These specialized workers finish top surfaces of concrete using tools such as brooms, smooth trowels and water to create the desired texture. This task includes inspecting finished concrete and removing imperfections. Concrete finishers place forms to control where concrete is being poured and help spread the concrete as it’s being poured to ensure the finished result will be level.
