Stained Concrete Colors
Many people are sick and tired of the same old same old. They do not want the drab dull coloring that they see all over the place. What kind of fun are things going to be if everything is the same color? I don’t believe it is any fun so let’s look at what you need to do so you can enjoy concrete stain colours on your concrete.
If you ar worried about concrete stain colors being expensive then you really should just put that out of your mind. This is actually one of the easiest and the cheapest ways to make your concrete look great. Let’s go ahead and look at some things that you should know first.
There are a couple of options that you have when it comes to these stains. You can either go with an acid stain or an acrylic stain. If you decide to go with acid stains they work by chemically reacting with free lime that is in the surface and this will make for a natural looking color that is translucent. You should know that every concrete surface will react otherwise and your job will be totally unique. On the other hand the acrylic stains are waterborne and they have pigments that will seep into the pores and then adhere into the concrete. This kind is going to give you more of a consistent semi translucent color.
When you enter into any type of project you need to make sure that you have expectations that ar going to be realistic. You may be quite happy with how the spotting turns that dull gray concrete into a lovely colorful finish but you can never really have complete control over the look that you are going to get, this is especially true when you are working with acid stains. No two surfaces are alike so you have to remember that you are not going to get results that look the same. You may think since you have been doing this for a while that you can make it turn out the same but you will non be able to.
