Decorate your drab outdoor concrete with Jewel Stone [VIDEO]

Many homes are built with concrete patios and walkways because it’s sturdy and durable. However, they flake and deteriorate over time, leaving an eyesore for the homeowner and a major renovation to fix it. Dolores Ursini, vice-president of DuROCK Alfacing International Ltd., tells us about a product designed to restore concrete to its original beauty: Jewel Stone.

Ursini describes Jewel Stone as an acrylic-modified, cement-based coating that can be used to restore and beautify old deteriorating concrete. “It’s ideal for walkways, terraces, patios, pool areas, or any industrial or recreational flooring that requires the look and performance of stone,” she says.

DuROCK’s product boasts many benefits. Ursini says Jewel Stone blends polymer resins with cement, sand and other additives to improve performance, wear resistance and aesthetic qualities. “It adheres well to existing concrete and resists damage from UV exposure, freeze-thaw conditions and abrasion,” she says of the product that can be over top concrete, masonry, wood, plaster or drywall.

It’s a versatile product

Jewel Stone can be coloured, textured and patterned to replicate a wide variety of finishes, including slate, flagstone, tile or wood plank. Plus, it comes in a combination of colours that will satisfy any homeowner’s individual taste and vision. Have fun when you decorate your home’s exterior!
