Freshly poured concrete rocks showing through top of it why?
Im building my home and
I'm not into concrete at all but I recently hired a well known concrete finisher to pour and finish my driveways and patio, It has been very cold here and now 4-5 days after it was poured you can see numerous rocks showing through the finish - was it done incorrectly or what went wrong? im very dissatisfied with the finish as I hired him to get a grade A job and dont know of another new construction house that has a finish like this? also I know they did not use curing blankets but I have seen lots of houses not use them during cold weather
i'm ' into ' conc & i never saw that could the pour have frozen & then rained flushing off the spalls ? ? ? we've placed in cold weather & never fail'd to use curing blankets - residential, commercial, highway, or heavy conc,,, i can't imagine what you describe & would LOVE to see a pic as would we all,,, what's the builder say when you ask him ? ? ? doubtful he's seen it either,,, who hired this sub - the bldr OR you ? ? ?
