Thread: Concrete Decking

    Concrete Decking

    Last year we had our pool finished and concrete deck poured. We chose a colored concrete...Omaha Tan. After the concrete cured it was not the color I picked...well, it was, it was just way lighter! When the concrete is wet..that's the color I wanted...when it's looks like regualr concrete! I tried sealing it hoping it would make it darker...just made it slick!
    So my question is....has anybody "acid washed/stained" their concrete? I'm looking at the choices out there and I think that's the route I would like to take but would like to get some feed back on the outcome of this choice. Does anyone have pictures of their concrete with an acid wash/stain? I'd like to go for a natural rock look...colors of tan and gray.
    Also, there are stains on the concrete from the pool cover. I have tried power washing and it has only made a bigger mess...any suggestions on cleaning products out there?

    Thanks for any input!!!

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing, but I'm too chicken to do it.
