How many days does cement take to cure completely?
Generally 30 days brings concrete to to specified compression strength. Concrete may take 30 years to cure. Answer Concrete will harden to about 80% strength in 2-3 days and close to 100% strength in 28 days. Concrete driveways should be towards the latter end prior to driving on them. Answer As a former concrete inspector, I would agree with the first answer. Answer Concrete takes 50 years to completely cure and then takes 50 years to break down

How long does it take the concrete to cure at Hoover Dam?
According to what I read in an article about this, it will take "centuries" for the entirety of the concrete that composes the Hoover Dam to completely cure. I don't know where I read that, but that fact has stuck with me. Amazing to think that concrete laid down by an overworked, underpaid young man during the height of The Great Depression, nearly 80 years ago now, will still be settling well after you and I are gone.

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.
