Paint/Stain/Epoxy to blend concrete patio color?

Over the decades, our concrete patio has been expanded twice (so 3 different concrete pours). We'd like to make the concrete look all the same. We want to keep a concrete color (nothing fancy), but a consistent look. I've read of some epoxies that claim to not yellow (so can be used outside, if that's appropriate), but wasn't sure what type of surface (paint, stain, or epoxy) would best be used to create a "unified" concrete look.

Welcome to the forums!

You could use a solid color concrete stain. If the 'texture' of the slabs is the same that will make them look uniform but different concrete finishes will alter the look of the stain slightly.

mark's right - either transparent/opaque ' stain ' will appear differently because of the ' finish ' texture of the individual pieces of conc.

to really achieve what you want, you'll need to overlay all of them,,, this COULD be diy work depending on your ability - concretelocator.com, sherwin-williams, or concretenetwork.com would be a good place to start [ no $ interest ]
