It’s that time of year when thoughts turn to Spring cleaning -- getting your house refreshed after the confines of winter. Rather than run from the prospect of Spring cleaning, here are some tips and shortcuts from Concrete Craft® to make house cleaning an easier task so you can get back to more important things.

With Spring a month away, you may be anticipating all the outdoor adventures you’ll have in your own backyard. But then you take a good, hard look at your concrete patio and realize it’s really not ready for entertaining or family fun. As a matter of fact, neither are the driveway and walkways the best welcome to your home. When did this happen? Ugly concrete is killing your fun and your home’s curb appeal and the thought of concrete replacement is mind-boggling! Is it even possible to restore concrete that’s gone bad?

With Concrete Craft®, the answer is yes.


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 If your outdated fireplace is making your family room or living room less than inviting, vertical concrete resurfacing can restore your fireplace to a thing of beauty with an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.”

Every year, major paint companies and the Pantone Color Institute each pick a color of the year that they believe will set the tone for the new year in home decorating. Historically, this has provided a range of colors to choose from, giving homeowners plenty of room for personal preference while keeping pace with trending styles. As we investigate this year’s top design colors, we’ll look at ways these colors can enhance your home, including with decorative concrete from Concrete Craft® for interior and exterior concrete floors.

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.

At Concrete Craft® , we take pride in our proprietary methods and exceptional products to bring only the best in decorative concrete overlays to our customers. Whether you call it resurfacing, concrete overlay or coating, we can transform existing concrete into faux stone decorative designs for driveways, walkways, patios, pool decks, interior floors and vertical surfaces with a resurfaced concrete overlay that can be stamped, stained, and hand-cut and custom-colored for remarkable results!

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!



Concrete Craft® can bring the beauty of real stone into your home with vertical concrete resurfacing to transform walls, shower stalls, fireplace surrounds, quaint nooks and crannies, and other vertical surfaces into realistic-looking rock and stone finishes. Our stamped and hand-carved vertical overlays reflect some of the newest trends in decorative concrete, meeting the demand for the elegance of stone at an affordable price. Our faux stone custom overlays can mimic natural stone in look and texture, but at about half the cost of the real thing. It’s no longer cost-prohibitive to indulge your love of stone, for both inside and outside your home.

Today’s home design trends look to textural contrast, natural beauty and refreshing originality. Stone floors, walls and countertops have moved from the outdoors to stunning indoor displays, creating inviting environments in all areas of the home. Kitchens, especially, can benefit from the enduring elegance of stone to modernize and enhance floors, accent walls, backsplashes and more.

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!
