Is Your Front Entryway Welcoming or Worn Out? The front entryway is more than just a path to your door; it sets the tone for your entire home.

Custom Concrete Options

A custom front entry design offers you numerous benefits. One of the most important is matching the design to any other element of your home or business.

The second is that you can remake that old eyesore and easily increase the style and design of the area.

Front Entry Resurfacing Designs

Concrete front entries do not need to be boring and dull. In the past, there was little else available. Today, that’s not the case at all. Custom front entry designs can resurface that old entryway, giving you any look you want.

For instance, you might have a concrete overlay in St. Louis applied to give your entry the look of brick to match the siding on your home. You might choose the look of natural stone to match your walkways, or you might prefer wood, tile, cobbles, or even a resurfacing concrete walkway to match your home. Here are other options you can choose for your entryway surface.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete is a popular entryway option, adding elegance to any commercial and home exterior. With stamped concrete, patterns and designs can be imprinted into the surface, creating a unique and personalized look. This option can also mimic any appearance and pattern, such as brick or stone, at a lower cost. Stamped concrete enhances curb appeal, improves aesthetics, and is durable, making it less prone to cracks and damage. Applying a sealant ensures it remains weather-resistant and retains its smooth and refined finish, further boosting its durability.

Stained Concrete Entryway

Stained concrete is another popular choice for entryways and sidewalks. The staining concrete process involves applying a chemical solution to the surface that reacts with the concrete to create a unique design. To restore and rejuvenate its appearance, you can coat it with a sealant to prevent discoloration and protect it from wear and tear. Stained concrete is durable and long-lasting, making it a practical option for high-traffic areas like commercial properties. Its enhanced durability and low maintenance requirements make it ideal for busy settings.

Classic Texture

Classic texture concrete finish, also called spray knockdown finish, involves applying a textured overlay to the concrete using tools like a trowel, broom, or concrete sprayer. The texture provides a slip-resistant and heat-resistant feature. Classic texture is also relatively low maintenance and easy to clean. Refurbishing, upgrading, or even renovating surfaces with a classic texture can significantly enhance the safety and functionality of the area. A coating or stain can also be added to further improve its appearance and durability, ensuring it continues to serve well under varying weather conditions.

Custom Scoreline

Custom scorelines are done by cutting decorative grooves into the floor to produce a textured appearance using a brush. Choosing a scoreline creates an aesthetically pleasing entryway

Decorative Concrete Ideas for You

The front entry of your home or business should mirror the rest of the design throughout the building. You might choose to go with a relaxed, “country” theme here or prefer something more elegant and sophisticated, using marbling techniques to achieve a stunning look. Adding columns can also help you achieve the look that you want.

Finding the Right Help

No matter what style or design you hope to achieve for your home or business, you’ll need the help of a skilled concrete contractor. Not just any contractor will do – not all have the right experience with overlay products to create the perfect entry for you. 

When choosing a concrete contractor in St. Louis, take your time and ensure the one you select can create exactly what you want, understanding the specific steps and DIY repairs that might be involved. 

It’s also crucial that they know how to mix and apply resurfacers correctly, handle joints, and prepare surfaces at your site location for a successful application.
