In reply to poured concrete foundation by Tony on July 26th, 2001 02:55 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Tony,

I'm not a total expert in concrete but I'll get you started.

In hot weather, you want to avoid having the concrete dry too fast. Sometimes, this is why you see it covered w/plastic or you see someone 'misting' it.

As far as honeycombing, I have a couple of links I found that talk about it. Honeycombing apparently doesn't have anything to do w/the temperature. Instead, it has to do w/the consolidation (or settling) of the mix when it's poured. Review them and see.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Concrete, And ASK If You Cant Find It! - Search the site (if you can) or e-mail them directly w/your question/concerns ...

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: Of course, stick around to hear more about Honeycombing and the pouring of concrete in 95 degree weather from other Pros. (Others are 'around' ...)
