Highlights:

Step 1: Clean the Crack

Clean the crack with a stiff brush.

Step 2: Mix the Patch Product

Mix the concrete vinyl patch product, which is made of vinyl resin, sand and cement. Simply add water to it, and you're ready to go.

Step 3: Apply the Patch

Use a wet trowel to apply the patch. Keeping the trowel wet will prevent the patch from curling. Smooth the patch with a trowel.

Step 4: Allow to Cure, Paint

Allow to cure for 24 hours before walking on it. If you're using a patch like this on a driveway, wait about three days before driving on it. Paint so the color will be uniform.
