Can a concrete porch be resurfaced?

If your concrete front porch has minor damage but is still in good condition, it's a good time to think about getting it resurfaced with a cement-based overlay. Your resurfaced concrete patio can be stamped, stained, or stenciled and have color added. The days of a plain concrete slab and concrete steps are behind us, let's get creative!

Concrete Stamping

I've seen stamped concrete before that looks like brick but this was the first time I've seen it stamped to look like wood planks and I love it. This is from The Valvano Homestead. If you have a concrete front porch but like the look of wood, this is a great choice that's also durable. And it has the warm feel of a natural element.

Textured Concrete

You might be asking what is the difference between stamped and textured concrete. Textured concrete is less uniform. The lines are drawn by hand or with a concrete saw.

Stained Concrete

Concrete staining is a popular choice and is available in a variety of colors.

Alieta from Alieta's Treasure Hunting used a Sealer called Pearl Gray to get a stained concrete look. H & C concrete sealer is exact product. Concrete sealer is available in different colors to suit your house style. I love the way it looks in contrast to the bright color of the front door.

Concrete Engraving

Concrete engraving is where patterns are made by carving into the existing concrete rather than applying on top. It's durable and is said to outlast even concrete stamping.

Painted Concrete

This is probably the easiest technique to do, can be done for a reasonable price and has a dramatic effect.
