My 17 top tools for doing concrete floors, slabs and stamped concrete

Hi Everyone!

Mike here, if you've ever poured and finished concrete, you know it takes a specialized set of tools to do it successfully.

If you're a diy'er or your just starting you're own concrete business and you don't have the right tools, your results might not be as good as you like.

The one thing I learned early on is, concrete isn't very easy to fix after it hardens. If you don't get it to look the way you want the first time around, you'll be sorry.

Over the past 30+ years I've used a lot of different concrete tools.

I've figured out which tools give me the best results when I'm pouring and finishing concrete floors & slabs, doing stamped concrete, or installing pool decks, patios, and walkways.

Without these tools, I wouldn't be able to give my customers awesome looking concrete, or earn a comfortable living doing what I love.

I'm going to share with you the tools that I feel you absolutely need to have if you want to be successful doing concrete work like I do.

Tools for:

Screeding & leveling concrete

Sawing concrete

Stamping concrete

Checking and setting grades

Troweling concrete

Pouring concrete

Edging, grooving, brooming, floating concrete

If you're a do-it-yourselfer that does some concrete work or you're thinking of starting a concrete business (especially flatwork), or you already have a concrete business, then these are the tools you'll want to get to improve your results.

These are my recommended tools

Happy concreting,


p.s. Let me know if you already have or use some of these tools. Also, let me know if you have a favorite tool that I didn't mention.
