Decorative Concrete Commercial Applications

Decorative concrete is so popular for commercial applications because it looks sharp, clean and is durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic.

Special stains are formulated to chemically react with the concrete's lime content. Metallic salts in an acidic, water-based solution react with hydrated lime present in hardened concrete to yield insoluble, colored compounds, allowing the stain to lightly etch and bond color into the concrete surface to become a permanent part of the concrete slab.

In the hands of a true professional, it is possible to design a wonderful array of effects. Artistic staining patterns and designs are achieved with the use of basic instruments such as hand brushes, regular and customized mops. Staining patterns and effects are created with the use of ordinary materials such as cloth materials, tree branches and many other props.
