This is a patio that we just finished in Fridley, MN. It was just like any other concrete patio poured in the 60's or 70's. It had plenty of erosion from all the rain and snow it had seen. It wasn't cracked at all but it had a few holes and chips in it. We repaired all the chips and ground it with aggressive diamonds to smooth out the surface. Once the surface was prepped to our liking, we applied a base color of concrete stain followed by the application of 2 different enhancer stain colors. The surface was then protected with a Urethane coating with a grit additive to make it less slippery. Along with their new deck they had built around the same time, This patio completely transformed their backyard. They couldn't wait to get their patio furniture on it and have their first barbecue.
