Re: Concrete and Drizzle

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
David,

        The wet is O.K. but you will have to protect against rain drops directly falling on the concrete.  Rain drops will wash out the cement from the cement water paste matrix and leave you with a very bad surface.  Although the surface can be repaired it wouldn't look very good.

Regards,
