How to Repair a Hole on a Concrete Surface

Skill:  Novice DIY'er

Repair holes in your concrete surfaces before you refresh your home with a new coat of paint!

For Best Results:

Refer to our how-to for helpful steps on repairing holes.

 
Step 1

Remove any loose debris from the hole. Wipe the area clean with a water-dampened rag.

TIP:
Use a 5-in-1 painter's tool to remove hard-to-reach debris. This will allow the concrete patching material to bond tightly to the damaged area.
Step 2

Using a putty knife, spread a thin layer of concrete patching material into the hole.

TIP:
To create an even surface, always smooth out (feather) the patching material 1"-2" beyond the repaired area.
Step 3

Using a wet sponge, blend the repaired area into the existing surface.

Step 4

Allow the area to dry.
