Ever wonder what goes into a batch of award-winning, head-turning concrete? Artisans across North America (and abroad) share their tantalizing recipes for success.

Recipe: Decorative Concrete Broom Finish

Broom finishes provide an economical alternative to the removal and replacement of existing concrete. This system creates a flexible and durable finish that can be used to re-level, renovate, resurface and create decorative patterns and designs, with or without integral coloring. When sealed, the new finish will resist gas, oils, water, salts, freeze-thaw cycles and ultraviolet rays.
