Whether you’re pouring a driveway, updating your entryway, or finally finishing that basement, there are so many attractive, functional coatings for concrete floors. At Coatings Hub NorCal, we carry a full range of colorful stains and concrete overlays. Learn more about the differences between these two popular options and how they can elevate your next flooring project.
When To Choose A Concrete Stain
If you are interested in a long-lasting, UV-resistant surface that will enhance the appearance of your concrete floor, then you’ll want to explore the versatility of concrete stains. Aside from colors ranging from subtle, variegated neutrals to modern, industrial grays, you can use different application techniques to mimic marble-like finishes, natural stone, or the warmth of wood.
- Long-lasting colors will not fade, peel, or chip.
- Choose from a wide variety of tones.
- Add permanent character to your floors that paint cannot.
- Mimic the feel of wood, marble, or tile at a fraction of the cost.
- Increase the durability of your floors, making them water and UV-resistant.
When To Choose A Concrete Overlay
Renovating or upgrading existing floors? Concrete overlays can mask minor imperfections that may exist in your current cement flooring. There are some defects that a decorative stained simply will not hide, such as hairline cracks and discoloration.
Create the look of flagstone, cobblestone, slate, brick, tile, natural stone, and even wood plank. Or make a statement with stencils.
- Use a thick overlay before you stain, to mimic the texture of tile, slate, brick, and natural stone.
- Use a spray overlay with stencils.
- Create a faux tile look using concrete overlays.
- Use a thicker overlay to level out minor dips in the floor.
