Installing Stained Concrete Floors in Boston

It is all too easy to picture plain and unexciting gray or light brown when imagining a concrete floor. Chances are you’ve seen one in a basement or garage- it may even be your floor right now. However, just because concrete is naturally that drab color doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. Stained concrete floors in Boston can be the perfect option for any area like a garage, basement, or workshop – somewhere that needs a hard durable floor but that you would still like to have some personality.

Using a stained concrete floor in a Boston home will give you a rich color that won’t fade, wear, or wash away. Stains actually react with components of the concrete, so the color becomes part of the slab itself. This means that they can even be used on floors that were not just installed, so if you do have a concrete floor currently, you can use a concrete stain on that. However, it is often recommended to get a repair overlay on older concrete floors before staining them, as staining older floors could actually highlight imperfections. Be aware of any flaws in a floor before you have it stained.

Your stained concrete floors in Boston will also be perfectly unique. Because the stain reacts with the slab, each floor will turn out differently, even if treated with the same color stain. You cannot achieve a lot of different colors with stains – they are mostly earthy tones like browns, oranges, and greens – but variation still exists in a subtler form. The way the stain interacts with each floor is different. Also, if it is being used as a floor treatment, this is rarely a problem, as more neutral colors are preferred for flooring anyway, generally speaking.
