New product provides natural, stone-like finish to concrete surfaces.
GraniteFX Decorative Concrete Coating is a new product offering from Seal-Krete that offers DIYers a natural, stone-like finish for a multitude of concrete surfaces including walkways, patios, porches and pool decks. GraniteFX Decorative Concrete Coating comes in a water-based, ready-to-use brush and roll formula. The textured base coat is first applied and needs two to six hours to dry. Then a clear sealer with crushed stone is applied. Multiple coats will increase the density of stone appearance and clean up requires only soap and water. GraniteFX comes in four natural-looking colors: Gulf Shore is a light stone similar to a sandy beach; Keystone is a darker, sophisticated gray; Monterrey is a light beige with a hint of coral; and Sedona is a darker terra-cotta like a warm sunset. Each GraniteFX kit covers up to 150 square feet, retails for about $88.00 and is available at select Home Depot stores.
