paint or stain a concret porch

I have a concrete porch and walkway - that was painted by someone at some point. The paint has faded and peeled and I would like to either repaint or stain - as I am fixing the house to sell. What should I do - and how should I do it?

Re: paint or stain a concret porch

I have a painted concrete front porch on my 1932 built bungalow, I painted my porch and was not happy with the results because of the visability of the many layers of old paint jobs, even thought the contractor scraped for days......not a smooth finish...was told by a another paint contractor that concrete should never..never be painted!..now I understand...wish there was more on how to remove the many layers of paint..other than sandblasting...now I'm stuck with a ugly concrete porch.

Good luck!
