Can You Believe It’s NOT Wood?
Using DCI Concrete Overlay, Liquid Colored Antique Concrete Stain and Pigment to a Simulate Wood Finish
Creating a faux wood grain concrete finish for floors and countertops is becoming more and more popular with our customers. While this technique does take some skill to pull off, it can be done with the right products, tools and how to info! Bert Hernandez with Red Rock Concrete recently completed a floor remodeling project in an older home. Updating floors and countertops really adds value to a home, especially if the new surfaces are easy to clean, maintain and look great!
Here’s Bert’s wood grain concrete floors project and the products he used to make it happen!

Smooth Gray Concrete Overlay was applied over the prepared driveway, textured with a broom and taped off using painter’s tape to mimic wood planks.
The driveway was finally sealed with two coats of Sprayable Satin Finish Sealer for color depth and durability. Satin finish sealers are recommended for driveways to reduce the possibility of slip hazards when wet.
