New product: concrete paint

Rust-Oleum has a new resurfacing product designed to revive aging decks and concrete surfaces.

The product, Deck and Concrete Restore, is 10 times as thick as regular paint or stain. It's meant for surfaces that are structurally sound but unattractive.

The water-based coating is said to lock down splinters, fill cracks and hide other imperfections to create a more attractive, slip-resistant surface. It also protects against moisture and sun damage.

The product is available at Lowe's and Home Depot. The suggested retail price is $49.97 for a gallon.
