Why does the base need to sit so long before you can begin the next phase?

Why does the base need to sit so long before you can begin the next phase?

It is important to allow a 1 to 3 week period of time to allow the base to stabilize and harden before coming in with heavy equipment.

Answer

It is good to drive on the base during this time to help the compaction process. If there is a lot of rain and not a lot of heat during this time, you may even want to delay it longer.

A little patience up front allows for a better product in the end. AC Buy Knox will work with you to keep you up to date on the process of your base work and when the next phase can begin.
