they might be a good candidate for a cementitious overlay,,, suggest cts' cement-all from the masonry section in your orange apron store,,, its white but you can color it w/sher-wms wtr-bas'd pigments as always, proper prep is priceless - this includes acid etching & neutralizing prior to the overlay

The extent of the porch's deterioration is the key element in determining if it's worth trying to "preserve" with any surfacing product. Meaning if it's shot, nothing will help to bring it back to life.

"Remove and replace" is the logical solution for such a scenario.
