The sky’s the limit for decorative concrete acid and water-based staining. Our services like chemical concrete stains are used to create rich, looks that resemble natural stone, marble, and wood. New options mean contractors aren’t limited to earth tones as it was in the past.  Water and solvent-based dyes are available in a host of colors including soft pastels, vivid reds, oranges, yellows, and purples. Interestingly, new stain products take less time to apply. They’re also safer to use.

Concrete stains are a mixture of water, hydrochloric acid, and acid-soluble metallic salts. Since concrete is porous, the introduction of stain causes a chemical reaction. The stain then becomes a permanent part of the concrete that won’t fade, chip, or peel. Concrete stains are also translucent. Stains react differently according to the condition of the concrete. With Woodlands Decorative Concrete, the final product always has a unique color and pattern.

How the staining process works

The process is different based on the stain that’s being used, whether the job is indoors or outdoors and the desired effect. It’s always best to follow the instructions that come with the product you use. Staining concrete has four steps:

  • Surface prep
  • Stain application
  • Cleanup including neutralization of acid stain
  • Sealing the concrete
