New Rock Patch From Daich Coatings Makes It Easier to Fill Holes, Cracks, and Pitted Surfaces

Starting a new project oftentimes means beginning with a clean, smooth surface. Getting that surface level is now easier than ever with new Rock Patch™ filler, level and resurfacer from Daich Coatings.

Made with a tough polymer/stone formula, the pre-mixed compound comes out of the container ready to use. The cement-free product requires no messy mixing and can be used as a prep work step on both interior and exterior surfaces. Simply pop the lid, stir and apply.

Easy-Fix Solution

“Whether you need to fill cracks and holes on concrete walkways or smooth out the surface of a garage floor before recoating, Rock Patch is the solution,” says Peter Daich, president of Daich Coatings. “This odorless product has flexibility to it and can be worked with slowly. It doesn’t dry quickly like concrete. Take your time to smooth it into the location you wish to repair. Then let it dry to create a rock hard surface.”

Rock Patch completely resurfaces the area needed, forming a firm bond to the underlayment. The dry Rock Patch finish is impact, salt and moisture resistant. 

Suitable for both DIY home projects and large-scale industrial projects, Rock Patch is the ideal starting solution for cracked, broken surfaces before beginning covering projects with other Daich Coatings products. In addition to spot fixes, Rock Patch can be used as a full surface base for floor paints, decorative coatings, linoleum and more. It can also be used as a flooring and be left “as is” once sealed with TracSafe® Anti-Slip Sealer or Garage and Driveway Concrete Sealer from Daich Coatings to protect the surface from year-round weather and stains.

Preparation the Key to Success

“Because Rock Patch stands up to hot tires and foot traffic, it can be used as an entire floor covering,” says Daich. “As with any project, the key to success is preparation. For spot repairs, the crack, hole or pitted area should be clean, dry and free from debris before applying the product.

“If you’re resurfacing an area with Rock Patch, then the surface should be pressure washed to remove debris. An alternative is to scrub with our Concrete Safe Cleaner and Etcher. After rinsing, the area should be allowed to thoroughly dry before moving ahead with the application.”

Normal cure time is 24 hours for Rock Patch. Dry times should be increased when the product is applied thick or in damp, cool conditions.

Available in both one- and three-gallon containers, Rock Patch can now be purchased online in the USA and in Canada through The product will be available in starting in June online at The Home Depot® and Lowe’s®.
