Paint, stain, and stamping are options for dressing up a concrete slab.
Concrete is one of the most popular and common materials used for patios. There are many finishes and colors available to enhance concrete. Most can be found at home improvement centers and are easy to use.
Enhancements to concrete fall into two general categories: those that can be added to an existing slab, and those that must be added at the time of pouring. In general, enhancements made at the time of pouring will last longer and look better over time.
