Q:can this product be used for a pizza oven
by|Jan 25, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Portland cement, the base material out of which QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete Mix as well as other concretes is made, can degrade in temperatures as low as 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of this, products used for the pizza oven or immediately surrounding it, should be made of refractory cement, rather than Portland cement. Refractory cement is designed to be able to withstand exposure to high temperatures.

    Q:What Sq foot does 50 lbs cover
    by|Jan 7, 2023
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Each 50-pound bag of QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet. The square foot coverage will depend on the thickness of the application. If you are using standard 2x4” lumber for your forms, each bag will cover an area of 1-1/4 square feet. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

        Q:Could this be used to pour a formed wall?
        by|Dec 5, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Not a good idea. This is best for fence posts or places where there is surrounding ground and no mixing is needed. You need a fiber reinforced concrete mix.

        by|Jan 11, 2023

          A:  QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete can be used in form-and-pour applications exceeding 2” thick in all dimensions.

                Economical choice for countertops
                Was looking for an alternative for countertop cement mixes. "Countertop"bags traditionally are $25. This was a great value but was a bit chunky causing voids on the edges. I should have worked the forms more. I just patched voids with Portland cement.

                  I had a leak on the spillway of my pond and previous attempts to patch it with regular Sacrete were unsuccessful. I purchased 6 bags of the crack resistant concrete mix, mixed them one at a time in my wheelbarrow and applied them in and all around the leak. It's been 3 weeks and so far the plug is holding up and my pond is full capacity.

                    HD is great! Brief summary of my project. Pouring a 4" slab to support a paver walk (~15' long). Checking prices and HD happened to be having a daily special on the crack resistant mix. Ordered online along with some other supplies. Arrived at store and rented the flatbed truck to take back to our home. Picked up and loaded within 15 mins. My son and I unloaded the 28 bags of premix, and I still had time to take the truck to the landscape place to pick up and deliver my pavers back to the house, and return the truck within the 75 mins - such a deal! Ended up saving >$100 in delivery charges. Since I was by myself, mixed/poured in the evening so as to increase the work time of the premix. Mix the concrete by hand in a wheelbarrow, and was able to do 2 bags at a time. The 1gal of H2O per bag was just right for a workable consistency. If you don't rent a mixer, do use a garden hoe instead of a shovel-mixes much easier. Took me about 3hrs in all. Product troweled nicely in the end and dried to a nice finish on which to lay the pavers.

                    Mixed up and finished well. Repaired a hole in a concrete floor where we had to take out to fix pipes under the floor. Used 12 bags with a 4 bag rental mixer unit.
