Concrete can be enriched by using a variety of decorative dyes and stains. It combines a luxurious rich beauty along with functionality to any concrete floor. After all, why leave concrete bare when you can easily and economically enhance its appearance with some creativity and color.

Dyes and stains do have some differences.  Dyes are nonreactive and impart color by penetrating the concrete by using a carrier such as solvents, water or densifiers. Their ease of use, extensive variety and vibrancy of color has made them very popular.

Stains which react chemically with the calcium hydroxide in concrete which allows it to penetrate into the concrete. Stains can be applied to most existing or new concrete, making it an ideal solution for revitalizing dull surfaces and creating a beautiful translucent color tone to the concrete surface.
