Used when repairing concrete or when applying or repairing stucco, concrete slurry is a smooth, rather liquid version of regular concrete. It serves to bind or marry the old concrete surface to the new one, resulting in a secure bond between the two surfaces. Commercial slurry mixes are available, but they tend to dry and harden almost before you can use them. Homemade slurry gives you a longer window of time to apply it before it hardens.

  1. 1

    Place 1 qt. of Portland cement powder to a small plastic pail.

  2. 2

    Add 1/2 cup of water slowly, mixing well. Add enough additional water so the mixture becomes the texture of latex paint or maple syrup.

  3. 3

    Add 1/4 cup waterproof white glue to the mixture and stir well.

Tips and warnings

  • Only mix as much slurry as you will use in 15 to 20 minutes, because it dries quickly, especially in hot, dry weather.
