    First you need to know why it cracked. If it's a structural issue, what you fix will crack again. If it's ok and you want to make it pop, caulk the crack and try putting tile on it.

    Hi Mar,

    As Shore grandmom said, you first have to address why it's cracked and repair or possibly replace. :( To make it pop, you could stencil a design on the porch. It doesn't have to be the whole area, it could be done like a painted "rug". If your porch is big enough add some bright colored chairs with pillows and some flower pots with pretty flowers. If you have a railing, you can also buy hanging plastic flower boxes that look gorgeous when filled with colored flowers. Wishing you the best!
