Concrete staining is a popular choice that many of our customers have asked us about. It's one of the most cost-effective ways to include a touch of class, beauty, and color to a floor, and we 'd love to discuss your options with you. Why is concrete so popular as a building material? Because it's affordable and long-lasting. What else could you ask for from a building material? How about something besides a plain grey color? That's the one drawback of concrete that people will complain about. In its natural state, it's grey, dull, and boring. That's hardly an ideal material to use for a floor in your house, or even for a patio deck. It's utilitarian, and it will last you a very long time if done well, but most people want something more for their homes.
There are a number of reasons that more and more people are asking us about concrete staining. The main factor is expense. If you are wanting to have a new floor put in, then you've most likely already seen how costly that it can be. If you are having a large area done you can quickly spend several thousand dollars. Doing an entire house can cost over $10,000. Many people don't have that type of money lying around, which implies that they'll have to finance the expense of their new flooring. Why would you go into financial obligation to have your floors redone when concrete staining can be done at a fraction of the cost? Concrete staining can add color, patterns, and character to any space, and it can be done at a portion of the expense of a brand-new flooring.
Another major advantage of concrete staining is that stained concrete maintains its natural strength. Concrete is a popular building product in large part due to its strength. It can last for a life time if mixed and poured properly. Tile, wood, carpet, and other types of flooring don't last anywhere near as long. Why wouldn't you want to try concrete staining when it's economical and can last a lifetime?
The last primary factor that people have an interest in concrete staining is the truth that it triggers very little interruption in your life. Have you ever had somebody set up tile floors in your home? It's a catastrophe. You'll have a week or more of people tearing out your old flooring then installing the brand-new one. Don't forget, you can't stroll on wet tile floors, so that's another disturbance that you'll be forced to handle. Stained concrete can be done in a single day, and it's dry and can be strolled on in only a few short hours.
If you are having an interior room's floor stained an alcohol dye is an excellent option. Alcohol dyes add vibrant color to concrete and they are entirely waterproof once they have dried. The only disadvantage of using alcohol dyes is that they will fade if exposed to direct sunshine for a long time. So, using alcohol dyes outdoors isn't' a great option, and using alcohol dyes in rooms where there is a lot of sunshine isn't a great option either.
The other type of concrete staining that we do is an acid-based stain. Acid-based discolorations provide a number of the advantages of alcohol dyes, but with the included advantage of being resistant to fading when in direct sunshine. The only disadvantage of acid-based discolorations is that they need to be sealed to protect them. A clear polymer coat can safeguard your floor and the stain helping it to last for several years.
When you are interested in having your floorings stained then you need to only trust a professional to work on them. Staining concrete is a relatively simple procedure, but it's not something that can be done well by individuals that do not have any experience doing it. We 'd more than happy to meet with you and show you examples of work that we've done in the past.
