Cement masons prepare and repair concrete, including pouring and finishing slabs, steps, wall tops, curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and paving. They work with a variety of materials including terrazzo, magnasite, epoxy, polymer and other plastic materials for topping repair and injection.
Most of the work requires substantial bending and heavy lifting and is performed outdoors. Job sites vary and workers may need to work far from home. There may be periods of unemployment.
