Types of Concrete Stains
Whatever it is that you're looking for with your new concrete stain will determine the type of stain required to get the job done. There are generally two main types of stains for concrete; acid-based and water-based acrylic staining. If you have ever seen a surface with a nice gloss but darker, earthier tones it was more than likely achieved using an acid-based stain. This technique has been around for ages and is an excellent way to transform the indoor flooring of a commercial building or even your home. The other type of stain, water-based acrylic, is what was more than likely used if you have seen more decorative and colorful staining. Unlike acid that chemically alters the composition of the concrete, the water-based solutions do not. You can use this type of staining to create colors like green, blue, orange and red which is why a lot of people get it for their home interior and exterior to accent any existing interior design they may have.
