concrete finish

Definition

Construction

  • The smoothness, texture, or hardness of a concrete surface. Floors are trowelled with steel blades to compress the surface into a dense protective coat. Walls that are exposed to the weather are often ground witha carborundum stone or wheel, with cement then added to fill the small voids. A smooth surface is desired so that water cannot enter the small holes, freeze, and deteriorate the surface.
