Stained concrete in screened-in porch?

17 years ago

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has successfully used stained concrete in a screened-in porch? If so, do you like the way it looks? Feels under the feet? Also, are there moisture issues to be aware of? For example, did you need a special sealant that was appropriate for indoor/outdoor surfaces?

We are planning to add a screened-in porch in our small renovation. Although it will have only 2 exposed sides, there isn't much of a roof overhang so I imagine the floor will see a fair share of rain. We're considering just staining the concrete in order to save money on flooring material. Otherwise, I'd have a painted wood floor like the kind you see in New England front porches.

Any photos of stained concrete floors that you're pleased with would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for any advice,
