Colours for Unique Concrete Floor Effects
Concrete stains and dyes are a great way to bring dull and gray concrete surfaces to life. Whether you prefer a stained or polished finish, both can provide a striking look that will transform your concrete surface into a rich and unique environment.
With a variety of colours and application techniques there is no limit to decorative possibilities. With the translucent nature of the stain, variations in color can resemble natural stone or marble.
You can choose to use a unique stain or a decorative pattern using several colors in order to create an attractive and durable flooring solution. Your color can be added to concrete with the use of concrete stains or dyes.
Stains – We offer both acid and water-based stains. For the most part, concrete stains etch the surface of concrete instead of penetrating deeper like dyes. The end result is a mottled, variegated finish. Stained floors provide a terrific visual effect that is cost effective and best suited for offices, homes, retail outlets, or any other space where design and cost are factors.
Dyes – Concrete dyes are available in water or solvent-based formulas, producing a range of different effects, from translucent to opaque. Depending on the base, effects such as marbled or a more uniform or opaque look can be achieved. Because dyes are much smaller in particle size that stains, they penetrate the concrete’s pores more easily.
Choosing a stain or dye greatly depends on whether the concrete is indoors or outdoors, and what effect you hope to achieve.
Floor Finish – Because we specialize in concrete finishing and resurfacing, we use a variation of sealers and hardeners to protect your surface. The type of sealer chosen depends on the look you are after as well as the intended use. Another factor is whether the concrete surface is indoors or outdoors.
