This Year’s TOH Top 20 Building Materials to Be Revealed in the July/August Issue of This Old House Magazine and Online at

QUIKRETE® is proud to have its new Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer recognized as one of the TOH Top 20 Building Materials of the Year. Curated by This Old House magazine’s editors after months of research, review, testing, and input from industry pros, The TOH Top 20 Building Materials of the Year list continues the brand’s tradition of crowning the freshest, game-changing products of the year for construction and remodeling projects.

“We were impressed to see so many innovative building-product launches this year which made winnowing down the field especially challenging,” said Thomas Baker, TOH Building Technology Editor.

In naming QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer to the list, This Old House said, “Historically, the products used to smooth rough, spalled concrete have had a tendency to peel off. But this polymer-modified mix won’t. It forms a chemical bond with its substrate that’s so tenacious it’s stronger than the concrete itself.”

Designed as an easy, affordable and effective way to renew old, worn out concrete driveways, sidewalks and patios, QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer is a proven shrinkage compensated repair material four times stronger than the concrete itself. Applied with a squeegee, trowel or brush, one 40-pound bag will cover approximately 20 square-feet at 1/4 inches thick or approximately 90 square feet as skim coat. The renewed concrete, which cost 90 percent less to resurface than replace, can be walked on in eight hours and driven on time of 24 hours.
