Kansas City concrete pouring with hot temperatures

For many people this is the time they are trying to get their summer projects done including pouring a new concrete patio or driveway.  There are some key things to remember if your pouring concrete this time of year, and to ask your contractor about so you end up with a quality product.

  • if its hot and windy it is a good idea to put off the pour or pour in the evening or morning (the top dries out too quick and causes future issues)
  • make sure the concrete has a “cure” put on it after it is poured or it is cured with water
  • a delay can be added to slow the concrete such as Fritz Pak mini delay
  • Hire a Kansas City concrete contractor that knows what they are doing… contractors with good experience won’t risk a concrete pour
