Concrete is one of the most critical material in any construction project as it will determine the structural integrity of a structure. For concrete, the best type to use in projects is a material with developed strength, an adequate amount of moisture for hydration, resistance to freezing and thawing, volume stability, and abrasion and scaling resistance. But how can this be achieved in managing projects in construction? It is through proper curing of concrete.

Curing concrete is identified as providing appropriate moisture, time, and temperature to allow the concrete to obtain the desired properties and quality for its intended use. The process of curing concrete is also essential to ensure the durability and strength development of concrete. This occurs immediately right after concrete placing and finishing and includes maintaining desired temperature and moisture conditions, both at near and depth surface, for extended periods of time.

In today’s blog, we’ll look at the best (and worst) concrete curing practices you can use for your next project, applicable for concrete contractors or even general contractors. If you want to learn something new, read through.
