fall2

Fall

Climate (October – November): Fall temperatures can still be quite hot. Coastal regions will see temperatures moderate earlier, while the deserts remain very warm. Early winter storms can begin to erupt in the late fall.

Mix Designs: Standard mix designs are the norm. Eliminate retarders from mixes is normal as the temperatures start to decrease.

Placement and Curing Practices: Hot-weather concreting practices are in effect well into the fall in most areas of the region.

Special Equipment: Sprayers to apply curing compounds and surface evaporative control agents; plastic sheeting.
