Curing

Q: How long does it take concrete to cure? And what does that mean?

Darrick: It takes concrete 28 days to cure or completely finish processing. In 7-10 days, concrete reaches about 80% of its strength. Concrete gains strength as it hydrates. Hydration initially appears to be a rapid process, but hydration slows down as time goes on. To measure the ultimate strength of a concrete project you would have to wait several years.
