Repairing a hole in a concrete wall

Eric212NYCJuly 9, 2011


Recently I had a new garage door installed. During the installation they had to chip a piece of concrete to fit the 2 x 4 wood framing. As a result I now have a 2 to 3 inch wide hole that is about 8 inches in height. The depth of the hole is about 3 inches. What is the best way to fill this hole?

From inside the garage I can see light coming in so the hole goes straight through. Went to Home Depot and they suggested using quikcrete to patch the hole followed by sand quikcrete mix to finish the outer portion.

Would post a picture but I don't see any link to upload.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
