Materials and Tools You’ll Need:

  • Kwik-Crete (amount will vary based on the extent of damage)
  • Broom or vacuum cleaner
  • Hammer and chisel
  • Power washer or garden hose
  • Concrete cleaner or degreaser
  • Stiff-bristled brush
  • Trowel or squeegee
  • Bucket for mixing
  • Water
  • Protective gloves and eyewear

Step 1: Clean the Area

Before applying Kwik-Crete, ensure the area is free of dust and debris. Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove loose particles. This step is crucial for proper adhesion between Kwik-Crete and the existing concrete.

Step 2: Remove Loose Concrete

Using a hammer and chisel, carefully remove any loose or damaged concrete surrounding the spalled areas. This will allow the Kwik-Crete to bond more effectively to the existing surface.

Step 3: Clean the Surface

Clean the surface thoroughly with a power washer or garden hose to remove dirt and contaminants. If the floor has oil, grease, or other stubborn stains, use a concrete cleaner or degreaser with a stiff-bristled brush to scrub the area.

Step 4: Prepare Kwik-Crete Mixture

Following the manufacturer’s instructions, mix the Kwik-Crete with water in a clean bucket. Be sure to wear protective gloves and eyewear during this process. Stir the mixture until it reaches a smooth, lump-free consistency.

Step 5: Apply Kwik-Crete

With the trowel or squeegee, apply a thin layer of Kwik-Crete to the spalled areas. Make sure to spread the material evenly, filling all voids and gaps. Ensure that the Kwik-Crete is flush with the surrounding concrete surface for a seamless appearance.

Step 6: Smooth the Surface

Smooth the Kwik-Crete using the trowel or squeegee, ensuring a consistent and level surface. Remove any excess material from the edges.

Step 7: Cure the Kwik-Crete

Allow the Kwik-Crete to cure as per the manufacturer’s instructions. The curing time may vary depending on factors such as temperature, humidity, and the thickness of the application.

Step 8: Inspect the Repair

Once the Kwik-Crete has fully cured, inspect the repair for any imperfections. If necessary, sand or grind the surface to achieve a uniform appearance. Your spalled concrete floor is now restored and ready for use!
