Concrete is a durable material by itself. In fact, it can withstand years of abuse with minimal damage. However, because it is quite porous, it can discolor and acquire stains that are very unpleasant to look at.
Also, the plain gray utilitarian look can get quite boring. Thanks to decorative concrete stains, it is now possible to turn plain floors into a more vibrant walking surface similar to marble at a fraction of the cost. Acid stain San Diego services are becoming highly popular because of the many perks of stained concrete.
The Perks of Acid Concrete Staining
Concrete staining is a great solution for both exterior and interior decorative concrete surfaces for various reasons:
The exceptional look resulting from an acid staining process is produced by a chemical reaction between the metallic salts that penetrate the concrete floor.
The reactive stains create colors and random patterns that give old or new concrete floors a naturally aged stone look. Because the stain penetrates deep within the concrete, the color stays longer, looks translucent, and is very much permanent.
Acid stain can also be combined with a stamped overlay, classic texture, and other decorative concrete resurfacing.
Practical and Easy to Maintain
Acid stain concrete colors deeply penetrate concrete floors, so it lasts longer. This means regular reapplication is unnecessary because it does not fade or scratch off. This means it would also be a lot easier to clean.
One would not need to worry about wiping or scrubbing the color off. An additional layer of the concrete seal may enhance its durability and reduce the likelihood of damage and cracks. Maintenance and cleaning of acid stain is incredibly easy. Dirt and dust won’t be able to get into the concrete pores.
Thermal mass is a property of decorative concrete that has to do with its ability to absorb and store heat and coolness. This is ideal for the weather in San Diego, CA, because it can keep a room cool even in warm weather, thus, cutting costs for air conditioning.
When it comes to matching floors with a home’s architectural or interior design, decorative concrete staining comes in various colors that homeowners can mix and match. It is often available in brown, black, green, orange, and red. You can also mix and match these colors for unique stunning results!
