Say goodbye to grey concrete

colored walk Say goodbye to grey concreteNothing can be more boring than grey concrete.
Are you planning for a new landscape walk, patio or any other new concrete? Try colorizing it.

Concrete can be dyed a variety of tones from terracotta to brown, black and even blue. Dying is best done during the mixing of the concrete. It can be ordered dyed or you can mix dyed concrete in small batches using Quickcrete® in a wheelbarrow. Concrete dyes are available at many hardware stores.

Commercial concrete companies also offer many dyes and specialized finishes that makes the concrete resemble slate, flagstone or even brick. These are best applied by a professional concrete finisher.

Existing concrete can also be dyed to create different effects.
