To the weary hard working concrete finisher
"I was surprised at the results!" - John
I am a concrete contractor and have been finishing concrete for 30 years. I have experienced a vast number of different job sites with many types of concrete work . My business has been for the most part, in residential work and light commercial work.
As the years passed, I began to search for tools that would make this physically challenging job easier. I thought there had to be a better way. I was amazed to find that there wasn't much on the market. The way that concrete has been placed and finished hasn't changed in many years. Consequently, I began to fabricate my own tools for the trade. I was surprised at the results! My own concrete finishing tools turned out better than I had expected. It not only made my job much easier but it allowed me time and ease to be more creative. My customers were delighted with the wonderful creative designs I now could make. It seemed to me that this product should be marketed and made available to others in this trade who also were looking for an easier softer way.
For instance, with the Plasteek Groover TM, I can get on the concrete sooner and can put my expansion cuts in while the concrete is still very wet. This tool enables you to use the groover right after you bullfloat or fresno. Thus I can create a mosaic masterpiece with the expansion cuts, which should be put in regardless. The end product is a happy customer and a job that you feel proud to walk away from.
The tool can be adapted to fit your screw-in or clip-on bull float handle, and that way you don't have to get on your hands and knees (like a dog) and put the cuts in by hand after the concrete has begun to set up. It's changed my life and I know it will change yours.
