Concrete Dos & Don’ts

Congratulations on your new concrete!

Below are some things you need to know about your newly poured patio or driveway.

  • NO walking on it for 24-36 hours
  • NO driving on it for 7 days with standard vehicles / 10 days for heavier utility vehicles
  • NO sweeping the concrete with a broom. If necessary, you can use a blower
  • NO washing or staining the concrete for 30 days
  • NO washing vehicles on it for 30 days. Try and avoid any other chemicals as well
  • NO landscaping or back filling dirt around the edges for 7-10 days. Red dirt will stain the concrete

Doing these things will help ensure quality concrete. Should you have any questions, please let us know.
