If you have a concrete patio, or even a sidewalk outside of your home, you probably have noticed a lot of stains or mold on it from the weather and from daily dirt and dust that accumulates on it. These stains can get pretty unsightly and can make your home look unkempt. To get your patio clean and free of stains, follow the instructions below.
Here's What You'll Need:
To give your patio an updated look, you can paint the concrete using concrete paint. The paint will give your patio a whole new look. You can give it texture depending on the concrete paint and method you use to apply it, or paint it using a bright color (or several bright colors) for something a little different.
If, however, your patio is in pretty poor shape, as in it's cracked or crumbling, you may want to think about having your patio replaced. Concrete can be customized with a stamping method so it can mimic stone or even wood. You can also have your concrete stained with any color to give it a unique look. Contact a concrete contractor in your area like Hofmann Concrete Construction LLC if you are thinking of having your concrete patio replaced.Share

I own a small office building, and recently, I was looking for ways to improve the building's exterior. I felt that the whole office was very plain and lacked curb appeal. I want clients and business contacts to be impressed by the building and the grounds before they even step through the door. I knew that one thing I definitely needed to do was replace the crumbling walkway. I called a concrete contractor about fixing the walkway, and was impressed when he told me that I could actually make it look like a brick pathway, using stamped concrete. I decided to go for it, and it made a big difference in the appearance of the outside of the office. I think that more people should be aware of how they can use stamped concrete to improve their business's curb appeal.
