A concrete surface can be made smooth or rough and it can be made to simulate wood. It can be finished with an infinite variety of designs, display richly colored aggregate, or possess one a number of solid hues, depending on the job and customer requirements. These are all achieved with a variety of finishing techniques used in the construction field today. One method of finishing includes stamped, scored and rendered finishes. For a stamped finish, a lightweight aluminum tool is continuously stamped in as one tool is placed from of another. In addition concrete surfaces while still plastic can be scored in random geometric designs with a jointer or groover or a bent piece of 1 /2 or 3 /4 inch copper pipe. So called applied or rendered concrete surfaces are achieved by the pebble dash, the wet dash and the roughcoat method. Turning to hardened concrete, once again numerous methods are available to obtain pleasing effects. High speed power tools will produce a smooth concrete surface. The technique of wet rubbing is often utilized shortly after forms have been removed. The dry grinding technique is used on dry surfaces to remove form marks and to polish the surface. Another type of finishes are formwork finishes. Joint lines of either fought or dressed lumber, and even the grain of wood, can be impressed on concrete. Another way to achieve a concrete surface with striking effects is to glue rubber sheeting to the forms.
