My wife and I just came back from Arizona, where we found that some of the permanent trailers in the park had some type of covering on their carport pad that I am interested in putting at the house. It appeared to be a white epoxy, but was nice and shiny, but slippery when it got wet. I was wondering if this can be put on by myself, or do I need to hire a contractor. If you have any ideas on this I would like to hear about it.

I don't know if this is the product you're looking for but you might check it out. I'm thinking of using it to resurface our back porch. Happy Trails!!

Liquid Rubber roof coating perhaps?
Hoverbug, the coating he referenceed, he said was "slippery when wet", you don't really want a slippery coating on your porch do you?

We have a home in Arizona and in our community it is very popular to coat the concrete with paint. Some of the neighbors hire contractors, some did it themselves. Some driveways and patios look like they are painted with a stencil design on top, while others look like flagstone or tile. Some are slippery when wet, while others have non-skid properties. I know that the white driveways are very reflective and bright in the AZ sun. It can cast lots of heat to the surrounding areas.

We're not in Arizona right now, but I did a google search on concrete coatings and found a number of companies and some sites that offered how-to instructions. I did read that some paints don't work well with rubber tires on cars, golf carts, and bikes. Sounds like a project one could do themselves with a little research.
