  1. I’d wait and put some old fence under the foundation to take the expansion and contraction avoid cracking

  2. as Long as they R not calling for a down pour you should be OK, we poured a patio and side walk and had to water it w/ the hose once a day for a while,it is supposed to help the concrete expansion and settling and keep the underground soft and damp( not sopping wet) until cured, it turned out beautiful, ask the contractor who is doing it though, we live in Ohio and had no problems…

  3. probably fine, concrete begins to set up rather quick, the full cure is what takes time. If it’s (light) showers, it’ll probably be better for the curing of the concrete, as it will very slow the process. if it’s heavy rain, postpone, you can always cover it with visqueen after you’re done with the work to protect it from rain.

    Talk to the person that will be doing the concrete work, if they choose to do it in the rain and it’s ruined, it’s their responsibility to make it right.. make sure you read and comprehend the contract.

    The company providing the actual concrete can also adjust their moisture content per the weather conditions.

  4. a light rain wont hurt it but you have to watch out for places where you might get a steady drip…these will bore small holes in concrete less than a day old…
