Concrete Guide

Quikrete is an affordable and readily available concrete mix that will work for most projects. If you are casting intricate pieces you might want to filter out the larger pieces of gravel. Most Home Depots keep this in stock and sell it for about $3.50 a bag.

QUIKRETE 5000

Quikrete 5000 is stronger than regular Quikrete and it cures faster. This is the concrete mix that I use most often. It costs about $5 for an 80 pound bag. You can use this for any of these projects.

COMMERCIAL GRADE COUNTERTOP MIX

Quikrete Commercial Grade Countertop Mix is the best mix I have used. It is more expensive at $15 a bag and has to be special ordered from Home Depot. It is worth the time and money. It comes out like polished quartz and is easy to work with.
