Did you know that fall is a prime month for concrete? It’s true. It’s mostly because the fall is a season of predictable forecasts and moderate but neutral temperatures. It’s important, however, to remember that concrete and shotcrete work can be performed in any season, if safeguards are in place; but, mild and moderate temperatures present desirable conditions to do work.
Shotcrete and concrete jobs are best done when temperatures are forecast to remain consistent throughout the day and into the night. For instance, if you plan to pour concrete the night before a huge storm, or when a front is forecast to move through and drop the temperatures twenty degrees or more, then it would likely be a good idea to wait to pour until the forecast appears neutral. It’s also important to watch changes in the barometric pressure and the humidity levels, although in Montana the humidity extremes are usually not an issue.
