On the off chance that you have an enormous solid floor or section, the most ideal approach to get a smooth completion is to utilize a power trowel.
As someone who does concrete finishing, I can let you know, figuring out how to utilize a power trowel will take some training.
In case you're leasing one, ensure the rental organization tells you the best way to begin, clutch, and move the machine both ways. This is significant for your very own security.
The most significant piece of getting your solid floor smooth utilizing a power trowel is realizing when to begin.
In the event that you start troweling too soon, you might make protuberances, plunges, or a wavy surface that you won't be content with.
In the event that you start past the point of no return, it'll be difficult to get the solid as smooth as you like.
There's a few different ways I test the solid to check whether it's prepared to begin control troweling.
Utilizing my hand, I press my fingers into the solid. On the off chance that I can just press into the solid around 1/8 to 1/4 inch, this reveals to me the solid is near or prepared to begin control troweling.
On the off chance that I can just press my fingers into the surface 1/8 inch, I give strolling a shot the surface. On the off chance that I just sink into the surface 1/16 to 1/8 inch with my feet, the solid is prepared to control trowel.
Significant: If you start control troweling and you start "sinking" in more than this or the power trowel begins delving into the surface and making waves or protuberances, simply stop and hold up a little longer at that point attempt once more.
On the off chance that the solid appears to be alright, at that point run the trowel in an east to west movement over the surface, covering the whole floor. Start farthest away from where you need to stop and work your direction in reverse.
At the point when you've troweled the whole surface you may need to stop and give the solid "a chance to dry out" some time before going over it once more.
The time it takes it to "dry out" will be incredibly directed by the outside temperature and if it's in the immediate sun. (Furthermore, how quick you are)
It will (should) take numerous goes with the power trowel to get an extremely smooth completion. Perhaps 3, 4, or 5 relying upon how quick the solid is restoring.
Cross your example each time you control trowel the surface. In the event that you began with an east/west example, go north/south next time, etc.
