    I have a brick ranch on a slab foundation with 2 rows of concrete blocks exposed all around the house at the base of the walls. Am trying to decide on an easy, inexpensive way to treat these concrete blocks so it does not look so ugly. I was thinking about concrete floor paint, like they use in garage floors. They come in different colors, maybe I could find one that the wife likes!

    Anyone ever tried this? Any thouhgts?

    Great forum !

    If you use a concrete stain it won't ever peel...just fade. I'd really hesitate to paint concrete outside.
