I'd like to improve the appearnace of a concrete porch on the back of my house. I could cover it with all-weather carpet but prefer not to carpet it. I could paint it but then I'd probably have to repaint the traffic area each year. What other choices are there?

thanks,

glenn

Just an idea....

How about building a wood deck above the porch? Depending on how things are situated, it can sure improve the looks.

Other options would include installing brick pavers, stone pavers, quarry tile, or cracked tile depending on how much vertical space you have to work with.
