This floor finishing method that gives concrete floors the mottled appearance of natural stones. Concrete stain is not a form of coating but a decorative color which is soaked into the surface to produce a marbled and pigmented resemblance of natural stones. Two types of coats are applied using a sprayer or a roller and worked into the concrete surface with a nylon brush. After the stain dries up, a coating should be applied to protect the floor.
Staining is not protective enough and so, it is rinsed after drying and a coat of urethane sealant applied on top to prevent moisture, stains, and chemicals from seeping into the garage floor. Sometimes, the sealant may be waxed periodically depending on the amount of traffic subjected to the garage. There are various forms of sealers available in clear or pigmented versions. They are synonymous with floor paints but are a bit stronger. Sealing is quite easy and only require a roller or brush for spreading. Once dried, they give a gloss or satin-like finish depending on what ingredients are found in the sealer. If you want a tinted seal, we can provide it for you. Like epoxies, sealers can be solvent or water-based.
