Here's your chance to win $25!

You can call it a bribe. Or incentive. Or pocket change. But I've got 10 American Express gift cards to give away to readers who are willing to tell me more about their work and what they want from Concrete Surfaces.

Why, you say?

Well, within a relatively short amount of time — a couple of decades, really — polished and decorative concrete have grown from niche to mainstream design elements. Our sector now has its own trade show, and you've got a few good associations to join. (FYI: The Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association recently added a new membership category for contractors who are adding concrete polishing and staining as a service.)

As the scope of your work evolves with the industry, what you want and need from Concrete Surfaces may change as well. And it's my job to anticipate your changing needs, and provide you with what you want more of.

This is why I’m asking you to take a few minutes to participate in our online survey at There are only 19 questions to answer, and most are multiple choice. Plus, if you provide your contact information we’ll enter you into a drawing to receive one of 10 $25 American Express gift cards.

Good luck!
