Concrete By Design offers concrete staining which is a great way to give your surface a unique and colorful look. Concrete staining appeals to many people who want to achieve unique decorative effects for a reasonable cost. Not only does concrete staining allow you to add color to your concrete, it also produces an opaque effect and translucent tone to help create a beautiful surface. Concrete By Design offers two types of concrete staining which are acid stains and water-based stains.
Acid stains are made up of metallic salts dissolved in an acid and water solution. They penetrate into the surface and react chemically with the concrete to form a permanent stain. This will create translucent coloring which results in rich tones and marbling effects.
Water-based stains usually is a blend of acrylic polymers and pigments which fill the pores of the concrete surface to produce a colored surface. There is no chemical reaction in a water-based stain so the color will be more consistent than an acid stain.
