Acid staining concrete is one of the oldest techniques used to achieve a natural looking colour and marbled looking concrete floor. While this technique can be beautiful, it does have several flaws built into its method that recent advances in chemical and equipment technology have allowed us to avoid.

We find decorative dyes and tints work much better and provide a more predictable outcome as compared to a reactive state like acid stained concrete. The major benefit to using a decorative dye is that the floor does not need to be neutralized with gallons of chemicals and freshwater prior to staining the floor. The other benefit is that because the colour is not dependent on a chemical reaction, we can produce a near exact match, for your vision of colour.
