Stained Concrete Tampa FL
Interior flooring has traditionally consisted of carpet, tile & vinyl. However, because of concrete porous qualities acid staining has become the perfect design system for new and existing Interior and Exterior flooring. If the existing surface is damaged, such as glue, stains, mortar, etc… can’t be removed after the prepping process. The cementitious overlay toppings applied will create a new canvas (surface) so, to achieve the natural, marbleized, or earth tone colors desired.
How do we do it
Our team will never use a broom as it will leave your stained concrete with brush strokes, so that after part of the work is done, we can go back and mist more stained lightly on the brushed area. That eliminates trailing brush strokes and gives you a natural, consistent look. We start from one side of the room and work to the other while keeping the edges wet. Spray four feet wide back and forth, until the room is finished. When done, we allow the area to dry out.
Stained Concrete Services Tampa Floor wax will give to the acid stained concrete floors an extra layer of protection while making them look great and make it easy to clean. The floor finish is easily applied, we just need to pump it onto the floor and then scatter it over the applicator.
Allow each coat to dry for an hour until the second is applied.
Now that the floor is staining, you should have the confidence you need to tackle the plain gray floor and turn it into a beautiful and unique item. At Stained Concrete Tampa FL you can also get expert advice on staining your concrete.
Time will also differ with stain-acid dependency. When the stain dries out we neutralize the mixture of water and baking soda immediately. That will stop the reactions to the concrete and acid stain. We then mop the residue and clean it with clean water, mop and wet vac. Do not walk into an unneutralized area since this would leave footprints on your board.
Our team will clean your floor more than twice with a vacuum, water and gas, and allow it to dry. Upon drying we know the floor will look chalky or hazy. This will look good after it’s sealed. Once we’re done for the day, you need to allow it to dry up overnight. We then apply the concrete sealer the following morning.
You are familiar with the methods of staining concrete floors, and our team can now add your sealer. When handled properly, we make sure it’s easy to apply. It’s critical that we use a sealer that suits your concrete stain well. We choose to either spray or roll it on; being careful not to leave too many roller marks or spray. A thin coat is going to work well as we need to apply another coat the next day.
