To prolong the life of your concrete driveway, you should seal it with either a penetrating silane/siloxane based sealer or a more decorative topical coating which can be either a gloss or a satin finish. You also have the option of adding color to the sealer or the preferred method of staining the concrete first using concrete dyes followed by a sealer.

There is also a useful blog article on this subject.

Ideas please. Stamped concrete, stained concrete or brick pavers? We currently have a driveway that is just plain concrete. No cracks or damage. Cons & pro tips, please?? TIA It's not very long. Maybe 40 ft.
