American Society of Concrete Contractors Guide details concrete’s imperfections

The ASCC has published “Guide for Surface Finish
of Slabs on Ground,” a publication written by Ross
Martin and edited by ASCC’s Education and Training
The spiral-bound 21-page Guide was designed to help
contractors inform owners, specifiers, architects and
engineers of the surface finishes of slabs on ground, or
grade, that they can provide. The publication covers
variations in concrete color and texture and discusses
imperfections such as trowel marks, pinholes, delamination
and cracks. The full-color book includes
numerous photographs of imperfections.
