When to do saw cuts in new stamped concrete deck?

16 years ago

We have been waiting about 3 weeks for our stamped concrete deck to be poured. If the weather cooperates it may get done this week. Originally the concrete guy said he needed to do 2 pours on different days and then wait several days before doing the saw cuts. Now today he told me he will do 2 pours in 1 day and the saw cuts the next. I have seen some saw cut decks on this site that have not turned out well, and wondered if it had anything to do with being cut to soon after the pour. I asked him about not waiting and he said he was going to use a special blade, I think he called it a soft blade? I'd appreciate hearing from anyone that has experienced any of this, thanks.
