YOUR GUIDE TO STAINING CONCRETE




1. STRIP YOUR CONCRETE SURFACE CLEAN - ensure all oils, dirt, sealant and other elements are completely removed. Use the appropriate tools and methods for cleaning your surface whether it be removing oil, paint, dirt, sealant

2. FIX HOLES AND SURFACE DAMAGE.

3. ENSURE YOUR CONCRETE SURFACE IS COMPLETELY DRY. New concrete should be fully cured before staining, which takes between 21 and 28 days. Paint or stain applied to concrete while it's still hardening can be negatively affected by residual moisture or the changing chemical content in the concrete.

4. SELECT YOUR COLOUR AND TEST A SMALL PATCH AREA BEFORE COVERING THE ENTIRE SURFACE. Decide if applying one or two coats. To ensure you purchase the right amount of colour, measure your area before going to the hardware or paint store.

5. DECIDE ON A PATTERN IF INCLUDING THIS IN YOUR DESIGN.

6. MAKE A LIST OF TOOLS REQUIRED.

7. STAIN YOUR CONCRETE SURFACE.

8. SEAL THE CONCRETE. Ensure you read instructions prior to application.
