thoughts on pouring concrete at this time of year? trying to find a day without rain, and a decent temp is going to be tough but needs must... would you guys protect the concrete once its poured?

3 degrees and rising is the norm, adjust the slump according to temperatures.

Get a dry forecast with no rain or frost pour it early in morning pan it with power float after dinner give it an hour then pan it again to bring up the fat and blade it with power float in evening and a couple of times the next day. The summer time it would need to be done much quicker.

its looking alright, can see some of the lines/very very slight bumps from the screed, at the end of the day its going to be a garage floor, should be sound enough

it wont really matter mate, id probably prefer it how it is to flat/smooth

 

out of interest mate, would that self leveling compound be strong enough for jacks etc digging into it?

Chemical resin and threaded bar, drill the concrete a couple mill bigger than the bar, just a few pumps of Ken-fix, push threaded bar into it and tap it home (put a nut on top so it don't screw the threads up) leave it a few hours and rock solid, we dowel underpinning sections like this (just done two sides of an 8 storey block of flats)
