Concrete is a wonderful material. When it is installed, it is soft and almost liquid, so it’s easy to place inside the forms and can be finished with several different surface textures. When it has completely cured it is strong and hard and resistant to impact and weight. Between those two states there is a curing time that is needed for the concrete to develop its full strength and hardness. At Richfield Concrete, we understand that you are eager to start using your new Minnesota driveway, patio, sidewalk, or other concrete project. We’re also eager for that, but need to give you the information you need to avoid damaging your new concrete during that curing period.
