Concrete porch

stayn2busySeptember 13, 2009

We are building our in the country and decided to have concrete porches (3 sides of the house). They are finished smooth and will be slick when wet. I plan to have the concrete etched in a pattern. I would love to see some pictures if anyone has done this to their concrete porch.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

unless you are painting them or installing a tile flooring later, i would not do them slick finish like a garage floor, leave them brushed. as you said they WILL be slippery! at the very least look into embedding some type of antiskid compound into the finish.

i need to repaint my garage floor right now, you will bust your butt in there when the floor is wet.
