Concrete Patch Repair

Houston, United States(Zone 9b)

If you have ever repaired a broken spot in a concrete drive or sidewalk would you please offer any do's and don'ts?

Also looking for a recommendation on a product to use. Thanks in advance!

Wow....all this time and still no solutions guys?

I never saw it... do you have a picture? Or is it a crack, or a broken piece that needs replacing, or just a chunk broken out?

chunk broken @ end of drive near street. 2 year old home...poor concrete job initially done. i'm selling now but would love a solution for the future!

If it's on an edge, I'd remove it and pour some new. When repairing concrete you usually use additives to get it to stick better. It's kind of hard to describe without seeing how big a piece it is, etc. Around here they'd make you fix it before you can sell the house, believe it or not, even the side walk. If you can post a picture I'm pretty sure I could tell you how to do it.

thanks clay. yes, I imagine they are more particular in your fine state. here it's buyer beware...though it's the only flaw I've had a gripe about in my new place. unbelieveable they'd want YOU to fix the sidewalk though!? I suppose if you had planted the trees that uprooted the sidewalk maybe...

we're in a winter storm here...freezing rain so it'd be awhile before I venture outside....for pics or to fix it. =) it's a good sized chunk though...like the spread of your hand.

It's the township ...even if a tree the town planted tears up the sidewalk, you have to fix it. Pretty weird, huh?
Good liuck with that storm
