Who doesn’t like fun in the sun? Daylight Saving time is here and we magically get more sunlight in our day by moving the clocks ahead one hour. Sunday, March 10, marks the day when we’ll have more time to enjoy outdoor activities with family and friends. This also means that it’s time to be sure your patio or pool deck is ready for spring and summertime relaxing and entertaining.

This year, February 18 is Presidents’ Day and if you’re planning to celebrate by relaxing at home, you can warm up your long weekend with a new concrete fireplace from Concrete Craft® . If your outdated fireplace is making your family room or living room less than inviting, vertical concrete resurfacing can restore your fireplace to a thing of beauty with an authentic-looking, faux stone façade like Castle Rock, carved limestone, Mountain Dry Stack, sandstone, English cobblestone and more. In fact, Concrete Craft co-founder Dan Lightner declares, “If you’ve seen a piece of rock out there, we can duplicate it.”

With cold weather driving everyone indoors, a house can suddenly seem smaller with more people and more activities jockeying for space. The solution may be right under your nose … turn the basement into a game or rec room and create a fun zone where exuberance and noise are welcome.

Home design is never static, and each year brings new innovations and trends to help homeowners find exactly the look and feel they desire in their homes. The style options for floor coverings fill home improvement stores, masonry yards, and design centers with myriad choices that both delight and confuse shoppers.

With New Year’s right around the corner, have you made your resolutions yet? Concrete Craft® would like to help you make a New Year’s Resolution that is unbreakable--and literally set in concrete. That way you’ll rise above the 80% of people who don’t stick to their resolutions for various reasons.

The holiday season has arrived, and thoughts turn to gift giving. Some people on your list are easy to buy for, while others keep you searching the malls and online stores for that “perfect something” that will delight a favorite person. With celebrations for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice and New Year’s, there are lots of opportunities to say “you’re special” or “I love you” with a well-chosen gift.

With the holidays coming, there’s certainly a lot to worry about. The endless shopping, cooking and baking, decorating, cleaning, parties, overnight guests, kids home on school break, and visits from invited friends and relatives who bring their uninvited pets. With all that going on, there are bound to be problems!

If you’re looking ahead to fall entertaining, it’s time to get your outdoor spaces ready for enjoying crisp, cool evenings in complete comfort. An easy-care decorative concrete patio from Concrete Craft® will make you the “hostess with the mostess,” and you’ll spend less time getting ready and more time having fun. A concrete overlay can resurface even a well-worn patio, covering up years of use and weather abuse, and have you sitting pretty for your first fall get-together with a stainedstampedor hand-carvedand custom-colored decorative concrete patio. Our craftsmen can match existing architecture or hardscapes, as in the image above, or you can make a completely different style statement.

Are you ready for the last big summertime bash … the three-day Labor Day weekend? It’s a time to celebrate and honor American workers, like you, who work hard supporting their families, contributing to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our great country.

In most households, back to school is a mixture of excitement and anxiety. It’s sort of the equivalent of starting a new job for adults, but at kid level. The anticipation of a new adventure and the fear of the unknown collide, making back to school a major annual event for everyone.
