When you spend the time and effort to make your house look good on the outside; you don’t want something like a dull, gray patio to take away from its beauty. Making concrete complement your home is easy.
First, clean the concrete thoroughly. You can use specialized concrete cleaners or a pressure washer to remove any trace of dirt, mold, and mildew.
Next, apply a coat of concrete stain. This stain can be a solid color or translucent. I personally like the translucent style, so any features of the concrete can still show through.
Once the stain is dry, add a little pizzazz by applying a coat of high-gloss masonry sealer. Not only will it look great, but you get the added benefit of the stain and sealer protecting the concrete.
