The Handyman's Guide to Concreting at Home
 
 


When the concrete has enough strength to support the traffic it will take (usually after seven days of curing), strip the forms away. Do not use metal tools to pry off forms because they may cause damage. If you’ve used form oil, the forms will be easier to remove and use for other projects. (See Cut and Place the Formwork).
