I want to cover a plain concrete front porch with some type of natural, manmade, or masonry tile. Something that will not be too slick when wet is desired. Any suggestions about type?

I just saw a booklet on painting a faux finsh
to look like tile by dipping a square piece
of upholstery foam into paint colors swirled
together in a pizza box. It looked nice and
easy. The booklet was put out by Benjamin
Moore paints and also told how to seal it.
Maybe you can locate the booklet at a Benjamin Moore dealer.

There are large reddish paving tiles made
in Mexico that look great. Paramount has
concrete porches on most of the older
buildings, and last year they had them all
covered with these tiles. It's a real
improvement. There are even bullnose tiles
available with ridges on the top surface
near the nose edge for use on stairs. Bob
used tiles from J. R. Ceramica in Tecate,
Mexico, on a job he did in Malibu about ten
years ago.
