RE: Concrete and Drizzle

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Assuming the worst and it is flat work.

If it is a light drizzle the only problem will be in finishing.  If it is a 
broom finish there is no problem.  If it is a steel trowled finish and it is 
indeed a light drizzle, have them drag a hose across the surface to remove 
any standing water.  Do this periodically and you should be able to get by.

Cover the surface with plastic after it is finished in case the drizzle gets 
more serious.
