Acid Stained Concrete
Applying a marble finish to concrete is easy and can be performed by new homeowners and concrete professionals alike. Acid Stain easily transforms your concrete floor into a stunning faux-marble masterpiece that costs thousands less than real marble or stone. This affordable flooring option is low-maintenance and more durable than normal flooring options, like vinyl, but with Direct Colors Azure Blue coloring, the results will be anything but “normal!”
This was my first experience with acid staining a concrete floor, so I did several online searches and finally decided to use Direct Colors’ products. I was impressed with the online pictures of completed projects, the How-to videos, color options, and personal service given by Direct Colors’ employees.
Easily the most striking of the Acid Stain Colors, Azure Blue Concrete Acid Stain delivers an aqua-topaz mineral finish that will wow your family, friends, and neighbors. When used alongside Brown or Red Concrete Acid Stain Colors, Azure Blue creates a stunning similarity to true marble. Azure Blue Concrete Acid Stain should never be applied to a wet or damp surface, as this results in a black and brown spotting on the stain’s surface. Azure Blue is recommended for indoor projects only.
This week's Project of the Week comes from a customer in South Saint Paul Minnesota. She describes the project as a "family room in a new construction home- we love the results!" We do too! She's done a fine job creating a one-of-a-kind acid stain look on the floors using Shifting Sand, Cola and Coffee Brown Acid Stains. They've opted for a satin gloss finish with the DCI Water Based Sealer. I love Shifting Sand Acid Stain so I'm all about it and I hope you are too!
