3 WAYS TO A NICER FRONT ENTRYWAY IN NEW ORLEANS

If you’re looking to update your New Orleans home, the front entryway is a great place to start. This is the area most people see, and provides the first impression to your guests.

Start With A Walkway

A concrete front walkway can not only add beauty to your home, it can also protect your front lawn from foot traffic and provide better grip in wet weather. If you have an existing walkway that looks like it’s seen better days, repair and restoration options are available as well. Steps are also a good consideration, making your home look more sophisticated.

Walkways and steps can be created with unique patterns, colours and shapes. With concrete stamping and overlays, there are endless options.

Add Lighting

Lighting is important, especially if you have steps. You don’t want your guests to be tripping in the dark, or stepping off the walkway onto your lawn. Decent lighting may also minimize the risk of break-ins and creates a pleasant mood, making the front of your house look great long after the sun goes down.

Add A Garden

You can enhance the colour of your front entryway very easily by adding flowers. A garden can become a great hobby as well. If you don’t want to install a garden, consider planting flowers along the side of your walkway.

Your New Orleans home should be something you’re proud of. Your local concrete contractor or landscaper will be able to tell you your best options for installing a beautiful new entryway, or the restoration of your existing one.

Large Scale Concrete Pool Deck Project, Against All Odds

Concrete Pool Deck New Orleans

Weather conditions in New Orleans, Louisiana makes any outdoor concrete services very challenging. With Louisiana’s high precipitation rate and New Orleans being the third rainiest city in the United States, resurfacing 14,348 square feet of pool deck, bar area and other exterior concrete surfaces in five days is almost next to impossible!

With the storm clouds gathering up, Will Burley of Concrete Coatings, a decorative concrete contractor in New Orleans, LA faced a tough decision of continuing the concrete work to meet the deadline.

Unfortunately, the rain came after they shot the concrete texture resulting to the loss of 8,000, 6,800 and 5,500 square feet of texture coat. This event caused Concrete Coatings’ crew has to work faster and harder than ever.
