quikrete zip mix mortar Zip & Mix Instant Mortar Repair from QUIKRETE

Last year QUIKRETE introduced their Zip & Mix Fastset Repair mortar which is basically concrete in a bag. You simply mix it with water and it is ready for use for small and easy repairs. No need to mix an entire bag of concrete or deal with a mess from cleaning and using a large bucket.

Due to the immense popularity of the Zip & Mix repair mortar they are now offering Vinyl Concrete Patcher, Hydraulic Water-Stop Cement, Anchoring Cement and Mortar Mix in the same unique packaging that allows the material to be mixed directly in its pouch. Without the need of a pail or trowel, users simply unzip the package pouch, break through the protective seal, add the required water and kneed the mixture to the desired consistency.

Specific instructions including the amount of water and application process are outlined in detail on the Zip & Mix package pouch of each product. The QUIKRETE line of Zip & Mix products are available in three-pound pouches at home centers nationwide for approximately $6-$7.

Here’s a quick demo video.

    I was discussing Trex with one of the homeowners during the East Dwell Home Tour. Evidently they had originally had an IPE deck in their backyard. It was replaced after one year with Trex since it is in full sun and buckled. I was going back and forth between IPE and Trex and decided to go with IPE for my porch. It’s been one year and I just reapplied the protective stain. I never thought IPE would be half the work although I hope mine holds up better than the other homeowner’s deck.

      Thanks for sharing your experience with IPE. What type of stain did you use and is this the first treatment you’ve done in a year?

        This is the first application since the initial installation a year ago. Messmer’s U.V. Plus Sealer was recommended from Advantage Lumber. It darkened the finish to a mahogany color. It goes on quickly as I was able to do 600sqft in about an hour.

    Trex decking prices are quite high when you compare them to the prices of other decking material. However, there are advantages to paying the higher Trex decking prices when you want a quality deck.
