Foundation patch (superficial)


I have a slab on grade foundation. The foundation doesn't have any cracks, but it isn't smooth in a few areas. It just has some indentions. I am going to paint the exposed foundation, so I would like to patch these areas. What is the best product for this?

A little hydraulic cement would work pretty well assuming the surface is clean. Hydraulic cement is very pasty and doesn't really have much of any aggregate, so it goes on like smooth peanut butter. You might want to rough up the surface just to be sure it has something to grab onto.

Thanks. Do they sell this at the box stores? What about some type of cement patch or stucco patch?

Or use a vinyl patching cement. This of the hydraulic cement are both available at box stores. Clean and rough up as suggested removing any loose material. Then apply a bonding agent to help the old and new cement stick.
