When the average daily temperature falls below 35 degrees Fahrenheit for more than one day, concrete sidewalks shall not be poured without protective measures to prevent damage to the concrete by freezing. The Proposer shall submit their proposed protective methods to the project manager for approval 1 week prior to concrete installation. Before placing masonry on older work, apply heat in such a manner that frost, ice, or snow will be completely removed and the temperature of the surface is brought to a minimum temperature of 50 degrees. Concrete shall be protected from freezing for a minimum of 3 days. Spreading of salts or chemicals on older work to remove ice and snow is not permitted. Supply temporary enclosures, artificial heat and such other protective methods as needed to protect masonry from cold temperatures. Proposer is responsible for danger to workers and carbonization of masonry and concrete resulting from the use of salamanders or other heating devices, which directly exhaust CO gases.   H. Quality of Work. All masonry materials shall be new from manufacturers and suppliers who specialize in masonry products. Strike all mortar joints to match existing joint style. Mortar color shall match as closely as possible to existing. Excavation shall be made to the required depth and to a width that will permit the installation and bracing of the forms. The foundation shall be shaped and compacted to a firm, even surface, all soft and yielding material shall be removed and replaced with acceptable material. The foundation shall be thoroughly moistened immediately prior to the placing of the concrete. Edges of adjacent concrete or building structure should be properly protected to prevent staining from concrete. Forms shall be of wood or metal and shall extend for the full depth of the concrete. All forms shall be straight, free from warp, and of sufficient strength to resist the pressure of the concrete without springing. Bracing and staking of forms shall be such that the forms remain in both horizontal and vertical alignment until their removal. All form material must be removed at completion. Steel Mesh reinforcement shall be used across the full width of commercial and industrial use driveways and shall be placed at mid-depth. Steel mesh shall be raised to ensure no contact with subsurface or form material. Bricks shall be laid level, plumb, and square. No point along the bottom of any course shall be more than 1/4 inch higher or lower than any other point within 10 feet along the bottom of the same course. Plumb lines shall be used for all installations Rebuild walls, etc. to match the original design. Lay out work so minimum cutting is required, using only whole brick or block where possible. Where cutting is necessary, cut brick or block to neat, true line without chips on exposed faces. Conceal cut faces where possible. Do not lay brick or block less than ¼” in length in exposed work. If any brick or block must be removed or shifted after it has been laid, remove setting mortar, clean brick or block thoroughly, apply fresh mortar and re-lay. Solidly fill with mortar intersections between bricks or blocks and other materials. Solidly fill joints and line pin holes. When brick or block laying has been delayed for more than one hour, clean masonry of exposed mortar, then wet by water spray when necessary. Amount of wetting depends on rate of absorption of brick or block at time of laying. When being laid, brick or block shall have a suction sufficient to hold mortar and absorb excess moisture, yet leave mortar sufficiently damp so it remains plastic enough to permit brick to be leveled and plumbed after being laid without breaking mortar bond. Mortar joints: Do mortar applications promptly. Construct mortar joint sizes to match original joint style.    Provide full head and bed joints. Properly butter masonry unit edges. Completely fill joints: bed, cross, end, and head. Do not tool joints prematurely before initial mortar set. Tool joints without damaging mortar.

In some cases joints will be tooled to match existing sidewalks in 3 X 3 patterns or as directed by the project manager. These dummy joints shall extend into the concrete for at least 1/3 of the depth and shall be approximately 1/8 inch wide. Expansion joints shall be formed around all appurtenances such as manholes and utility poles for the full depth of the sidewalk. Expansion joint filler 1/2 inch in thickness shall be installed between concrete sidewalks and any fixed structure such as building. This expansion joint material shall extend for the full width and depth of the walk. Joints between new and old concrete shall be straight and clean upon completion. Provide and install metal ties for bonding as required by building code and as specified herein Assure compliance in types, sizes, spacing, depth of anchoring, and corrosion resistance. Parge and waterproof foundation walls as listed in the Scope, required by the building code, or specified herein. Parging shall be smooth, consistent, and provide full coverage. Parge or otherwise treat walls as required to receive backfill. Do not backfill prior to proper curing of parging. Use waterproofing manufacturer’s recommended curing procedures. Backfill as necessary. Granular backfill of the specified or ordered gradation shall be placed in layers at the locations shown or as ordered. The backfill layers shall not exceed 6 inches of computed depth unless otherwise directed. Granular backfill shall be compacted. Finishing: Concrete shall be finished by use of wood, magnesium and steel floats by skilled concrete finishers. Properly finished concrete will be flat, free of pits and have clean trowelled edges and brushed surface. Edges: All outside edges and joints shall be edged with an edging tool having a radius of 1/4 inch. No plastering of the surface will be permitted. After floating, edging and jointing, the surface shall be brushed by drawing fine-grained broom over the surface to produce a non-slip surface. Protection: Plastic sheets or other approved materials shall be placed in close contact with the finished concrete as soon as the concrete has set sufficiently to avoid damage from any placement of coverings. The protective covering shall be maintained vapor-proof in close contact with the concrete for the entire 3-day period or as directed by the project manager. During curing, all traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular shall be excluded. Requirements for concrete protections may change based on job site and will be discussed by the Proposer with the project manager prior to concrete installation. Water repellent with linseed oil may be applied on horizontal surfaces by any approved means. If a sprayer is used, the nozzle shall be held within 18 inches of the concrete or as directed. Two coats of linseed oil mixture shall be applied. The first shall be at a rate sufficient to obtain maximum penetration, taking care to prevent the material from discoloring curbs or other parts of the work. The second coat shall be applied as a seal coat, with attention given to the lighter appearing areas. The rate of application shall be approximately 0.025 gallons per square yard for the first coat, or an average of approximately 25 square yards per gallon. The second application shall not be made until the concrete has regained its dry appearance and in any event not until at least 24 hours have passed.
