Question: What is the best time of year to install a concrete driveway?
Top Answer (28% of 35 votes): Spring.

Answer: Fall
Explanation: Climate (September – November): Fall provides the lowest humidity and most stable temperatures for pouring exterior concrete. Frost and freezing temperatures typically do not become a factor until November. Scheduling new exterior concrete work can be difficult, since concrete suppliers and installers are typically busy finishing as much work as possible before winter arrives.
