Hi Everyone!

My name is Fran and I'm new to the boards. I am deeply frazzled right now because I have been searching and searching for someone to help me with a problem that I thought no one else had until I went browsing and came across a post from someone who had the same exact problem that I'm having now. This is the message I read:

"The corner of the concrete slab on my front porch has a chunk missing from it. It was like that when I bought the house. The chunk is on the lower part of the corner. How do I repair something like that? Do I need to frame something under it for new concrete to dry? I have never worked with concrete before."

I couldn't find any reply for this message so I am putting it out there again in hopes that someone can help me. Someone PLEASE HELP!! Thanks

Glenn Good

Thank you, Glen for responding.

I'm not sure how to tell you how big the chunk is, I guess maybe about the size of your hand. It's right on the corner. There is also another piece a few inches away from it that's about the same size. I sure hope you can help me, I have no idea what to do about it, but I am very good at following directions. Thanks again!

If you like the look of epoxy stone the repair is easy. We often use our vertical paste to repair missing edges and corners on steps, even repair the underside of the bullnose of pools. Once that dries the patio can be paved with epoxy stone. If you are interested email me and I can locate an installer in your area. Good luck!
