Porch Tile?

We are looking at somehow refinishing our front, concrete porch. Is there
such a thing as a tile or other product that can be laid over existing
concrete?

Concrete is a good base for tile. Since this will be exposed to the weather,
don't get a highly glazed tile that will be slippery when wet.

:You might also consider natural stone, such as precut (not split) slate,
using thinset portland cement to attach them to the steps. Make sure to
clean the concrete with brush and detergent, then etch with diluted muriatic
acid . This will assure a fast bond between tile or stone, and the
concrete. Slate and certain other stones and tiles provide a secure, rough
surface in the winter..
