Concrete Dos and Don’ts

Posted on September 25th, 2020 by Devine Bros

Cementing and concreting can be quite a long process, especially when it comes to creating a delicate and detailed project. However, no matter the construction site size or the amount of people working on the project, getting the job done right the first time should be your top priority. So to make the most of your time, it’s important to know the dos and don’ts of laying out this admixture.

Remember These Dos and Don’ts:

Do level the concrete to the appropriate flatness and build it should be at. 

Don’t forget to fully dampen and compact your sub-grade before placing the concrete.

Do remember to texture your surfaces so that they are slip resistant in the future.

Don’t place your admixture on top of water, mud, or frozen textures. 

Do finish the edges first, working on any hand-finishing parts as you move inwards. 

Don’t add water or have water on the surface during the finishing process. Dry conditions are suggested to get the job done properly. 

Do try to finish all the surfaces within the same time, to avoid different textures or uneven placements. 

Don’t burn the surface of the concrete. 

Do invest in the right protection and curing for afterwards, to ensure that it is weatherproof and long lasting. 

Don’t let any items or people go over the surface during its curing process

Do invest in a reliable company and a high quality concrete mixture

Of course, any project that involves concrete can be a tricky one. That’s why it’s important to have a team working with you that have the best admixtures to offer. Cut your construction time in half by getting the job done right the first time.
