Staining concrete
We had a section of our sidewalk replaced last summer, and it is so much whiter than the existing concrete and driveway. Is there some sort of product I could appy to stain the "white" concrete and match it to the existing concrete?
Thanks! Chris

the only thing i can think is to use an oil based stain that is tinted towards the color of the older concrete. i'm not sure how close that would turn out though.

last year i used some latex solid stain to color some concrete post saddles and it has held up wonderfully but it's not a walking/driving surface.

tough question, OP. hope u find the perfect solution.

H&C makes stains specifically for masonry surfaces, including walking surfaces, they have about 100 color choices and are fairly easy to apply, clean the surface, etch the surface and apply your stain, you can find H&C Concrete Stains at Sherwin Williams
