Whysos they need to go over and over again with the finisher?
It looked shi y and done just before the finisher came the last time then it looked worse again somehow
I would not want to do that for a living.

Great work on both the video and the garage.....that poor guy running that gas-powered finisher...makes me cough watching him!
Not only was it a gas powered trowel inside, he had a torpedo heater blowing in under the plastic.

It was cold that day. Even with 2% calcium it took forever for the top "cream" to set up. I wanted a slick finish and it turned out perfect.

Slick concrete floor plus the smallest bit of snow and it is like walking on ice.
I told my concrete guy "When this floor gets wet I want to fall down". In other words I wanted a perfect slick finish.

My garage floor is done like that also...so easy to sweep, drag or push boxes, etc. The driveway outdoors, of course, is a slight broom-finish for better traction.
