Exterior poured concrete

I want to paint over poured concrete on my Bi-level home. It's shaped like brick but is concrete. The current color is gray and I want to do something with it any suggestions? also should I use Sprayer or a Roller?

If you are not experienced with paint sprayers, I would use a roller. Concrete is a funny beast to try to paint. If the right product is not applied correctly, it is sure to fail and become a very high maintenance item. Some concrete needs to be etched with acid for the paint to adhere. How long has the concrete been poured? I like to use concrete stain as compared to porch & deck enamel. Talk to your local paint store, describe your situation, and they can assist you further. And remember, discount stores are not paint stores.
