A key result of any restoration project is a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the property once all work is completed. Concrete patches do not closely match existing concrete consistently, so an architectural coating must be part of any restoration plan to avoid the blotchy look after a concrete repair project.
Architectural Coatings consist of more than "paint". Coatings with a vast array of different physical properties are available because of the continually improving technology. Coatings that are waterproof, water resistant, breathable, elastomeric, thin build, high build and/or various combinations of these properties have been developed and field tested.
Concrete coating technology has changed incredibly over the last two decades, as engineers have demanded more options in coatings. Manufacturers have responded by developing several types of concrete coatings to meet the engineers' demands.

Painting is a bad word in Historic Restoration. However, several architectural coatings using mineral based technology for historic work have been accepted by curators and conservators on historic register projects. The technology is not driven by chemical advances, but advances in taking colored rock minerals and grinding them into fine powders to provide the range of colors needed at a reasonable cost in the coatings and stains have been accepted. These materials are designed to penetrate and bond with the existing substrate while having a rock like toughness. The life of these coatings can be four times than of a good grade exterior paint have been accepted.
