Encinitas Concrete Staining & Restoration

Encinitas ConcreteWhat myself, and no doubt most people think of first when they hear of Encinitas acid concrete stains are actual stains that damage your concrete floor. I know I thought so at first, but after further investigation I found myself amazed at what concrete acid stains really are.

Most concrete floors are rough and unsightly, and certainly not the floor surface of choice when it comes to anything other then, say, garage floors. Apparently though, concrete floors may be treated with concrete acid stains to give them a polished look, a smooth texture, color, even eye catching patterns and designs. Treated concrete floors can be suited to any room, purpose and decor.

What are concrete acid stains? Well, as I have recently learned, they are acid based chemical stains that seep into the surface of your concrete floor and transform its texture, pattern and color, based on the type of acid based chemical stain used. They can even be used to mimic the look, feel and texture of more expensive floors such as tile and stone, with nearly indistinguishable tangible differences.

What are the advantages of concrete acid stains? As I may have mentioned in the previous paragraph, they can make your cheaper concrete floors look and feel just like more expensive stone and tile floors, giving your room the style and elegance for a fraction of the price. Concrete acid stains also improve the durability of your floor by creating an extra surface layer to protect the rest of the floor from erosion.

If you are looking for the best places to buy concrete acid stains, I would suggest your nearest home improvement store at first. Even though they might not have the prices you can get online, they tend to have knowledgeable sales representatives that will be happy to answer the questions you are sure to have if you are new to the concept of concrete acid stains.

If you are feeling familiar enough with the above topic and would like to save some money on your order, you should try online stores. Shopping online has many benefits, such as lower prices, greater variety, and better price comparisons. However, some online stores do not display their shipping and handling fee as visibly as they could, so be sure you ascertain the exact charge and add it to the price of the product itself before you buy.

In both traditional and online stores, you can usually save some money on your order if you buy in bulk, however because treated concrete is rather durable you probably will not find much use for more concrete acid stains then you need so it is probably smart to buy only as much as you need, even if it means paying a little more per square foot.

Because care must be taken to make sure your treated concrete has just the right color and texture, you would be well advised to hire a professional to work on your floors the first time or two, however resources on how to apply concrete acid stains yourself are available all over the internet, and often are free.
