Why Choose Stained Concrete?
Stained concrete is a great choice if you want to achieve a unique decorative effect and at a fair price. At a small cost, you can create a wide range of special effects and colors using stained concrete, whether indoors or outdoors. Concrete stains also produce an opaque and solid effect.
Is Concrete Staining a Work You can do on Your Own??
Concrete staining requires special tools and application procedures if you will get good results. Remember that after the staining is done, it is not possible to correct it. Since you may be working with acid-based chemicals, your safety is also very important. Therefore, this is best left to an experienced stained concrete contractor.
Can all Kinds of Concrete be Stained?
A concrete contractor can apply water and acid-based concrete on old, new, plain, or colored concrete. These can also be used indoors or outdoors and on a wide range of surfaces such as kitchen countertops, pool decks, driveways, and walkways.
The only key consideration before staining a concrete surface is its condition. If it is already covered in glue, grime, coating, or sealers that can prevent the stain from permeating, it will be hard to achieve the desired look.
What Color Options Can I Choose From?
Your option will depend on whether you are using water or acid-based stains. The majority of manufacturers have eight hues, mostly consisting of subtle earth tones like brown, terra cottas, soft blue-green, and tans. The good news is that you can mix two stain colors to achieve your desired shade.
How Do I Pick The Right Stain Color?
Your choice of stain color will depend on your personal preference. Do you want to complement or match your current color scheme? However, since stains are permanent, it may be advisable to choose a neutral tone such as browns, grays, greens, and tans.
How is Stained Concrete Maintained?
While stained concrete doesn’t flake like pain, it only permeates through the top layer of a concrete surface and will finally wear away as a result of getting exposed to weather or because of traffic. To extend the life of the stain, use an interior floor and clear sealer with good floor wax. To ensure that stained concrete continues looking good, you should clean it regularly by dust mopping or even wet mopping with a cleaner that has a neutral pH.
For the best results in your stained concrete, you need to engage a qualified and experienced concrete contractor.
