Acid Stained Concrete
Staining adds a luster that no other technique provides. It won’t just give you a flat, unimpressive finish; it will produce translucent color that will change based on the type of surface it is being applied to. If you would like for your floors to look like an expensive marble floor, contact Nashua Stamped Concrete where our contractors are capable of doing this for you. Not only can they make your floors look like marble with acid stained floors, they can also make them look like natural wood and even leather. Acid stains consist of water, metallic salts and hydrochloric acid. Once applied to your flooring, they penetrate and react with the calcium hydroxide that is found in the concrete. The metallic salt is able to penetrate the concrete due to the acid. When the stain starts reacting to the solution, it then is embedded into your concrete. It is a good investment because acid staining won’t chip or peel. The stains are typically produced in earth tones like blue-greens, browns, tans and terra cotta.
Advantages of an Acid Stained Floor
You may be trying to determine if acid stained floors are appropriate for your room. At Nashua Stamped Concrete, we can stain colored concrete floors or plain floors, old floors or new ones. If you have a room with a dull floor and want to bring it back to life, acid staining is a good option. Since the acid completely penetrates through concrete, they offer UV stability and the flooring doesn’t wear out as quickly. Our contractors often apply this technique to kitchen countertops, patios, walkways and even family rooms. If you want a more dramatic or elegant look for your fireplace, an acid stained wall will offer you this effect.
An Inexpensive Flooring Option
If you’re concerned about the floors in or around your home, but don’t have the budget needed to have the entire area redone, consider allowing our contractors at Nashua Stamped Concrete to provide you with the look you want without the expensive price tag. It is true that real stone, wood and marble is expensive but who needs the real thing when we can offer you the same look for less. In most cases, even our customers cannot tell the difference between the real deal and stained floors. In fact, our customers are usually surprised to see how much the floors we have stained, look like the real materials. If you have a budget and need to make sure you can stick to it, acid stained concrete flooring is an inexpensive option.
