Concrete Forms Question

How long do you leave the forms on after the pour?
Do you spray the concrete with water twice a day for a week or do you cover it for a week?
I thank you in advance for your help.

When to remove forms? The pros do it the same day!!


Hi Henry,

As the Groovy Concrete says you can carefully remove the forms the same day, but if you are not in a hurry, take your time and wait as long as you can.

As to keeping it wet, you are better off with a good curing compound sprayed on just as you finish troweling or brooming – or stamping – see your local dealers or ask your concrete company. There are hundreds on the market.

Yours,
Rusty
