Acid Stained Concrete

Chemical reactive concrete stain is a mixture of hydrochloric acid and heavy metals / salts which when applied to concrete, chemically reacts with the minerals in portland cement and changes the color of concrete. This can be done on old or new concrete and will last as long as the surface is intact.


While acid staining is not a new technique by any means, it is only within the last few years that it has been gaining popularity with homeowners and business owners alike. Most people think of a rough patio like feel, but a foundation for a home is typically very smooth. Once scored, stained and sealed the surface can take on the look of natural stone and can be as smooth as a marble floor.
