Benefits of Dyed vs Acid Stain Surface of a Slab of Concrete
A dyed concrete finish has some benefits over an acid stain finish. Acid reacts with the concrete where dye does not. The dye process provides the surface with a more predictable finish color that will intensify over time. Acid will react with the slab and the final color can be a little unpredictable. Concrete dyes can be used to finish exposed polished slab floors.
Dyed concrete finishes are ideal for commercial floor spaces and offers a wide variety of custom options for your surface. There are more standard color options and colors can be blended to create more possibilities. Concrete dye formula is a combination of a color morsels and either water or a solvent based liquid. Dyes will perforate the concrete providing a stable, long lasting color.
A dyed finish can be used on standard concrete floors and can be applied on top of each other to build and achieve a multiple color look on your surface, if so desired. Dyes, along with the tools of our finishing process, will provide you with a superior finish to your flooring.

How to Finish Concrete: Finishing Concrete is an Expert Job
We go the extra mile to ensure that our clients are completely satisfied with any finishing of a concrete surface project that we complete. This process is not a do-it-yourself (diy) project and our team has extensive experience with surface finishing. Using a darby, trowel, float and other tools and items of the trade, we work to prepare the surface with mortar for its final finish. Soon after the concrete is prepped, the slab is ready for polishing or putting a finish on a surface that is done in multiple steps to ensure a great look that will remain durable.
When the concrete cures, it creates a soft layer on the concrete which needs to be ground off the top of the slab. If not ground off the surface properly, the concrete polish will not last. Once the concrete surface is cleaned up (1st grit is always the most important), it is then a series of finer and finer grits to create the polished concrete.
Another part of the finish process is the chemical hardeners, which will make the concrete dust-proof and also chemical densify the concrete. This leads us to the most important part of the process – the mechanical densifying of the concrete with diamond abrasions.
The result is a low-maintenance, cost saving floor slab that our clients love.
