Can it be too hot or too cold to place new concrete?

Concrete can be difficult to properly cure in extreme temperatures.

When the temperature is too hot, water is evaporated from newly placed concrete. When the temperature is too cold, hydration slows to nearly a standstill. During the curing period the concrete should not be exposed to temperatures below 10 degrees.

Can concrete be waterproof?

Yes, it can be. We use a product called Xypex also known as Xypex-Admix-C-1000-NF.
