If you have a concrete surface on your property, such as a driveway, patio, or pool deck, that you want to reinvent, concrete staining is the most cost-effective
way to transform the surface into something you’ll love to look at.
Staining is an economical and highly versatile way to upgrade the look of both new and existing concrete patios. With stains, you can add subtle hints of color, bolder design accents, and even custom designs. What’s more, because concrete stains penetrate deep into the concrete surface, they produce fade-resistant, permanent color. Unlike with a paint or coating, the color won’t flake off or peel away.
Two types of staining
Texas Premier Coat Resurfacing approaches staining in two different ways.
The first is as a standalone service. Typically, customers will come to us asking what constitutes an easy way to make a major change in their driveway or other concrete surface. Our answer is always that if you’re not ready to make the commitment to a full resurfacing or overlay project, concrete staining is the next best option.
For example, many people get concrete or composite overlays on their property because the existing surface is old and worn down. If you have a newer surface but you just don’t like the standard color of bare concrete, staining is a great solution. Because concrete tends to be porous, the stains we use are infused into the surface, creating a permanent color that’s resistant to fading over time. Some stains are also sealants, which help protect the surface in question.
The second way we approach concrete staining is in conjunction with a concrete overlay. Our craftsmen hand-carve and texturize a concrete overlay to resemble tile or rock. In some overlay materials, the color is actually mixed in with the overlay, but we prefer to stain the concrete once the overlay material dries.
