Here is our latest project.. Two front porch replacements. The existing porches were just standard concrete with one pre-cast step down to a sidewalk. The rise on the single step was eight or nine inches, which was very hard to use for the homeowners being senior citizen's. So they wanted the front porches replaced and they wanted 2 steps with smaller rises.
On the first porch we tore out the existing concrete and replaced the concrete with standard concrete, black release and stamped the porch with a slate pattern and brick border
We also stained the concrete with a acid stain, we did the brick border in a red color. On the slate pattern we tried to mimic the look of a grey slate. We used beige, green, grey and blue colors

We also added a guard rail from Timber Tech - Radiance Rail in the color Sandridge.

The Radiance rail is our favorite railing on the market

On the second porch the homeowner wanted the same thing just in a more budget approach. Their porch also had problems with the brick wall under the porch cracking and chipping off. So we tore out the cement porch and the brick wall under the slab and poured concrete for the wall under the cement porch

The stamp is random stone and it has the same brick border. The color is a dark sandstone with a dark brown release

The guard rail on this porch is Monarch Bermuda in the earth tone color
Thank You for checking out our blog.
Next we will be in Oakland Township MI on beautiful Twin Lakes Golf course building a composite deck. We are excited this will be the with the new Fiberon Horizon Tropics. Which it looks very similar as Ipe and has a 10 year fade and stain warranty!
