COLD WEATHER CONCRETING

Workability of ready-mix concrete is affected by weather. Certain precautions must be taken in order to ensure proper handling, placing, finishing and curing of the freshly placed concrete. Now that the weather is getting colder, the process of placing concrete calls for extra attention. As the temperatures drop (especially below 5 °C), concrete will lose moisture and heat rapidly, affecting its setting time, strength and long-term durability.
