Covering Ground Blog

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.

As you can see, you’re in great company … everyone loves a good picture! At Concrete Craft® , we especially like the quick trip from before to after, demonstrating the incredible way that concrete overlays can transform concrete surfaces into beautiful stained, stamped and resurfaced realistic stone finishes.

Here are six before-and-after decorative concrete projects that completely transformed spaces for homeowners across the country. And your local Concrete Craft can do the same for you!


Just as it seems perverse to have a cold in summer when days are balmy and warm, having allergies in winter when the world is encased in cold weather seems wrong. But allergies know no boundaries, they can affect sufferers all year long. Pollen and other classic outdoor warm-weather allergens create havoc half of the year, and winter indoor allergens, including mold, dust mites and pet dander, impact the other half!



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!

Halloween is right around the corner and this means your yard will be invaded by excited little monsters, princesses, pirates, super heroes and the entire cast of Star Wars. Are your walkways and entryway ready to safely engage all these visitors of the galaxies?

In the world of fashion, nothing stays the same. Hairstyles change, fashions evolve season to season, and makeup colors and techniques can completely make over a person with a whole new look. The same is true for your home, and new flooring is one of the easiest ways to completely change the look and feel of a home. With the right flooring, years fall away and your home will be instantly transformed!

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.

If you find yourself checking out new home websites when moving really isn’t an option, maybe you just need to look at your home with new eyes. You once loved it enough to buy it, so a little refresh and some updating could bring back the magic of that new home feeling. For a start, replace a boring gray concrete driveway with a resurfaced decorative concrete overlay in a custom flagstone design and you’ll feel like you’re coming home to a new house.

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.
