Colored Concrete Hire the Pros
Because of concrete’s porous qualities and neutral tone, Stained Concrete is the perfect blank canvas for topically applied color. Using acid-based chemical stains, decorative concrete contractors have been able to achieve rich, earth-toned color schemes resembling natural stone, marble, wood, or even leather, giving a completely custom look to cement floors, concrete driveways, patios, walk ways, sidewalks, pool decks, concrete walls and more.
Forms with different rates of absorption will cause surfaces with different shades of color. … Concrete surfaces that are troweled too early will increase the water-cement ratio at the surface and lighten the color. Concrete which is not properly or uniformly cured may develop discoloration.
The colour pigments used in coloured concrete are UV stable and fade resistant and does not fade. The cement does however change tones during the curing process and as it ages in the weather.
Generally, colored concrete can be cleaned and maintained the same way as any other concrete surface. It is best to lightly clean stains with an approved cleaning product or soap. Many people who use colored concrete for indoor floors prefer to polish the surface for increased sheen.

Colored Concrete Our Process
Most stains are a mixture of water .They work by penetrating the surface and reacting chemically with the hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) in the concrete. The acid in the stain lightly etches the surface, allowing the metallic salts to penetrate more easily. Once the stain reacts, it becomes a permanent part of the concrete and won’t fade, chip off, or peel away. Like stains for wood, acid-based stains are translucent and the color they produce will vary depending on the color and condition of the substrate they are applied to. Each concrete slab will accept the stain in varying degrees of intensity, creating natural color variations that bring character and distinction to each project. You’ll mostly find them in a limited array of subtle earth tones, such as tans, browns, terra cottas, and soft blue-greens. Call (855) 719-1222
