December 14, 2021

On-demand concrete training platform for businesses wanting to amplify excellent results and avoid costly mistakes.
My very first polished concrete project, I told the finisher to screed the concrete and leave it because it didn’t matter what the finish was like since I would be grinding it off. I lost so much money on that project – I thought I was going to go out of business. Since then, I have spent over 20 years learning about concrete – from design + specifications, place + finish, polishing, maintenance, repairs…and the ever-evolving products and processes that go alongside – just so I do not make that kind of mistake again.
Our goal is to update and share best concrete practices to help anyone wanting to avoid mistakes that cost valuable time and money. From architects to concrete, polishing, and general contractors to facility management and maintenance, Expert Concrete Training has specific training and content to help you make sound project decisions.
