Set Realistic Expectations for Integrally Colored Concrete

When choosing to use colored concrete on a project, there is very often a discrepancy between the owner’s expectations and the reality of the finished job.

Contractors often discuss which is better, integral color or color hardener. Contractors’ creative abilities can really flow once they have mastered the use of both products. This allows them to produce unique, realistic-looking stone, brick or tile and there is absolutely nothing wrong with selecting either or both for decorative concrete work.
