How long before the concrete goes hard?
Once Water is added to the mix at the plant, the chemical reaction commences and concrete starts to set between 1-2 hours from then. Setting times are dependent upon local weather conditions and the type of concrete ordered.
The concrete will require protective curing to prevent problems such as cracking, typically using a spray-on membrane or covering with plastic sheeting as soon as possible after placing.
