Concrete staining st louis Over time, the surface of your concrete patio, walkway or garage floor might dull and wear away. Concrete staining is the perfect option if you are looking for a budget friendly and long lasting decorative option for your floors. Stains can be applied to both new and old concrete slabs.

Acid stains are translucent, penetrating stains that etch and permanently change the color of the concrete by reacting chemically with the hydrated lime in the slab. They can be used indoors and outdoors to create various effects using different colors.



Our acid stains are designed, not only to add color to your St Louis concrete floor, but also to infuse it with rich, deep translucent earth tones.

With acid staining, no two floors will ever look the same, as the final result varies depending on the concrete's composition, the concrete slab's age, and its surface porosity.

Water & Acid Stain St Louis

Depending on their target look, floor owners can choose to do concrete staining with an acid stain or a water-based stain. Here is an overview of each concrete staining type:

Acid Stain

Concrete staining acid solution is a reactive type, producing different shades and tones of the actual color used. The metallic salt content of it creates a chemical reaction as it comes in contact with the lime content of the concrete floor. As a result, the random effects created may be similar to leather, natural stone, or mottled concrete surfaces. The effects are so unique that no two concrete staining acid floors look exactly alike. Acid concrete staining is available in colors like brown, tan, terra cotta, subtle blue-green, and other earthly hues.

Water Stain

Water-based stain is a non-reactive stain that is perfect for more specific and meticulous designs. It comes in a wider spectrum of concrete stain colors that dry to an opaque finish. You may mix two or more colors to create interesting hues on concrete floors.
