Concrete Restoration Project this Spring
According to the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the spring and autumn months are the most effective time to pour concrete and commit to concrete restoration projects. Why is this the case? For starters, temperature plays a huge role in concrete’s capacity to dry effectively. More specifically, hot weather creates problems with the mixing, the placing, and the curing of cement concrete. When temperatures rise above 80%, this can adversely affect the properties and serviceability of the concrete.
In a report researched by an ACI committee, research suggests, “Environmental factors, such as high ambient temperature, low humidity,
high wind, or both low humidity and high wind, affect concrete properties
and the construction operations of mixing, transporting, and placing of the
concrete materials. ” In other words, contacting a professional Concrete Restoration contractor is very important when considering a concrete restoration project. The process of restoring concrete is not something that can be done alone. It is a time consuming job that requires expert knowledge and experienced handlers.
Aesthetic Appeal and Safety Concerns
Aside from the time of year, you should also have a pretty clear understanding of why you need concrete foundational work done on your home or business. Typically, there are two reasons that call for concrete restoration work: 1) Aesthetic Appeal-which means beautifying your home and business or 2) Safety Concerns-cracks, gaps, and un level concrete can be very dangerous. Many times clients will call a professional because they want to fix the safety concerns and get increased image appeal as well. After all, adding more value to your home makes sense since this is the place you live in, work in, and raise a family in. Wanting a more beautiful home makes a lot of sense.
