Meanwhile, the company is making it fast and easy for anyone to successfully complete a concrete project with new Fast-Setting Concrete Mix Bonus Bags, which contain 60-pounds or 20 percent more material in each bag.

Designed to require no mixing, harden in 20-40 minutes and gain enough strength to build on in two hours, the mix is ideal for setting a variety of posts including fences, decks, mailboxes, trellis and basketball goals.

It’s also recommended for pouring sidewalks, patios, driveways and other concrete surfaces that need to reopen for foot or vehicle traffic quickly. The new Quikrete Fast-Setting Concrete Mix Bonus Bags are available nationwide starting on March 31 as part of Spring Black Friday, which is the annual promotion of home improvement by retailers.
