    Wow!! What an upgrade!

    I am a realtor and the first impression of a home when you walk up to the entrance defines the property. Blotchy, chipped concrete makes the home look older and adds an aura of disrepair. I’ve seen many paint jobs but this stain gave the beat finish I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing I’ve put that in my DIY collection to solve a common problem.

    Just beautiful. I was planning on doing the same to my walkway. I saw a product at Lowe’s that I’m going to use. I just have to pick out a color to go with my brick that is familiar with yours. Question: can you wash this? I tend to get green mold I guess you would call it in the spring or summer. I’d need to wash this without taking off the color.
