How to Repair Concrete Statues

Updated February 21, 2017

Although concrete statues weather naturally, on occasion they can break. Repairing a concrete statue is a simple process if you choose to do it. Depending on the type of break, some people enjoy the way broken or chipped statues look, as it contributes to their aged appearance.

Clean the broken area of the statue thoroughly. Scrub it with a soft brush to remove any debris.

Follow kit instructions for preparing 15 minute epoxy. Apply a thin layer of the 15 minute epoxy to both sides of the break.

Press the two pieces together and hold them together according to the manufacturer's directions. The time involved usually ranges from thirty seconds to one minute.

Allow the epoxy to dry completely. The statue should cure for about 24 hours before it is handled.
