A unique, affordable look for any concrete floor. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
Are you wondering how to revitalize your dull concrete floors without spending a small fortune or going through the hassle of replacing the whole floor?
Concrete staining may be what you are looking for if you want something that will give your home or business individuality.
Concrete staining adds color to the floor and produces a beautiful opaque effect.
Its distinctive look is often described as ‘vintage’ or ‘unique’ and can completely transform the look of a dull concrete floor by adding character.
At Epoxy Floors of Orlando we specialize in durable and long-lasting concrete acid staining, which can be applied on new and old concrete floors, to provide translucent color tones that become a permanent part of the surface.
We use a water-based acidic solution for our acid staining which contains metallic salts that react with the concrete lime. As every concrete is different in composition, age, condition and location, the reaction between the acid and the concrete is always different.
This is why every concrete stained floor is different and unique. We always apply the stain on a test area to see how the acid will react with your concrete.
Acid concrete staining might be one of the most budget friendly ways to achieve a durable, decorative concrete finish, that is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Acid staining is great for Orlando's residential homes, cafes, bars, restaurants, offices, driveways, pathways, hotels and more.
Although robust, concrete without treatment is susceptible to damage like cracks, scratches and chipping. A stained concrete floor with its protective top coat is harder to damage and will be protected against mold and mildew growth on the surface.
The sealed surface of acid-stained concrete is incredibly easy to clean as its smooth, waterproof surface prevents dirt, stains and mildew from getting trapped in the floor. All you will need to keep your floors clean is a mop and a bucket.
Apart from the cost of preparing the concrete floor and applying the acid stain, there are no other costs associated with acid stained floors or maintaining them.
We offer a variety of concrete stain colors, which can enhance the look, not only of your concrete, but interior too.
Concrete stain is a relatively easy process however attention to detail is needed.
We start every project by cleaning your concrete floors. Depending on the condition of the floor we either mechanically grind the top layer to remove any old coatings, stains, dirt, oils and grime or for new, unsealed concrete we pressure wash the floor.
Once the floor is back to a clean canvas, we repair any imperfections in the floor. This is to ensure the structural integrity of the concrete slab.
As every concrete slab is different in composition, age and condition, we do a stain test on a hidden area to see how the acid color will react with the floor. We then mark the floor to create the desired patterns.
After completing our careful preparations we spray the acid color on the floor. Once the concrete is sprayed we leave the stain to react with the concrete and do its magic. Depending on the concrete, we may have to repeat this step until we reach the desired color.
The final step is to apply a protective UV stable concrete sealer.
