    Hi all, I am putting a 10x12 shed on a slab and securing it with "red head" bolts.

    I must have drilled one at a slightly bad angle, too close to the edge, and ended up popping out some of the concrete on the side of the slab. Here are a couple of pics:

    What's the best way to fix this, can I use SAKRETE Fast Set Patcher (shove as much in there as possible with a trowel) or something like that?

    thanks for any clues...

    I'd be be far more concerned with how close that pine siding is to grade.
    I would have sealed that bottom piece on all sides before even installing, and made sure I installed gutters to reduce splashback that will rot out the siding.

    This looks to be western red cedar siding.

    Current code calls for a minimum of 6" clearance from finished grade to any wood products on structure.

    If the damage from the expansion anchor is only in one area and this is nothing but a storage shed, I wouldn't be too concerned.

    I usually buy the concrete patch in the powdered form and mix quantities as needed. Trowel it in. Strike it even before it sets
    If water intrusion is a concern, get the hydraulic concrete patch. (this stuff goes off FAST!)
