Concrete Colorant #2: Water-Based Stain

These stains can also be used indoors and out, and applied to ancient or brand new concrete.

The color options with water-based stains are nearly unlimited, as different colors can be mixed to create custom hues.

On the plus-side, these stains are easier to work with than acid-based stains, as it’s more difficult to kill yourself with scary ingredients. However, predictability of color results can be an issue if you’re not used to working with concrete stains, so for that reason it’s worth at least consulting an expert before attempting a home project. If you do decide to give it a go yourself and it all goes disastrously wrong, the experts at Stone Surface Specialists are more than happy to come out and sort things out for you.
