Important Considerations of Cold-Weather Concreting

Cold weather concreting presents a range of challenges for contractors, particularly when working in very low-temperature environments. One of the primary challenges is the effect of temperature on the concrete’s setting and curing process. As temperatures drop, the hydration process of concrete slows down significantly. This delayed setting and strength gain can lead to construction delays, impacting project schedules and budgets. Engineers must carefully monitor and manage the concrete’s temperature during the placement and curing phases. This ensures the concrete achieves the desired strength and durability. Here are a few important considerations when we are preparing concrete in cold weather. Got the game on? Don’t miss a shot with SmartRock® in hand. Move faster. Cure better.
