A hand finish is when you see "swirls" or "fans" on the surface of the cement. A hand finish is created just as the name states. After leveling the cement the crew must get down and create these "swirls" or "fans" by hand. This is a very commonly practiced finish in our area and has been for many years.
A broom finish also is done basically as its name states. Once the leveling of the concrete is finished the crew uses special tools to create a clean finish on the surface of the cement. This practice has also been around for a long time and is also used often in our area.
When doing floors the cement finisher must use a trowel machine to create a smooth finish on cement. This finish is primarily done indoors; however, in certain circumstances it may be used to finish outdoors on surfaces such as patios and or other areas that the customer may require smooth surface finish.
