The Crack Repair
- Mix product according to package instructions.
- Sakrete Top’n Bond can be hand mixed for small repairs but can also be drill mixed when using full bags for large repairs.
- Start this repair by filling the crack with Sakrete Top’n Bond. By using a margin trowel for this step, the repair material will be easily manipulated when pressed into the open crack.
Leveling the surface area
- Tape off an area around the repair that will allow the raised section to be adequately leveled off and feather edged. This step will also ensure a neat and clean transition area when it’s time to remove the tape.
- Apply Top’n Bond to this section and smooth out the material with a straight edge trowel.
- Remove the tape and begin smoothing out the repair.
- Notice the straight edges. This will allow for more consistency when feather edging the material.
- Feather edge the area with the straight edge trowel.
After allowing the Top’n Bond to dry for several minutes, use a paint brush at the edges of the repair area to blend the Top’n Bond material to the existing concrete.
This will give the surface a textured finish which will prevent the area from being slick.

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.
