Question:

How do I fix an existing concrete patio? My backyard concrete patio looks awful. It looks stained and dirty no matter how much we wash it. Is there something we can do to make it look nicer -- or give it a different look -- besides painting it?

Answer:

I would recommend cleaning with a concrete cleaner and looking into concrete dying -- it is a good alternative to painting -- or you can look in to resurfacing products that bond to old concrete.
