The Brush Finish
A decorative and functional finish for external slabs

It’s easy to spot a brush finished concrete floor as you’ll immediately see the textured looking parallel lines scratched into the concrete surface. A brushes finish created extra grip for vehicles and pedestrians as well as aiding drainage of water.

Brush finished floors are attractive when combined with troweled margin detailing.

The Brush Finish Process
Brush Finished Concrete Floors

When applying a brush finish to a newly laid concrete floor you need to act fast and catch the concrete whilst it’s still wet enough to allow the brush to run over it, but dry enough not to ruin any levelling work already carried out.

After laying:

  1. Skipfloat the concrete and wait for the perfect time to start applying the finish.
  2. Use the Powerfloat with a metal pan attached to blades to densify & flatten the surface.
  3. Take a bristled brush and carefully draw it across the surface creating parallel lines.
  4. Repeat in parallel passes.
  5. Have trowel margins along shutters to give an attractive border & accurate edge.
  6. Create a ‘bull nose’ edge with a trowel to give rounded joint edges & features.

A poorly applied brush finish can turn a newly laid floor into an eyesore if it’s not carried out with painstaking attention to detail. Despite the high grip properties of the finish you always want to ensure that a Brush Finish looks attractive and clean to all pedestrians using it.
