Basement floor patina


I'm remodeling my basement and am hoping to retain the natural patina of the cement, unfortunately the floor has sloping to drain flood water. The house has never had any issues with flooding in it's 100+ years so I'm hoping to find a way to level without losing it's natural patina. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Basement floor patina

Not reasonable to think that can be accomplished.

Rember that over the past 100 years materials have changed as to how they are processed ( made )  You could add dye to new concrete and maybe come some where close but even with todays standards cement will have a color change form batch to batch. Plus all the other things taht affect the color of concrete like temp , sun , hydrating time & a few others.
