Concrete flooring is incredibly versatile, and it is also one of the more durable flooring materials on the market. Although uncolored concrete has its place in some projects, if you really want your flooring to stand out, you should consider a concrete stain.
Types of Concrete Stains
The right combination of concrete stain and sealer can give your concrete flooring the look of premium building materials – it can also give your flooring a one-of-a-kind look that is different from anything you’ve ever seen before. Before you choose a concrete stain for your project, take a moment to learn about the different types:
Water-Based Non-Reactive Stains – Water-based stains affect concrete in a similar way that stains affect wood – they penetrate deeply and deposit their color well. This type of concrete stain comes in an unlimited number of colors, and they do very well as highlight colors on surfaces that have been stained previously.
Acid-Based Reactive Stains – This type of stain uses a combination of acid and metallic salts to permanently etch and deposit the color into the desired surface. Acid-based stains offer a greater depth of color and a one-of-a-kind appearance, but they are a little bit more difficult to apply.
Concrete Dye Stains – Concrete dye stains consist of finely ground color particles that are dissolved in a liquid solution for application. There are a limited number of colors, but they can be combined into an unlimited number of blending options and can be applied in different ways to achieve different effects.
