is generally recommended for concrete placements in excess of 4-5” in thickness.

    Q:whats in quikcrete 5000 thats makes it set up faster
    by|Jan 13, 2023
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  There is nothing that makes 5000 psi set up faster than 3000 psi. It’s just has a harder setting strength. They sell fast setting concrete or quick Crete that’s a little bit more money if you want it to dry faster

    by|Jan 19, 2023

      A:  QUIKRETE® 5000 Concrete Mix does not set faster than QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix. It has a higher cement loading, so it will gain strength faster, but it is still a normal-setting concrete.

        Q:How many bags do I need for an area of ??70 square feet and 4 thick?
        by|Jan 11, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Each 50-pound bag of QUIKRETE® 5000 Concrete Mix will yield approximately 3/8 cubic feet. To pour a 70 square foot slab at 4” thick, you will need 23-1/3 cubic feet of concrete, or 63 50-pound bags. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

          great for concrete coffee table project
          I used 4.25 50 lb bags to fill a melamine form and made a 'modern' style concrete table with rebar 6" x 6" wire. I let it set while I was away for 5 days in the form, then removed the form and let it cure for an additional 5 days before polishing with pads up to 800 grit and applied a wet look sealer. Very pleased with the finished product. It's very heavy and sturdy - will probably be around as long as stone henge! The aggregate in the mix added character to the finished product.

            Did the job. Poured three bags in a 30" deep hole for a post to secure a retractable garden hose assembly. Followed with a garden hose to water the mixture and left it sit over night. Next day, solid as a rock. Looks great and is sturdy.

            Worked great. Original instructions seemed a bit off for Water/Mix ration, but once you get that down, goes pretty quickly. Utilized a Quikrete Walkway mold as well to do a concrete "paver" patio and turned out great.

            This worked out well for my driveway. I replaced a 7x9 foot section. Thought I calculated right and added a few extra bags to be safe, but ended up with a dozen extra. Home Depot took the extras back. Directions recommended 3/4 gallon of water to mix with each bag, but that was too dry. Learned that the hard way. That part did not finish smooth.

            We used it to make concrete counters for our outdoor kitchen. It was easy to work with and so far seems to look good. The color turned out a bit different that we would have liked, but it's OK. The photo shows our concrete mixed with Buff coloring by Quikcrete
