Protect freshly poured concrete
In temperatures of less than 3°C, you should always cover freshly poured concrete for 24 hours. This will protect it while it cures and ensure the moderate temperature it needs to reach its intended strength. You can use thermal blankets to protect the concrete from the cold or frost, and, if it is going to be particularly windy, you could even set up a windbreak.
By following these tips, you should be able to ensure that your newly poured concrete is not affected by the winter weather as it cures. Once it has reached its intended strength, it will be able to resist the freezing temperatures, frost and wind that come with winter in the UK!
