I was wondering if anyone has tried using Behr Granite Grip concrete coating. Does it really make concrete look like pebbles? How do I figure how much I need? Is it hard to apply? Would it survive Michigan winters? How do you go about applying it? I love the whole idea and would love to put it on our back sidewalk but I just don't know enough about it.

    You might want to check out the Customer Reviews for Granite Grip on the Home Depot website and other websites. Some reviews are complimentary, but others not so much. Apparently this product is somewhat difficult to apply, as the little beads of color it contains have to be literally pressed out flat using a short nap adhesive roller. There is no color in the resin itself, so two coats is necessary to make it opaque and give the necessary protective thickness. Michigan winters with lots of cold, ice and snow and then spring melt and temperature changes will probably not be kind to this product if you are planning to use it on an outside sidewalk that more than likely will be shoveled, plowed or cleared with a snow blower or is covered in ice and freezes and thaws. It is sitting on top of the concrete like a paint so moisture will be able to get under the product and do some not so good things. Not saying that the product can't be good--but where you choose to use it will make all the difference in whether it's successful or it fails.
