Curing is one of the most important and also the most often neglected phase of good concrete construction. Poorly cured concrete is more likely to crack and will not be as durable.
Curing should last for at least 3 days, and as long as 7 days, if practical. Try to avoid driving or leaving objects on the surface of the concrete. There are several methods of curing. Curing should begin as soon as possible after the finishing operations. That is why Best Concrete Concepts will spray your fresh concrete with a high grade cure and seal spray.
There are many different types of sealers and can be applied by brush, roller or by using a low-pressure airless sprayer. Application should be made per manufacturer’s instructions.
By following these installation guidelines and combining them with good workmanship, you’ll have a concrete driveway that will make a lasting impression for many years.
