Question 8. How does temperature effect concrete?

The temperature is a very key part of the curing process. On hot days when concrete is curing, the heat causes excessive moisture to evaporate from the concrete. However, on the other hand if the temperature drops too close to freezing, hydration will occur at a snail's pace. This is why we always recommend using a wet-curing method.  Call to ask us more about the methods we employ to protect new concrete from summer heat.
