You will see several types of concrete brooms available in the market, and they all come with unique widths and specifications. This is because they all offer different styles of levels and textures.
The block which holds the bristles of the broom is typically made of wood, aluminum, or plastic. The plastic ones are most popular because they do not succumb to rust or warp, making them last much longer.
The concrete broom’s bristles are often made of nylon, polypropylene, and horsehair, so you should find them stiffer and in different sizes. This can help get a lot of unique textures compared to the other types of brooms. If you are working with more extreme textures, the wire combs are better to use.
Alternatively, there are also brooms without handles or those that are attached to a bull float. This positions the broom perfectly, so the finish is done by the sides of the bristles instead of the tips, providing a more uniform appearance.
Brooms without handles are exceptional when there are very wide pours, and it gets difficult to push the broom all the way across because the bull float handle gets too heavy.
Then you will not risk pushing the broom too deep into the concrete because the float will support the handle’s weight instead of the broom doing all the heavy lifting.
