Concrete Staining San Diego CA
If you like the benefits of concrete flooring but aren’t too excited about the drab gray color, concrete staining can transform your concrete into eye popping designer flooring. Traditional concrete floors are normally only seen in the garage, basement, and patio and also in commercial and industrial spaces. With vibrant and beautiful colors, stained concrete flooring can now be seen in rooms not used to concrete floors such as the kitchen or living room! If you wanted to give your home a modern contemporary personality, start taking a look at concrete staining floors in San Diego.
Stained concrete floors can be used in commercial spaces too. Breweries and pubs, clothing stores, and restaurants to name a few, will benefit greatly from a stained concrete floor. Many of the shopping malls in San Diego have either concrete polished floors or stained floors.
Concrete staining is different from stamped concrete. It involves putting an acid or water based mixture on top of you concrete base. A chemical reaction occurs with the concrete, staining it and permanently changing the color. The staining is not uniform since concrete is not uniform. When finished, your stained floor will look marble like and every floor will have its own unique stain! Colors can be bright and vibrant or they can be richly dark. Different solutions and mixtures will lead to different colors.

Concrete Stained Flooring Benefits
✔ Creative Flexibility – All stained floors will look different and there are many of different types of staining. Did you know that you can stain a floor to make it look like wood? It can also be stained with different mixtures to mix and match different colors. It does not need to be uniform!
✔ Color Durability – Unlike paint, which can fade, peel, or chip, your stained flooring will last for a very long time. After the chemicals seep deep into the pores of the flooring, the already durable concrete floor will prevent the color inside from changing or fading over time.

How we Install Concrete Staining in San Diego
- Flooring Staining Preparation: Debris, dust, and imperfections will be seen right through the staining layer and must be addressed. Completely cleaning or polishing the floor will fix the imperfections. The top layer should be cured for several weeks, 21-28 days, for any brand new floor before any stain be added.
- Staining the Floor: The stain is applied to the flooring. This process can take up to 2 days to dry depending on the number of layers desired.
3. Cleaning and Neutralized the Stain: Acid based stains need to be neutralized while water based stains do not.
4. Sealing the Floor: Sealant is added to the finished product. It protects the stained floor from damage and future stains. The floor may need additional coatings of sealant in the future depending on how much traffic the floor receives.
