You CAN build a house in Winter!Janice
Myth #1 : Concrete poured in winter contain additives that make the concrete weaker.
It’s true that additives are added to the concrete mix during cold weather conditions. But what’s important to note is that concrete with additives are not significantly different in strength than those without, when both are fully cured. Of course, there are low temperature limits that make pouring concrete not feasible. There are also ways to protect newly poured concrete from the cold, such as using blankets and straws, but even these have their limits, and sometimes it’s simply easier to wait for a cold snap.
