As hot weather hits, constructors need to adapt to the hot-weather conditions that my impact the installation of construction materials. Many materials act differently in hot weather as to cold, and certain precautions and steps should be taken to ensure a successful installation.
At W. R. Meadows, many of our products are impacted by climatic conditions and concrete repair products, in particular, must be applied carefully in the summer months. To make this process easier, and to help educate and inform our clients, we’ve developed a number of installation guidelines to help make installations error-free.
Our hot-weather guideline for our repair mortars and non-shrink grouts is require reading as the weather is warming. This detailed guideline document covers the application of water-based cement products in hot weather and details the steps that must be taken to minimize the potential for jobsite issues. This guideline covers all our poplar concrete restoration products, such as Meadow-Crete GPS, Meadow-Patch 20, and CG-86. The guideline features American Concrete Institute recommendations, temperature ranges where issues could appear, curing information, and much more. Also available is a handy PDF document that can be printed and shared.
At W. R. Meadows, we value education and we hope this guideline helps our clients install our products with ease and precision. If you have any questions about this guideline, or would like to see other guidelines created, please comment below.
