If you’re getting tired of how your concrete looks, you might consider upgrading it. After all, your outdoor concrete leaves a lasting impression on other people. If you’re planning to put your home on the market, a tired-looking concrete will make it less appealing and you’ll have a hard time looking for potential buyers.

At Rockhampton Concreters, we have practical solutions to improve your outdoor concrete. Whether it’s your driveway or patio, we can do it for you!

If you think replacing your entire concrete driveway is the solution, think again! Here are more practical and less expensive ways to improve your outdoor concrete:

1. Pave Your Driveway or Patio

To make your outdoor concrete look more appealing and modern, you can add paves. Pavers are inexpensive and practical instead of replacing the entire driveway. At Rockhampton Concreters, we offer a large selection of designs and patterns that comes in different sizes to enhance your outdoor concrete.

A paved driveway is more durable and lasts longer than a regular concrete driveway.

2. Refinish Concrete Surface

At Rockhampton Concreters, we can refinish your concrete by scoring, staining, or additional paving. These treatments are used for cured concrete.

A friendly reminder when sealing or staining outdoor spaces, you need to maintain a slip-resistance surface. That being said, most indoor concrete finishes are not suitable for outdoors. Our experts will help and guide you in choosing a compatible finish for your outdoor concrete.

3. Repair Broken or Chipped Pavers

Broken or chipped concrete pavers don’t look good and can lessen your curb’s appeal. If you notice damaged concrete pavers, it’s better to repair them right away. Repairing broken pavers is easy because you just have to replace the broken area with new pavers.

4. Paint Your Concrete

If you’re tired of your dull concrete, you can add some colours to it. Painting your concrete is one of the most simple yet effective ways to improve your curb’s appeal. It’s important though to choose colours that will add visual effect and aesthetic appeal to your home.

Creating some dimensions with layers will make your concrete look better. At Rockhampton Concreters, our experts can offer professional advice and solutions to make your concrete complement your home.

5. Power Wash Your Outdoor Concrete

Your outdoor space is one of the most used areas in your home. Your driveway or patio is exposed to dirt, dust and harmful elements every day.

Over the years, your concrete must have accumulated dirt and grime. Before you decide to replace your entire concrete driveway or patio, consider having it power washed to remove the dirt. This can instantly revive your old and dirty looking concrete.


Reviving your old concrete is simple when you have the right tools and knowledge. There are a lot of simple ways to improve your outdoor concrete without having to replica the entire concrete flooring.
