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 If your outdated fireplace is making your family room or living room less than inviting, vertical concrete resurfacing can restore your fireplace to a thing of beauty with an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

This Valentine’s Day, we’d like you to add the benefits of decorative concrete to your love list that includes family, friends, pets, movies, music, and big heart boxes of chocolates. While love of decorative concrete may not seem to fit, once you realize how much there is to love about decorative concrete to enhance your home, you just might change your mind!

The dead of winter is probably not the best time to evaluate your home’s curb appeal. Rain-drenched plants, brown lawns and frozen gardens are not the best frame for your home. But it does give you a good hard look at the home itself. Maybe it’s time for a facelift to strip away some years and out-of-date styling from your home.

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.

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.
