Concrete Stains / Quikrete

Quikrete offers a range of products to transform a drab slab of gray concrete into a pleasing decorative surface. Its concrete and masonry stains include: Etching Stain (shown), which permanently stains concrete in one step, producing a marble-like appearance with warm earth tones and unique shading; Penetrating Concrete Stain is a UV-resistant formula that delivers an opaque appearance with a deep, rich color highlighted by natural variations in the concrete; and Translucent Concrete Stain is a semitransparent, water-based, polymer-bonded stain that brings out the natural variations in concrete and masonry surfaces. All three products are available in a variety of colors, including Terra Cotta, Cola, and Golden Wheat.

Permeable Paving / Porous Pave

Made in the U.S.A., Porous Pave is a highly porous, durable, and flexible paving material. With up to 29 percent porosity and 5,800 per hour per square foot permeability, Porous Pave is a superior solution for stormwater retention. Every 1,000 square feet uses rubber recycled from 300 tires. Porous Pave is slip-resistant and resilient, and does not freeze, heave, crack, or crumble. The pour-in-place material conforms to any landscape design and can be a topcoat to cover old concrete as an alternative to a tear-out. It’s easy and quick for contractors to install: mixing time in a mortar mixer is a minute, and the material cures in 24 hours.
