We consider placing concrete without dig out and gravel fill/compact to be unacceptable - an excellent way to lose money just after the first winter cycle.
Also every job we look for potential problems. Whenever it is water drainage to looking for weak spots where concrete might crack.
Yes. Topsoil and any other organic matter must be removed before placing concrete. Organic materials are unstable and unable to provide uniform support for concrete slabs, they also are the main reason why concrete cracks in the winter time. Usual minimum is 4 inches of CA6(gravel).A properly prepared subgrade contains no organic material and is crucial to constructing a quality concrete pavement or slab on grade.
Because concrete isn’t flexible, it’s likely to crack during freeze/thaw conditions. This is perfectly normal and small cracks won’t compromise the concrete’s strength. These cracks can be addressed by placing “joints” or cuts to redirect cracking.
ALL CONCRETE WILL EVENTUALLY CRACK, QUESTION IS WHERE.
Concrete surfaces can flake or spall for one or more of the following reasons:
In areas of the country that are subjected to freezing and thawing the concrete should be air-entrained to resist flaking and scaling of the surface. If air-entrained concrete is not used, there will be subsequent damage to the surface.
Avoid applying deicing chemicals during the winter. Don’t use harsh acids to remove stains. Clean your concrete regularly and apply a sealant to protect it from the elements.
It all depends on the depth of concrete poured, the temperature outside, and the type of cement used in the mix. But on average, it takes around 2-3 hours to set and then around 7-28 days to fully cure and get full color .
