Our pour for the basement/footers and first floor wall went off yesterday ('til 2 A.M.). Anyway the finisher did not get started 'til around 4 P.M. and because things were in such hectic state we did not have the keyways ready. Now we are going to have to cut the breaks.

My question is (and I have seen this on a post before, looked in the concrete web forum as well) the finisher says he uses 15x15 as the general rule for breaks. I think I read 8 ft. was a good breaking point. (General information: slab is 48x60 with 9 pier columns ). How long before doing this is too late. I cannot get a saw till Sunday. 30 hours or so.

Thanks for the help...

Weather conspired to make concrete trucks slide down my driveway and that put my garage floor finisher behind.  He elected to cut them later, and came back about 3 days after the pour to cut them.  Cutting them early is better, the concrete is softer, but if you have to wait 30 hours, I don't think it will be the end of the world. 

Best of luck,
John

John,

Thanks, I rent the machine A.M. It is going to rain as well.

Slab looks good. We had two blowouts, but walls are plumb and standing tall.
