Concrete Staining

Stained Pool Deck 02

If you’re like most people, concrete floors take up the majority of your property. That’s why it’s no surprise that making your concrete beautiful changes the whole outlook of your property.

But with all this concrete that you have, how can you make it beautiful without also breaking the bank? Science has come up with just the thing – reactive, and non-reactive concrete stains.

Between solid-color and semi-transparent stains, there are thousands of colors and shades available. That variety of colors allows for stains to complement traditional, modern, and contemporary homes alike. If you’re looking to sell your house, concrete staining can be an investment. It may not increase the price of your home directly, but it will certainly make your home a lot more marketable.


Keys to Staining Concrete

1. PREPPING THE SURFACE

Without the proper surface preparation, a concrete stain wouldn’t be able to penetrate the pores of your concrete and will be as good as regular paint – it’ll come right off. There are two things to make sure of when prepping a floor for staining – that the concrete is clean, and that its pores are open.

2. SEALING THE SURFACE

Stained concrete floors do very well with withstanding long years of wear and tear. What gives them a hard time, however, is the UV radiation from the Sun. That’s why, after we spray the stains on your floor, we finish the project off by apply plenty of sealer over the entire surface. And because the sealing is such an important step, it’s just as important to choose the right sealer.

If you’ve ever painted your house, you know that color swatches never match the color of the real paint. That’s even more exaggerated in stains. That’s why, especially if you’re considering semi-transparent stains, we’ll make a sample directly on the surface of your concrete. That’s especially important, considering that most semi-transparent stains produce a chemical reaction with the concrete they’re being applied on, and the outcomes may vary widely.

MAINTENANCE

After we apply as many coats of stain as your desired look requires, we finish the job by applying at least two coats of clear sealer. The sealer protects the surface from wear and tear, and most importantly, from the UV radiation we get here in Southern California. A new coat of sealer must be applied every 12-24 months, based on the amount of sunlight your concrete is subjected to.

WARRANTY
