Concrete Stain- Non Acid
I am looking to add staining to my lineup. I do mostly brick paver cleaning and sealing as well as some concrete clean/seal. Most of my work is residential concrete patios and driveway poured with a broom finish.
I went through a few different acid staining courses and it seems like that looks a lot better on smooth finished concrete than on broomed patios.
I have been looking at some of the transparent water based stains like from butterfield colors- elements I think theirs is called as well as colorcrete exterior from CCC-USA.
With tht water based I am looking for a more consistant color, something closer to actual colored concrete. I know there will be a bit of a marbelized effect with the transparent stains but it seems like that is more along the lines of what I am looking for. Would you agree water based transparent stains would be better suited for this?
Any feedback or thoughts on these types of products would be greatly appreciated. Also, I know what my costs and what my profit will need ot be but their is nobody local who offers this service. Just comapnys that acid stain interior concrete. What is the going rate in your area for applying these water based stains?
Thanks in advance for your replys!
