Concrete Staining Colors and Dyes
Concrete dyes and stains are one of the best ways to add color to any existing concrete surface; it greatly improves the overall look. Coloring concrete also increases the property value of areas such as driveways, pool decks, parking areas, large commercial Swimming Pool Deck Staining courtyards, and interior retail spaces. Concrete can be stained with any blend of colors in order to achieve a decorative sealed concrete finish that will last for years to come. Pool decking areas are a perfect location for decorative stained concrete; not only will the old concrete be restored to a colorful surface, but it will also make your outdoor living space complete. Stained concrete compliments any exterior landscaping and blends naturally with the surrounding areas of your home or business.
There are two main types of concrete dyes; solvent, and water-based dyes. Solvent-based dyes are available in several different colors, they are not limited to just earth tones like acid stains. Solvent dyes are more vibrant and bright. Water-based dyes are pastels and are softer in tone. Dyes penetrate concrete with a translucent appearance. They will not cover the concrete surface like common paint or overlays. Concrete dyes can be used to create a custom logo on the concrete surface making your home or business stand out from the rest.
