Why Concrete Staining Is Good
Are you unhappy with a concrete area at your home and you know you need it changed but you’re just not sure what to do with it? Do you replace it? Do you cover it? Do you want to take the least invasive approach possible but don’t know where to turn? You are in the right place!
Staining your concrete can completely turn the look and feel of your home around and provide you with the much needed change you’ve been looking for without having to do major construction or having to replace the concrete. Staining can be a great alternative.
There are two types of concrete stain. Reactive and Non-reactive. Reactive stains are water-based acidic solutions that contain metallic salts that react with the concrete’s lime content. Once the chemical reaction takes place, the stain forms a permanent bond with the concrete and won’t chip off or peel away. Non-reactive stains are water-based acrylic stains that don’t rely on a chemical reaction to impart color. Instead, they penetrate the concrete surface and only deposit their pigment particles into the open pores. Concrete staining adds character to your surfaces instead of providing it with a solid effect without looking like a paint or colored coating. Stains permeate the concrete rich with translucent tones. It is also important to understand that when staining different areas with the same color and shade that there will be variation in the finish due to the nature of concrete.
Concrete staining as especially grown in popularity over the years due in part to its wide variety of colors, tones, and patterns that it offers. Whether you’re looking for an antique finish or giving your home that sleek modern appeal, concrete staining can accomplish both.
