Stained Concrete

  • Floors are covered to protect slab
  • Stain and Seal applied before or after sheet rock
  • Final clean and polish at the end of cleaning process
  • The coloring agents used in acid staining processes are not paint products. They are translucent stains which cause a chemical reaction to form color. Surface imperfections and inconsistencies are not covered up as they would be with paint. The marbling and variations in color and occasional surface irregularities enhance the natural appearance of the finished surface and are the reason acid stain is such a popular unique flooring option.
  • Expect to get different reactions from one surface to another and even within the borders of the same slab. Some characteristics are:
    • may not cover evenly
    • will not cover stain sealed or painted surfaces
    • will give different color on different batches of concrete
    • will not give exact color
    • may show concrete defects and blemishes through the stain
    • may show areas of discoloration through the stain
    • will not change surface texture of the concrete
    • samples to be provided on each and every foundation to narrow down color variations
    • non-structural hairline cracks in slab remain visible
