Save money on expensive concrete replacements with Finalcrete. The savings start by not having to remove old concrete. If the foundation is sound you can restore the area quickly and easily with a Finalcrete repair patch. So let’s consider how much product you’ll need. Start by calculating the square footage of your job site. That’s the length times the width. For a 10 by 10 space the area is 100 square feet. Next, calculate the optimum thickness for the application. With most measures done in inches, you’ll need to determine first what type of Finalcrete application will best suit your needs, trowel or spray.

The mixing measures will be different for these applications. Once you have the thickness or height determined, say one 1/8, you’ll need to convert the inches into feet. To do this, see Finalcrete Material Calculations under Product Documentation section. To calculate the cubic feet on your own, use the formula length times width times height. For our 100 square foot area that is best repaired at 1/8”, or 0.01042 feet, the cubic foot measure is 100 time 0.01042, or 1.042. Now, divide the total cubic feet by the trowel repair ratio, which is 1:3 of liquid to mix yield, or 0.573 cubic feet per kit to obtain the total number of kits. In the case of our trowel example, you would need at least 2 kits to complete the job and it’s always best to round up.

When measuring your job site, accuracy matters. Be sure you’ve measured correctly and always have extra product on-hand in case you need more. Save money and time by repairing instead of replacing concrete at your job site and use Finalcrete.
