What is Concrete Staining and Sealing?
Stained concrete has a notion that's comparable to dyeing or changing the color of other materials, including wood. Instead of using paint to create an opaque surface, staining allows you to achieve a variety of shades and tones on concrete using a variety of solutions and processes.

Concrete Staining and Coating Costs
Your project's cost will be affected if your present surface is in bad shape. The price per square foot might vary widely due to the wide range of design alternatives. For example, grinding, staining, and sealing a basic concrete slab will be less expensive than designing a bespoke one. A member of our installation team will guide you through the process and help you decide EXACTLY the appearance and finish you want. Contact us right away for a free design consultation!
Here's how we do it!
Surface Prep: Concrete can be permeable by etching, grinding, scarifying or shot blasting. We utilize diamond tooling to achieve the appropriate CSP ( Concrete Surface Profile ) for the slab before installing your new flooring system. We make reparations to any cracks by chasing them out with a diamond blade & filling with a specialized joint filler before being ground flush with the concrete. Large areas of spalling, tack strip holes, etc. may require an overlay to provide a fresh surface to work with after patch work is complete.
It's time to clean up: We use a self-contained hard-surface pressure washing machine (TURBO-HYBRID TH40) to thoroughly clean the surface of the concrete, and remove any possible contaminants that could negatively impact the coating process. We then acid etch & neutralize the substrate to ensure the STRONGEST chemical & mechanical bond possible! After grinding, cleaning, and acid washing we have achieved MAXIMUM porosity for the concrete subfloor. Now it's ready for coating or staining.
Prepping the materials: Preparing the product for an application requires mixing according to the manufacturer's directions. If required or specified we then add color.
Adding Patterns & Texture: Hand trowels, rakes, stamps, and other specialized equipment are used to masterfully create your custom design. Many designs & concrete coating systems call for multiple layers, usually a prime coat, followed by a body coat & protected with a top coat. Some cementitious overlay systems call for two or more cementitious overlays to create the desired effect. All these factors are considered and discussed in detail with the client to achieve the PERFECT floor, everytime. We can realistically mimic stones of all types, fashion brick patterning & artistic borders, or create a subtle yet modern look that has a clean, fresh feel. Whatever it is you desire, Floors-u-Adore can make it a reality!
Then, cure & seal it: After the overlay hardens, we coat it with a sealant for further protection. Every top-coat isn't created equally! We provide superior, high-performance coatings that CAN'T be found at hardware stores. We use industrial strentgh sealers that last over time & require little-to-no maintenace. Options available for SATIN or GLOSS finishes. Every time a customer asks us if they need to seal their outside concrete, we tell them that they absolutely need to. Your concrete surface will appear better for longer if you use a sealant. Stain resistance and ease of maintenance are also improved as a result of this treatment.
Note: Concrete resurfacing is not an easy task. This is a job that can be done by our expert contractors.
