Should I Use An Acid Stain Color On My Concrete?

Concrete Colorant #1: Acid Stain

Acid stains are very versatile – they can be used indoors and outdoors, applied to new or existing concrete, and, because they penetrate the concrete’s surface, they have excellent color stability in the sun and resistance to wear.

There are many color options available, although less choice than their water-based counterparts – colors are limited to soft blue-greens and earth tones.

Acid stains are difficult to work with, require specialist tools and application methods, and contain highly corrosive ingredients. For these reasons, acid stains should only be applied by a professional.

Stone Surface Specialists are experts at working with all types of concrete stain, dye and color. Give us a call today at 801 856 0164 to schedule your FREE color consultation.
