Concreter’s must be able to work in all kinds of weather conditions such as extreme heat and humidity. For the most part, concrete cant be poured when it is very cold, raining or snowing as the concrete would be damaged, crack and not be cured. It is hard work, but rewarding once the project has been completed.
