Acid Staining Gives Your Floor an Amazingly Unique Look


Stained concrete, often called colored concrete, is one of the most popular ways to change the look of a concrete slab.  Homeowners, designers and builders are fans of stained concrete because of the unique results they can get by mixing colors and application styles on cement and similar floors.

What is Acid Staining?


Acid staining, also known as acid etching, gives concrete a speckled and multicolored marble-style look.  When concrete is treated with acid staining, it can create beautiful colors such as earth-tone browns, reddish browns, and greens


But we can also create custom shades for you by mixing and matching available colors, or or applying certain colors in different amounts.  By using these acid-based chemical stains, We have been able to achieve rich color schemes that resemble natural stone, marble, wood, and even leather.

This gives a custom look to:

  • Cement Floors

  • Concrete Driveways

  • Outdoor Patios

  • Sidewalks & Walkways


How Acid Staining Works


Each concrete slab will accept the stain in different levels of intensity, which creates natural color variations that give character and distinction to each project.  Most acid stains are a mixture of water, hydrochloric acid, and acid-soluble metallic salts. 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.


Why Acid Staining is Popular


Acid stained floors are a great alternative to carpet, tile and wood flooring.  Not only does it look beautiful, but there are plenty of other benefits.

As you probably already know, deep carpeting can cause serious problems for people who suffer from allergies.  But when you have a cement floor acid stained, you get a beautiful look that also makes cleaning easy. That means less dust, pet hair or other allergy problems just waiting for your family or guests.


With an acid stained floor, there's no need to run a noisy vacuum cleaner.  A damp mop is all that you need for cleaning, and the occasional coat of wax will give your floor an amazing look.
