No matter the type of form or forming system used, the most important factor to achieving good results is how the forms are installed. Forming is often overlooked in concrete construction, but using the right forming system and having it professionally installed can have a significant impact on the concrete's strength and appearance. Proper form installation will result in a uniform and smooth surface, with clean edges and few surface defects.
