Staining Old Concrete
I have old concrete sidewalk and steps leading up to our front door. They are both in really good shape, just not the best to look at. Is there a good stain that I could use on them that would give them a little color and more appeal?

Check with your local brick yard. There are stains available specifically intended for concrete. Be sure to get a good sealer when you do this. The stains are fairly durable but will last far longer if you keep it sealed.

Just make sure that you powerwash the concrete first. Do not acid wash - just use pressurized water - a mild detergent and a brush. Rinse Clean
