Concrete stains can be used and are available in any color. They
look just like a paint but are recommended for areas that will
be walked on or driven on.
Clear Coats/ Sealers
These products help preserve the floor by creating a barrier
from UV rays and tire marks.
Acrylic latex stains and paints can be used on your garage
floor, but a clear coat is recommended to protect against tire
marks and leaks from the vehicles.
Epoxy paints are used on garage floors but not on exterior
surfaces and they do not need a clear coat for the extra
protection. Any color of your choice can be used. Decorating
flakes can be used to offer a less slippery surface, and they
give an interesting design to your floor. They are scattered on
the floor much like sowing grass seed and must be applied while
the paint is still wet.
Anti-Skid Paint Additives
This material is not sand, but a lightweight material that is
added directly to the paint. It offers a slight texture which
provides a grip effect and is used for steps, garage floors,
pool decks, driving and walkways.
Stains and wood preservatives can be used to provide color and
protection to these surfaces.
Concrete Driveways and Sidewalks
Just as with pavers, a variety colors can be used, but to keep
the natural look of the concrete, the area can be washed and a
sealed to match the original color. There are sealers that are
actually colored. This is very useful in areas where oil spills,
rust, and other chemicals and stains have occurred.
