Setting Posts With QUIKRETE® Tops 2019 Project List
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 27, 2020--
Building decks and fences, installing mailboxes and basketball goals, and other post-setting projects landed at the top of many people’s “to-do” list last year. According to QUIKRETE ®, Setting Posts without Mixing was the most popular how-to project video in 2019. The leading manufacturer of pre-blended commercial-grade cement and concrete products, QUIKRETE identified the most popular projects based on more than 20 million how-to video views across its website, YouTube channel and other social media channels.
“Our video views really demonstrate a growing interest in a variety of concrete, stucco and masonry building projects,” said Frank Owens, senior vice president of marketing for The QUIKRETE ® Companies. “Setting posts is a prime example of a project people are confidently tackling thanks to the clear, concise and easy-to-understand instructions in the how-to video. What could be more simple than pouring dry QUIKRETE ® Fast-Setting Concrete in a hole around a post and soaking it with water? After setting in about 30 minutes, you can nail fence board or attach a mailbox to the post in just four hours. Sure, some other projects are more involved, but our how-to videos make people comfortable with the materials and process.”
