Stained Concrete

Stained concrete is so popular for concrete surfaces because there are many concrete stain colors to choose from—and a variety of ways to apply the colors, creating many different effects. You can even choose to create a customized pattern, design, or logo for your stained concrete floor.

Staining options

SUNDEK has three different products we use for staining. The product that’s right for your project depends on what look you’re going for. This 2-minute video gives insight into the three SUNDEK stains and what they offer.

concrete acid stain

SunAcid is an acid-based stain that etches the surface where it reacts to chemical compounds, creating a translucent marbled effect. When using SunAcid, you have a variety of earth-toned colors to choose from.

water based stain

SunH20 is a water-based stain that doesn’t etch the surface but lasts a long time because of its adhesive properties. Colors can be layered and combined. Whereas colors with SunAcid are earth tones, colors with SunH20 are more vibrant. Water-based stains are a better option for people who have allergies or other sensitivities that can be triggered by the compounds in acid-based stains. With SunH20, you get a look that ranges from opaque to translucent.

concrete dye

SunDye is a liquid that is soluble in water or acetone. When used in combination with water, you’ll get color variation. When used in combination with acetone, you get a darker, monotone look. It can be used on its own or with SunAcid to get a specific color.

Damaged floors

Customers often ask if their damaged concrete floors can be stained. We’re happy to report that as long as your surface is viable, the answer is yes. We are skilled in concrete repair and can fix cracks, chips, or other damage in concrete surfaces. By analyzing the damage, we'll determine how it can be prevented from occuring again. After the damage is addressed, we can stain your concrete surface.

Choosing your color

When choosing a concrete stain color, it is important to remember that the colors may vary slightly—it’s part of what makes every stained concrete project unique. Since we're experienced in staining concrete, we can help guide you through the color selection process.
