Staining concrete in Toronto is a popular way to finish and enhance an ordinary new or old concrete floor, it provides a unique and very attractive finish, requiring very minimal maintenance and it can be applied to almost every commercial, industrial or residential concrete floor. Many retailers and business offices are also choosing staining concrete for their choice of floor finish.
The process of staining concrete consists in applying a colour dye mixture or a water based eco-stain that will penetrate the concrete. Each concrete slab will accept the stain mixture in different ways of intensity and variations that will create a natural distinctive look to every floor. Sealer is then applied over the stain to protect it. Because staining concrete is a penetrating process, it will naturally change the colour of the concrete and will not fade or peel off like some other types of flooring paint.
More and more designers, architects, business and home owners are choosing staining concrete as their finished floor of choice.
