How long should your concrete footing cure?
That depends on the concrete, as well as weather conditions, and the load the concrete would be subjected to. Concrete gains strength over time and the usual benchmarks are 7 days, and 28 days. At 28 days concrete has usually cured to nearly its maximum strength. For a concrete footing in a residential environment say a deck or home the concrete will usually cure for a minimum of three days before the formwork is removed and the rest of the structure is built. For a commercial or civil project the curing is subject to the engineers discretion.
