Broom finished concrete is the most popular concrete finish of all time. It is used in roads, driveways, sidewalks patios, etc.

Its classic timeless look along with its budget-friendly cost lead to the popularity of this finish.


Broom finished concrete gets its name from the application of a broomed texture to the concrete as it is being finished. Once the concrete has been trowelled smooth a large thin broom is used to create a textured finish. This texture is great for around pools or areas that receive water. It is a skid-resistant surface which is ideal for these areas.


Broom Finished Concrete is also very budget-friendly. It comes in at $10.00 per square foot to $11.00 depending on the complexity of the decking and total amount.

The difference between stamped concrete and broom finished concrete cost is amazing. Stamped Concrete runs from $20.00 per square foot to $26.00 per square foot. So you can get almost 2 times more broom finished concrete than stamped concrete.


In the end, it's still concrete and like all concrete guys say! There are only 2 truths in concrete are, it will get hard and it will crack.
