Stained Concrete

Staining concrete is one of the most popular applications for transforming concrete slabs. Often referred to as colored concrete, homeowners, designers and builders are drawn to stained concrete because of the unique outcome that can be achieved combining colors, application techniques, etc., on cement flooring and other substrates.

Acid Stain is not a paint or coating agent, rather, it's a coloring process involving a chemical reaction on a cementitious material. Acid Stains give concrete a mottled, variegated, marble-like look. Never expect Acid Stain to be uniform or have an even tone, there will be different reactions from slab to slab, and even on the same job there may be different coloration patterns. Variations of colors and mottling are to be expected and enjoyed. It is the unique random coloration of the stain that gives an Acid Stained floor it’s charm.

Stained concrete is a very durable product if properly protected with sealer or wax, and it can be applied to both interiors and exteriors. In addition to the beauty, ease of maintenance and the benefit of a dust free surface, Stained Concrete is also a Flood-Resistant surface. This means that if your home suffers water damage, all you need do is clean the mess and apply a new coat of wax and the floor is looking good again. Acid Stain can be done on existing concrete if it is in good shape. If the concrete is deteriorated, a Micro-Finish will provide a new surface that will rival steel power-troweled concrete or use one of troweled down overlays to provide a new textured ready for staining.

What acid stains don't offer is a broad color selection. You'll mostly find them in a limited array of subtle earth tones, such as tans, browns, terra cottas, and soft blue-greens. We also offer concrete dyes to help expand the color palette and give a more exact color that is not dependent on a reaction from the concrete.
