Services - Concrete Staining
Acid stains and Eco friendly stains for your home or business flooring.
Prepare to be FLOORED!
Concrete staining infuses a luxurious richness into concrete. What's more, stain can even be applied to most existing concrete, making it an ideal, creative solution for revitalizing dull, boring surfaces.
Ditch the old carpet and turn your existing plain concrete into a low maintenance, allergen free, easy clean floor.
Stained concrete can be enhanced even further by scoring the floor to resemble tile joints...
...or include custom logos and designs!
The options just keep on growing!
Along with and endless palette of color and design possibilities, we also offer many types of sealers to protect your investment. Choose from Hi-gloss, Semi-gloss or Satin to achieve the look you desire.
Don't worry! We can also include a non-skid additive for exterior areas that is nearly invisible yet totally effective.
Stain can be applied to new, old and plain or even integrally colored concrete. The most important thing to consider is the condition of the surface. Concrete, like wood, is the perfect canvas for stains because it is porous. But if the surface is covered by glues, coatings, curing membranes, or sealers that inhibit the stain from soaking in, the stain won't be able to penetrate fully and do its thing.
However, here at Concrete Design, we have specialized tools and techniques for addressing these issues. In all of our many years of experience in removing such contaminates, we have yet to encounter a floor that could not be stained when properly prepared.
However, keep in mind that on existing concrete, stains are intended to enhance rather than disguise the surface. They will not hide cracks, blemishes, discoloration, or other flaws. In some cases, that can be an advantage and work well with the design. For example, if you're going for an aged or rustic look, stains can actually accentuate minor blemishes and cracks and add greater distinction and personality.
An existing concrete slab with major cracks or spalling is usually not a good candidate for staining because any patchwork is likely to show right through the stain. A solution is to cover the concrete with a thin cement-based overlay to create a fresh new canvas to work on.
