Concrete finish after rain, new pour
Asked Jul 19, 2007, 08:01 AM
Thanks for reading. A few days ago I had a color patio poured where a broom finish was applied. The broom finish was consistent until the next day after we had some rain. There was roughly 15 hours after the pour to the time when it rained. It only rained for about 20 minutes our so, a moderate down pour. The broom finish now has smooth spots that are recessed from the initial broom finish which look like rain drops. The areas closest to the house don't have these smooth spots. Is this affect something caused by the rain or due to settling or what? I've not fully paid the contractor for the job and we're meeting tomorrow to discuss my concern. I would like input from sources not involved with the transaction, a less bias opinion.
