Although it is gaining a lot of exposure lately, stained concrete is not just a plain fad. This decorative concrete technique has been around since 1980s and it continued to improve ever since then. Today, the result of staining concrete is so stunning that it is easily mistaken as a more expensive flooring material.
Differentiating Stained ConcreteStaining is just one of the many techniques on decorative concrete. It can either be acid staining or water-based staining. Both types achieve color and texture by chemical reaction and not just by merely covering the surface with colors. The result is a longer-lasting color that looks more stunning, making staining one of the most preferred ways of decorating the boring concrete. But will a stained concrete stand out when compared with other flooring materials?
Carpets, ceramic tiles, vinyl and linoleum are available in wide array of colors, textures, shapes, and designs. Stained concrete, on the other hand, offers unlimited colors, textures, and overall styles because it can be customized and handcrafted depending on what you want. It cannot just mimic other materials; it can be beautiful on its own, too. No wonder why it’s a popular choice for logo creation on the floor.
On top of that, it has the same performance and longevity as the natural stones. The secret is that the stain acts as a sealant for the porous concrete, making it crack-proof. It can even withstand damages from moisture and humidity. Thus, allergens, mildew, and molds will never thrive in your house unlike carpets do.
Stained concrete can also store solar energy during the day and release it at night, thus improving indoor temperature without spending more on electricity. Natural stones are the closest competitors of stained concrete. But the advantage of the latter is its cheaper cost per square foot, which ranges from $2 to $15. The total cost will be cheaper with an existing concrete surface and it will be more expensive if a concrete layer still has to be poured.
Stained concrete is also as flexible as other flooring materials. It can be applied to literally any floor—from the living room, kitchen, basement and bathroom to sun rooms, patios, and pool decks.
