Warmer spring weather means it’s time to liven up living
spaces with home improvements you’ve dreamed about all winter, including updating
your exterior entryway,
the entryway that sets the tone for your home. If your front doorway has a tired, unkempt
look from old-fashioned colors and materials, Concrete Craft® can help you
achieve an inviting entrance with versatile, beautiful decorative concrete to
transform concrete walkways, porches, steps, and driveways. Here are six easy
ways to spruce up your home just in time for spring.
If your driveway is also your entryway, a fabulous facelift is
easy with stained
concrete. From the street to the front door, vibrant color that complements
siding, brickwork, and architectural elements will create an upscale, designer
look to showcase your home. The economy of stained concrete lets you transform
large areas like driveways,
walkways, and porches without breaking the bank. Even erase mismatched
“patchwork concrete” from multiple pours or added extensions with stained
concrete that creates one continuous color on all your concrete. Our MasterPro StainTM
concrete stains are resistant to UV damage so colors won’t fade and the sealed
finish resists chips, cracks, and peeling.
Revive worn finishes
Plain or patterned concrete that has lost its finish or shine
can quickly be revived with RenewKoat by Concrete CraftTM.
There’s no need for replacement or complete resurfacing to bring distressed
concrete back to life. In a matter of days, RenewKoat can restore faded
concrete walkways and entryways to look brand-new. A tough cementitious overlay
that rolls on like paint, RenewKoat provides a natural concrete appearance, preserving
the original design. With 10 color options, you can dramatically change things up
if you desire. Better than new, the industry-tough
finish ensures a fabulous entryway that can endure years of use in all kinds of
weather without deteriorating.
Embrace the beauty of stone
Grouted stone and stone tiles are coveted outdoor looks, but
real stone can be very expensive. A dull, gray concrete porch can be
transformed into an elegant “welcome” with a resurfaced, stamped concrete decorative
overlay, stamped with an authentic looking faux stone design. Using real stone
molds and hand-applied stain colors, Concrete Craft creates finishes such as
flagstone, cobblestone, and Ashlar slate. This stamped tile
design is custom-colored to coordinate with the stonework on the house siding
and pillars, giving a renewed presence to the entryway that now feels like more
like an inviting outdoor room.
Enjoy the homey touch of wood
Wood flooring and weather don’t always mix, but with
decorative concrete faux wood finishes, you can have durable wood plank designs
for any exterior entryway. Create a coastal or beach vibe with light color wood
tones, a traditional “wood deck” for a cozy porch, or reclaimed wood texture for
an earthy, rustic farmhouse feel. You can have an authentic
looking faux wood entryway or wrap-around porch with no muss, no fuss! A resurfaced
concrete overlay applies directly to your
existing concrete porch and can be stamped, imprinted or stenciled with the
wood pattern of your choice and custom stained to your perfect color. And
you’ll never be plagued with the customary wood problems like warping or
splintering with sealed decorative concrete faux wood surfaces.
Make a bold statement
If you dream of an entryway unlike any other, decorative
concrete can get you there. The versatility of design with stained, stamped,
and resurfaced concrete provides unlimited potential for any design scheme you can
devise. Stencils can be used to transfer unique patterns to concrete surfaces
and brilliant concrete stains create indelible masterpieces that can stand up
to any foot traffic. Colorful borders, logos, and even a stenciled rug can turn
your entryway into your own personal statement.
Sophisticated neutral territory
Neutral palettes are a great choice for a serene,
sophisticated entryway. A monochromatic theme with a range of light to dark
tones invites decorative embellishments as your mood or the seasons change.
This walkway, steps, and entryway are unified with a stunning hand-cut, large
flagstone pattern, custom-colored to complement the brick siding. A concrete
overlay repairs any surface damage like chips, cracks or discoloration,
creating a fresh, even surface for the new design. Enjoy the popular look of
grouted stone without the inherent problems of grout lines such as crumbling,
lifting stones, and intruding weeds and grass.

Let this be the spring your home is the showstopper on the
