Texture - how concrete is finished - is one of many elements that affects the way we perceive color on decorative concrete surfaces. For example, the reflectivity of a surface helps determine the final color of integrally colored concrete, says Rich . For more information on creating these finishes, see Finishing Concrete Slabs with Color and Texture by the Portland Cement Association. Selected Finishes. Broomed – Made by pulling special brooms across stiff, freshly floated or troweled surface. For variety, broom texture can be heavy or light, or in straight or wavy lines.
Stamped concrete is patterned, embossed or textured concrete that is made to resemble other media types such as wood, brick, or stone.

Finishing is the operation of creating a concrete sur- face of a desired texture, smoothness and durability. The finish can be strictly functional or decorative.
The appearance of blisters (Fig. 1) on the surface of a concrete slab during finishing operations is annoying. These bumps, of varying size, appear at a time when bubbles of entrapped air or water rising through the plastic concrete get trapped under an already sealed, airtight surface.
Experienced concrete. finish specified in Section M, “Ordinary Surface Finish,” concurrently with rubbing the surface. Where concrete patching is performed, rub these areas after the patch material has thoroughly set and blend the patch in with the surrounding area to produce a surface with uniform color and Size: 39KB.
These techniques include broom finishing, sandblasting, exposing of aggregate and more. Broom finishing can create shadow effects, "swirl" and "fan" patterns on colored concrete.
Sandblasting can be used to create designs, or to give the concrete a two-tone appearance by removing a layer of color. Your Online Construction Book Superstore. ; Construction Book Express. ; Checkout. Codes. Code Check Finishing Concrete with Color and Texture.

Hard troweling is a process by which a finisher uses a steel trowel to densify the surface of the concrete. This finish is optional and produces a hard, smooth surface. Repeated passes of steel troweling will result in a burnished finish, which has a mirror-like appearance.
Hard-troweled surfaces are not recommended for exterior concrete slabs. finish, indicating materials and methods used to produce the sand blast finishes. Review by the Engineer will be for color and texture only. Approved samples will become the Engineer's control samples. QUALITY ASSURANCE A.
