Superior Acid Stained Concrete
Enhance the Beauty of the Floor with Staining and Resurfacing Flooring Systems
Acid stained concrete happens where the surface of the substrate is forced into a chemical reaction, leaving behind a decorative finish. If the surface is damaged, soft or in need of a screed, it is possible to lay a cementitious overlay in order to create a smooth, clean surface and then stain the overlay itself.
After the chemical reaction is complete and subsequent neutralisation, the surface has an epoxy resin applied to enhance the stain colour and provide a “depth” or 3-Dimensional feel to the surface. A professional application team using quality materials can achieve incredible effects and deliver a beautiful, seamless, and truly individual floor.
The end result is that your floor has an “antiqued” look to it that can be used to add a further dimension dimension to your entire internal decorative goals. When finished you will have one seamless slab, easy to clean and maintain.

What to Consider
Acid-Staining is a technique that brings out the natural imperfections in your floor and turns them into a thing of beauty. This does, however, mean that there is no guarantee exactly how the finished product will look until it has been completed.
Acid-staining is probably the most unpredictable of all resin-flooring options as it relies purely on how your slab is going to react to the chemicals. There are other, similar options that bring a greater guarantee on the look of the finished product. Contact us today to find out what’s right for your floor.
