  • Aesthetics is a significant advantage as there are so many designs and colors to choose from, ensuring that it will match your decor.

Staining Concrete Process

Acid Stains

Acid staining is a great way to spice up your concrete exterior and interior. It causes an intense chemical reaction with any cement materials, which results in dark colors that will last much longer than other methods such as paint or stains.

Acid staining has replaced carpet as the new trend in concrete flooring. It gives your space a varied, marble-like appearance at an affordable price that is not comparable to natural stone minerals or even other types of acids used for decorative purposes alone.

Concrete coloring and staining can cause what was once concrete to look more like a work of art rather than plain concrete.

Acid staining is a durable and fade-resistant method of concrete surface treatment, making it ideal for both interior surfaces such as:

  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks
  • Pool decks
  • Patios

Health Benefit of Acid Staining

Acid stains are water-based, meaning they do not emit hazardous fumes into the air, such as those found in some spray paints or solvent-based concrete stains.

Interior concrete flooring made from concrete coloring and staining has replaced the traditional carpet where homeowners desire a unique alternative while still having a hard floor surface. Acid-stained concrete floors are safe to add elegance and beauty while increasing the value of your home.

Pigmented Stains

Pigmentation is deep penetrating protection that can be applied on the exterior or interior surfaces. If you want an elegant look for your home’s exterior, you can choose patio flooring or something more practical such as garage floors, where the color might prioritize everything else.

Benefits of Pigmented Stains

The many benefits of pigmented stains make them the perfect choice to protect your concrete from dirt, water damage, and scratching. With proper care, these highly resistant finishes will keep their gorgeous appearance for years.

Pigmented stain is the ultimate finish created to add penetrating protection and long-lasting beauty to things such as:

  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Walkways
  • Garage floors
  • Or any concrete surface

These durable stains are a great way to give your concrete surfaces a rustic, artistic look. The colors you can create with these pigmented products will attract everyone who sees them. This is beneficial as it keeps both your installation and maintenance costs much, much lower.

Finally, there are methods to color existing concrete installations – meaning you do not have to start over to get a completely new look. This saves a tremendous amount of time, effort, and money.
