Filling Horizontal Cracks in Concrete
Featured Product: Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant
- Remove all loose and broken pieces of concrete out and away from the crack.
- Sweep the repair area. This will eliminate any dust and small items in and around the crack perimeter.
- Always wear gloves when using polyurethane-based repair material.
- Cut the tip of the tube to the appropriate size needed to fill the crack. Place the tube of Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant into a caulk gun.
- Begin filling the crack with Sakrete Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant.
- When repairing deep cracks, it may be necessary to re-apply multiple times if there has been no back-filling of the area.
- Some deep crack repairs may continue to level overnight. Re-apply the sealant as needed to complete the repair.
The Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant will feel tacky up to 24 hours after application. Deep cracks that require more material may have a longer set time.
Tip: For deep cracks, fill the void to within a .25 to .50 inch of the surface with sand or by using backer rod before applying the Polyurethane Self Leveling Sealant.
The material will remain flexible once set. This is designed to allow for flexibility in the repair area as the surrounding concrete moves with expansion and contraction.

Calculated results will reflect how many bags are needed for Block and Brick.
Enter the number of bricks (8" x 2" x 4") or blocks (8" x 8" x16") in the box below that you plan to use for your project. The calculator will then tell you the number of bags you need based on the different size of bags we carry.
This calculator is based on a 3/8" mortar joint. All yields are approximate and do not include an allowance for waste, uneven subgrade or any other variations from the joint size and brick and block sizes noted above.
Results will change if form of measurement is updated.
