How to Use a Concrete Bonding Adhesive

If you have cracks or splits in a cement slab or on concrete steps, you can use concrete bonding adhesive to help cover them and repair the damage. It allows you to add or pour new cement onto an existing piece without having to first rough up the surface. Without the adhesive, repairing concrete involves a lot more work.

How to make coloured concrete

How to make coloured concrete. Take the concrete mix and pour the amount you want into a mound on your working surface. Then use the trowel to make a 'well' in the concrete mound. This will stop the colour solution from spilling everywhere when you pour it into the concrete. Now pour your colour solution into the well, just enough to fill it.
