Stained concrete floors give a unique look that porcelain or ceramic cannot. The acid stain that is used works with the features of your existing concrete and gives the rooms in your home an elegant look that will last the lifetime of the concrete.
Stained concrete is easy to clean and maintain, making it very popular in homes as well as high-traffic commercial areas. Whether you want it all over your home or in select rooms, Custom Concrete Creations will offer recommendations, so the room or rooms of your home meet your design goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between acid stains and water-based stains?
Acid-based concrete stains penetrate into the surface and react chemically with the concrete to form a permanent color. The color they impart is translucent rather than opaque, resulting in deep, rich tones and attractive marbling effects. Water-based stains are more opaque and do not last as long to traffic and cleaning products. We use an acid-based stain for the look as well as the durability.
What colors are available for stained concrete?
The acid stain we use and recommend comes in mostly earth tones; browns, terracotta tones, and even blue-greens.
Can you apply a pattern to the concrete floor?
Yes! Look through the gallery to get a few ideas. We use a diamond grinding method to create the patterns in the concrete. It really adds that extra touch that makes the room breath-taking.
