DAMAGE & CARE: Newly installed concrete edging is susceptible to damage.
- Your new edging is a concrete product. Most concrete products take approximately 28 days to completely cure. Sod laying, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started after 7 days: however, extra precautions must be taken to prevent damage during the curing process.
- Keep children, pets and objects away from the curb for at least 48 hours. It will be hard to the touch at this point, however 28 additional days are necessary for full cure.
- During the 28-day curing process keep lawn mowers off and away from your curbing.
- If it begins to rain within 8 hours after North Texas Curb Your Nature LLC leaves the jobsite, the customer is responsible for covering the curb with plastic.
- Customer should turn off sprinkler systems for at least the first 72 hours. Irrigation, backwash from pools, condensation lines, or rain can damage the curb during the first 72 hours.
- Some fertilizers and chemicals will stain the curbing as they would any other cement product. The customer should alert those applying fertilizers to avoid spraying the product on the curbing. If fertilizer or chemicals have been sprayed on the concrete, the customer may wish to rinse the edging. North Texas Curb Your Nature LLC is not responsible for damage occurring from fertilizers and chemicals.
- The curbing may look “blotchy” for a few days while it is curing. This will go away as it cures. Concrete is darker in color when first mixed and will lighten as it dries. It may take up to 28 days to completely cure.
- Concrete curbing is a decorative product. It does NOT have the same strength as sidewalks, driveways or home foundation. Care should be taken by the customer to not walk, stand, sit, or place heavy objects on the curb as cracking can occur.
- Curbs along vehicle traffic areas such as: gravel drive ways, concrete driveways, parking lots and asphalt are susceptible to increased cracking, movement and abuse. At the customers expense, an additional 4-inch footing is recommended as a foundation to minimize these affects. Curb Your Nature is not responsible for damage caused by vehicles.
