A One-Step Concrete Patch you Can Use at your Daughter's BBQ

A master plasterer shows off his concrete-patching skills at a weekend BBQ
July 03, 2023

Alright, guys, we've got Mud Face here, also known as Mutt Dog. He's been peeing in the garage for a long time. We're trying to train him to stop peeing in here. So, what we've done is, every time he pees in here, I put him on a leash and clean it up with Ajax and stuff. We've almost got him trained, but today he had a little accident.

Charlie likes to pee in a hole in the garage floor :/

We came out here and found a big puddle around this hole in the concrete. So, I chained him up and started washing it with water. Sometimes it gets away from me, and I squirt him. He hates that. We've been training him for about two weeks now, and he's improving. However, I think this hole looks like a toilet to him. So, here's what we're going to do. I'm at my baby's house in Martinez, and it's the weekend.

Sika All-Pro is a fantastic product for concrete repair

We were actually barbecuing, but I thought I could fix the hole by bringing some cement. My baby said she had something, and she showed me this product. I checked it out, and it seems like it might work. It's still good, even though it has an expiration date. Alright, that's more than enough. Let me show you guys something. I don't have my tools with me, but I don't need them. For example, if you have a crack or hole in your concrete or foundation, this stuff right here is called Sika All-Pro. Sika is a renowned company in the concrete industry. They build bridges, skyscrapers, and more. They are even working on the highest bridge in the world in Vietnam, I believe.

You don't even need concrete tools: a sponge will do

Anyway, you just take a little bit of this product and fill the hole. When it dries, it won't be noticeable because it dries almost the same color as the concrete. I'm using simple tools like a dish and a sponge to smooth it out. In 24 hours, it will be rock solid. If you want it to look prettier, you can clean it up with the other side of the sponge.

This will put an end to Charlie's toilet issue—poor guy. Now, let me use the rest of this stuff to prove a point. If you have cracks like this one, you can fill them too. This crack wasn't our main objective; our main goal was to cover Charlie's little toilet and encourage him to go outside. I think it's working, but occasionally he still fails.

Anyway, if you have cracks that you find unsightly, you can use this product. You can buy it at Home Depot, Lowe's, or other stores. You don't really need professional tools. Just apply it and let it dry for 24 hours. It will be strong and almost as good as regular concrete. Okay, now I'm going to play with Charlie because we've taken him out of his usual environment. Since you've been a good little mutt face, I'll let you watch if you're interested. If not, I understand. You might want to see something you can do yourself.
