Modern Methods for Classic Concrete!

This revision of Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Home Masonry updates much of what made the original book a best-seller, but also answers the latest building trends by featuring exciting new information and projects . In addition to the tried and true project information on building with concrete, brick and block, the book features all new, state-of-the-art information on decorative concrete finishes, including acid coloring, stamping, and using cementitious paints. Another new section shows easy methods for casting concrete in forms to create countertops, garden benches, and other accessories. Also included are new projects for building retaining walls with tumbled concrete block, facing concrete slabs and steps with natural stone and ceramic tiles, and creating outdoor rock gardens.
