The transformation of concrete into decorative concrete is achieved through the use of a variety of materials that may be applied during the pouring process or after the concrete is cured, these systems include Stamped concrete floors and Acid Stained Concrete Floors
is a deep penetrating concrete stain system that creates beautiful, mottled color tones in existing concrete.
Concrete staining is not a dyeing or pigment-base coloring systems, but a chemical reaction by applying a mixture of water, mineral salts and muriatic acid to the concrete surface. This chemical reaction with the existing minerals (primarily lime) in the concrete over a period of one to four hours creates new earth tone colors on the concrete.
Staining can be done on old or new concrete in both prestigious commercial projects and intimate residential spaces, acid stained concrete’s unlimited design capabilities transform ordinary concrete into a limitless pallette of color and design.
Stained concrete system provides a distinctive and aesthetically pleasing, low maintenance surface that’s as beautiful as it is durable. Due to its deep penetrating formula, acid stained concrete is resistant to the peeling, chipping and cracking of conventional masonry paints and stains.

is concrete that is patterned, textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures. Stamped concrete is commonly used for all types of exterior and interior flooring. The ability of stamped concrete to resemble other building materials makes stamped concrete a less expensive alternative to using those other authentic materials such as stone, slate,brick, tile, marble and Granite.
There are three steps used in stamped concrete, first is by spreading the color hardener onto the surface of the wet concrete and floating the powder into the top layer of the wet concrete ,
Second step is to produce the accent colour of the freshly poured concrete by applying or spreading color release pigments to the concrete. Color release not only color the concrete but is also a non-adhesive used to prevent the concrete stamps from sticking to the concrete.
Third step is stamping or embossing a Rubber imprinting pattern (stamp) into the concrete while it is still in its plastic state.
These three procedures provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. It also is longer-lasting than paved stone, and still resembles the look.
