Stains fill the concrete pores to permeate it with radiant, translucent quality that differs depending on the type and quality of surface that they are applied to and the method of staining being utilized upon.

How Do We Stain Concrete? How much does Concrete Staining Cost?
Our company has been around for years and has handled lots of concrete jobs in the city. For staining the concrete, film-forming, penetrating, and acid stains are three of the methods that we use on concrete surfaces. Each will produce different tints, shades, textures, and your concrete will have its own distinct decorative appearance. Please note that each concrete and staining style or method will produce a different design; it will have its own unique finishing.
To give you an idea how this works, film-forming is the most common type of method in staining concrete. It is used like a paint wherein you coat the concrete surface or put a layer on top to add color, style, or tint to your concrete. One setback though, is that it will eventually fade, flake, or peel off over time and if regularly exposed to harsh elements. Penetrating stain, on the other hand, acts as the name suggests. It deeply penetrates the pores of the concrete.
And unlike film-forming methods, penetrating stain techniques are more permanent and minimize the chances of fading, peeling, and flaking. This is usually water-based and is translucent and can show the defect or flaws in your concrete. Do not worry, expert masons and concrete technicians like what we have at UC Concrete and Masonry can turn this into a form of art. And lastly, the acid staining technique. This one is quite expensive and needs to be done by experts. Acid stains can produce a natural-looking marble or a natural stone.
Staining concrete’s price will generally vary depending on the style, the complexity, and methods used. But to give you a ballpark figure, a simple staining job would cost around $2 to $4 per square foot for a simple and very basic staining job. For a more complicated and high-end design, contractors will charge you between $12 to $25 per square foot.
Can my Cured Concrete Still Be Stained?
Basically, our concrete engineers can still stain your concrete even when cured completely. We can still turn it into a piece of art for just as long as glue, oil, grease, sealers, and wax are not present or have not contaminated the concrete’s pores. If any of these contaminants are present, it will be very hard, if not impossible, for the stain to work its way to your concrete’s pores. If you want to know if you can still salvage your concrete?
