Step 2: Download textures from cgtextures.com


Use the cgtextures.com's Search tool (at the top left) to search the texture you need. I have downloaded 3 images from the site.

http://www.cgtextures.com/texview.php?id=49965
Texture Name: ConcreteMasked0006 (Texture: #49965)

Note: This texture contains alpha channel in png format. The alpha channel is useful for us to put this texture and 'blended' with the concrete 02 shader (Shaders > Paving folder in the Catalog). Those area in alpha channel will be transparent, so it makes the concrete 02 shader visible.Those area are not in alpha channel, so it will just show the 'damaged portion'.
