Laying the Foundation: Phase 5
Foundation walls went up Wednesday, August 4th. These photos were taken Sunday, August 8. They show the state of the concrete after three days of curing in 90 degree temperatures. There's evidence of exposed aggregate and cracking. Some cracking is normal in poured concrete foundations and may have no effect on structural integrity. However, it's worth checking out, as the integrity of the foundation to water penetration in also essential and may be compromised by cracking.
