Stained concrete floors offer rich, vibrant colors that stay true over time. Stained floors are a popular choice among homeowners, business owners and designers because they are easy to maintain. The various stained concrete designs, color options, application techniques and finishes derive a unique look that can be applied on both interior and exterior surfaces. Some stained concrete ideas include patios, driveways, walkways and basements.
Stained concrete cost is one of the most reasonable options out there, especially when you consider the low maintenance and longevity of this material. We’ll give your home a sense of uniqueness and artisan flair that is sure to make your friends and family envious. Stains for concrete come in three general categories: acid-based chemical stains, acetone dye, and water-based acrylics. The results our team can achieve are simply limitless!
Unfortunately, stain cannot hide pre-existing cracks, flaws or blemishes in concrete. If your existing concrete slab has major cracks or spalling, be sure to ask about our proprietary resurfacing process over existing concrete to get your slab in tip-top shape before stain is applied.
You can expect stained concrete cost to be one of the best values out there. Concrete floors are invincible to tearing, gouging, molding and water damage. Unlike alternative flooring, such as carpet, tile and hardwood, our work can last for decades to come and rarely needs replacement.
- Easy Care & Maintenance
Our work and materials are backed by a 3-year warranty*. To keep your new concrete floors looking their best, simply clean surfaces periodically with a dry dust mop and an occasional wet mop using a neutral-pH cleaner. It’s that simple!
- Reduce Allergens
Stained concrete floors are an excellent option for those who suffer from asthma or allergies. Unlike other organic flooring options, our floors don’t harbor dust mites and other allergens and won’t support the growth of mold or bacteria so you can breathe easy.

We promise that with our cement coatings applying, you will never be disappointed in the beautiful colors surface coated or their durability. Each pigment has been specially formulated for use on surfaces and has been designed specifically to stay vibrant and true to its original color even years after being subjected to harsh wear, tear, weather and sunlight.

Hard wearing, durable solutions for both commercial and high performance industrial floors, epoxy floorings and coatings are ideal for use in warehouses, pharmaceutical manufacturing buildings, food and beverage plants, laboratories, industrial manufacturing facilities and others. An epoxy floor coating that protects concrete floors creates a high gloss, durable surface that solves most challenges of industrial environments, offering a variety of benefits:
- Easy to clean, seamless and non-porous.
Epoxy has no seams where bacteria and debris can accumulate and can be easily wiped free of dirt, dust and debris. Epoxy concrete floors withstand the extreme temperatures of wash-downs and steam cleaning.
- Exceptionally durable and long-lasting.
Epoxy flooring systems protect concrete substrate slabs, transforming them with a high performance surface resistant to moisture that will last for years to come.
- Attractive and aesthetically pleasing.
Epoxy dries to a high gloss shine and is available in a variety of colors, textures and applications such as solid colors and decorative additives that can beautify a variety of working environments.
- Chemically resistant.
Epoxy floorings and coatings protect concrete from aggressive chemicals, acids, alkalis and solvents that destroy the surface, the underlying materials and can even penetrate into ground water.
- Improves safety in the workplace.
Concrete floor epoxy ensures slip, impact, heat and fire resistance. In addition, high gloss floor coatings can also improve brightness in a work area by as much as 300 percent.
- Withstands impact from high traffic.
Use different colors and textures of epoxy flooring systems to define safety zones, foot traffic zones, forklift zones and work zones. Epoxy floors reduce wear on transport vehicles, allow for faster material movement, increase productivity and prevent wear and damage to the floor.
Preparation is the key!
No matter what your final intentions are for your concrete slab, its surface should always be very well prepped. The key to every good overlay, staining, or sealing project lies in good surface preparation. A concrete project will last only as long as the amount and quality of prep-work done before any finished coating has been applied.
The first priority for every job involving concrete should be to strip off whatever coating was there previously, either chemically or mechanically. Once the previous coating has been removed, the slab can be cleaned and profiled. Since most concrete becomes damaged over time, you now need to check for and repair cracks and patch holes and pits in the substrate. To prevent future breakdowns in your concrete surface, dealing with the primary cause of most failed slabs – moisture – is the last step in a well-prepared surface.
Strata Decorative Concrete, LLC carriers the best products for each and every step of your project and we’ll make sure that your finished concrete surface lasts a very long time.
What kind of concrete surface preparation is the best choice?
When you are applying a sealer, stain, coating, or cement-based overlay to a slab of concrete, it is essential to have a surface that you can properly bond. Without proper concrete surface preparation, your next stage of application will be doomed to have adhesion failure. There are two ways to clean concrete? Mechanical and chemical.
1. Mechanical Repair of concrete surface preparation utilizes shot blasting, diamond grinding, and sanding. This process removes the cream off the surface and gets underneath the problem.
2. Chemical concrete surface preparation uses a variety of liquid solutions to remove dirt, debris, mineral deposits, mastics, glues, and sealers. This process is used when the integrity of the cement surface is sound and does not require mechanical applications
