Job Description:

An experienced concrete finisher or tradesman who works with concrete by placing, finishing, protecting and repairing concrete on construction projects. Responsible for setting the concrete forms, ensuring they have the correct depth and pitch. Pours the concrete either directly from the concrete truck chute, concrete pump, concrete or wheelbarrow. Works to pour the concrete in place by using shovels and rakes and at times uses a straightedge back and forth across the top of the forms to "screed," or level, the freshly placed concrete. After leveling the concrete, they smooth the surface using either a hand trowel, a long handed "bull float" or powered floats. After the concrete has been leveled and floated, concrete finishers press an edger between the forms and the concrete to chamber the edges so that they are less likely to chip. Broom and stamp finishes are a couple of different finished products for outdoor concrete after the trowel-finish is complete. The broom finish is used to prevent slipping on the concrete, and the stamp finish is used for looks. Must have a knowledge of how to build and finish a head on curb and gutter sections.
