The process involves first (if applicable), removing the existing surface and grinding the concrete, using a diamond blade machine down to a smooth surface that is ready to accept our industrial grade product. The next step involves the actual application of the stain.
There are many stain products to choose from depending on your desired outcome. Traditional acid stains provide a more variegated look, there are dyes, which provide more consistent looks, and lastly, there are water-based stains that will result in colors that are lighter in tint or pastel looking.
Once the stain is applied and is approved, a clear sealer is applied to the surface to enhance the stains color and create that hardness and durability that will allow you to enjoy the floors for years to come. The sealers are available in three sheens; satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss. Lastly, if it is desired, a custom business logo, graphics, or safety lines can be applied to give your business what it specifically needs. Proper research and preparation is necessary when taking on a flooring project for a commercial space.
