5 Fast-Setting Concrete Projects You Can Do in a Day

Whether you’re fixing your home or enhancing it, Quikrete Fast-Setting Concrete helps get the job done.

Fast-Setting Concrete has special additives that allow it to set hard in just 20 to 40 minutes, so builders and DIYers like its efficiency and simplicity.

If you haven’t used this product before, here are some ideas that will inspire you. 

1. Fix a Leaning Fence

A leaning or sagging fence doesn’t have to be an eyesore. You can fix it in an afternoon and take pride in the result.

Just use a post hole digger to dig around the leaning post’s perimeter; dig around 14 inches deep.

Then use a two-sided post level to make sure each post is plumb.

Finally, pour concrete into the hole around each post and allow it to set to secure the posts in place.

2. Set a Basketball Post

Like to shoot hoops? Then your home needs a basketball goal.

So, grab a post hole digger and start digging! The hole’s edge should be, at most, 6 inches from your playing surface. A 24-inch-wide by 24-inch-deep hole should give your post the stability it needs for everyday use.

Next, pour 6 inches of gravel or crushed stone into the hole and use a 2-by-4 to level the base.

Then place the basketball pole in the hole and use a level to make sure it’s perfectly vertical. Pour Fast-Setting Concrete into the hole, just four inches below ground level.

Finally, pour water inside the hole and saturate the concrete. Make sure the water reaches the bottom of the concrete by stirring or stabbing the mixture with a stick.
