Concrete Staining Service
Staining concrete imparts a luxurious richness that can’t be achieved by any other coloring medium. Rather than produce a solid opaque effect like paint, stains permeate the concrete to infuse it with luminous translucent tones that vary depending on the surface they are applied to and the application techniques used.
Concrete stain can be applied to new, old, plain or integrally colored concrete. Stains are especially effective for revitalizing dull lackluster surfaces. Because stains penetrate the concrete surface, most have excellent UV stability and wear resistance, permitting their use on interior or exterior concrete. Once the stain reacts, it becomes a permanent part of the concrete and won’t fade, chip off or peel away. Stains will not hide cracks, blemishes or other flaws in existing concrete nor will they completely mask an underlying color or conceal the texture of the surface. Concrete stains are semi-transparent and are intended to enhance, rather than disguise the surface, so an existing concrete slab with major cracks or spalling is usually not a suitable candidate for staining because any patchwork is likely to show right through the stain.
Applications range from walkways and patios to family room floors and kitchen counter tops. They can also be applied to vertical surfaces such as walls or fireplace surrounds.
Our team at Colorcraft Painting can stain your concrete in rich, earth-toned colors resembling natural stone, marble, wood and more. Or, we can create unique looks with other bolder colors to match your personal aesthetic.
