  • The product selection and application process for patching minor divots, chips and/or shrinkage cracks.
  • The product selection and application process for repairing large static cracks and/or in-filling saw cuts.
  • The product selection and application process for building ramps.
  • The product selection and application process for coving.
  • The product selection and application process for transitions.


Practical Assessment Criteria
