How long is the curing time for concrete and mortar? – The typical curing period for concrete and mortar is 28 days. Temperature, humidity, and other variables can affect the curing period. Always refer to the product’s packaging for details.
Rain that falls on freshly-laid concrete can damage the surface and compromise a smooth and level finish. Even worse, if an excessive amount of extra water makes its way into the concrete mixture, this can result in concrete that is weak overall.
