Concrete problem in garage?


Okay, we're back on track. The floor is definitely going to be demolished and re-poured next week. The builder and his concrete subcontractor are standing by their product and are going to make this right. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for all the advice.

Concrete problem in garage?


Tomorrow's the big day. I'm a little concerned about the schedule though. Here's what they intend to do.

Tuesday
1. Remove hot water heater, HVAC, and stairs
2. Jackhammer floor and remove debris
3. Ready garage for new floor
4. Pour new concrete floor

Wednesday
1. Replace hot water heater, HVAC, and stairs

Is this possible? Doesn't it take concrete a few days to set up?

No real structural problem with setting light equipment the next day - especially in your climate with the warm raw materials in the concrete. They usually walk on the slab and saw control joints for crack control in 6 or 7 hours.

The only problem could be scratches and scuffs on the concrete. Make sure they use some cardboard or similar to eliminate cosmetic problems.
