When Should You Add Retardant to Your Concrete?

When you are working with concrete contractors in San Francisco, you may want to ask about the different types of additives that are available for your project. Concrete work that is completed during a hot day may require retardants. During a warm, sunny day, wet concrete may dry more quickly than it should. Retardants are used to slow down the curing of concrete when outdoor temperatures soar. Without the use of a retardant, pouring concrete in hot weather could create a poor result.

With assistance from concrete contractors, you can make sure that your concrete construction services are completed correctly. Your contractors can assess whether a retardant will be required when you are pouring your concrete. If a retardant is not used when it is needed, the resulting concrete slab may lack structural integrity. Consulting with your concrete contractors about whether or not to use a retardant will help you make sure that your finished concrete dries to perfection.
