Concrete step

Postby fcwoods99 » Thu Jun 11, 2009 8:15 am

Just took wood away from step I have built out of concrete and obviously not done best of jobs as ugly holes in areas of step on the concrete !

You did not tamp it in layers as you filled the formwork. Render the step with a sharp sand/concrete mix to correct the problem.
