  1. Great video…, 👍
    Now is this recommended for a smaller cracks around the chipped cement ? My driveway has this issue in the area of 2 by 2 feet

  2. Thanks for the video. If I'm using the bonding agent, do I still need to moisten the concrete that is being repaired with water?

  3. Should we broom brush it horizontal? It is kinda odd to do it vertical like in the video.

  4. Ended up enjoying this video more than expected. I liked the way explained the process.

  5. He left 2 gaps in the patch. tisk tisk.

  6. The video was fun (thanks!). I'm a laywoman who dabbles in this stuff when I can't find someone to do this and it's common around here. We have uneven sidewalks due to tree roots growing. I reached out to our handyguy and even he doesn't know anyone who can do it. So, it's my job. Can I use Sakerete to form an angle on a angled sidewalk that's no greater than 2" high. I'd do a 3" section and bond it before adding more Sakerete and repeat the process. Depending on the weather, I may or may not use a snowblower and without the cement filled in, it makes snowplowing a literal pain. Tnx.

  7. Good video. I would like to add one tip. I have found it helpful to install concrete screws (tapcons) in the concrete before the repair is made. This helps to mechanically attach the patch to the concrete. We have literally installed tractor trailer loads of repair mortars over the years.

  8. "Don't get cocky!" 😆 Great video, thanks yall.

  9. What is the bonding agent used

  10. Will the color of the patch match the concrete when dried? I have a clean 10 year old that is power washed, so still bright in color. Great Video!

  11. What can I use for repairs larger than 2 inches?
    My shed slab has pieces off that are about 4 inches deep.

  12. I’d like to know about using it on a driveway with a slope and some sunken areas?

  13. 😆 𝔭𝔯𝔬𝔪𝔬𝔰𝔪

  14. Would this be suitable for driveway repairs?
