This stained concrete project is located in Decatur, Indiana. The project included removing a clear sealer from the floor, using a reactive stain to achieve the color and then a durable urethane topcoat for protection and ease of maintenance.

The building that the project was completed in is a pool house that includes a full kitchen and bathroom. This building is mostly used for entertaining and for hanging out in the summer months. Since this building is being used by people who are also swimming safety was our number one concern. Bare concrete, just like any other hard surface material, can be slippery when wet. To make sure the floor would be slip-resistant we installed a sealer that has a grip additive for maximum safety.

Before we even started thinking about sealing the project we had some other work to be done that included the removal of sealer from the concrete surface. Many times when concrete is covered with a paint, glue or sealer the only option to remove these materials would be by mechanical means such as grinding or chemically with harsh solvents. We are fortunate enough to have a solution that requires neither of these. By using a locally produced organic solvent we can remove paint and sealers from concrete with no fumes, no harsh chemicals, and no dust. This product emulsified the current sealer for easy vacuuming. Once this was removed we had a clean concrete surface to perform our staining process. The color we chose was a rich Avocado reactive stain. This stain reacts with the composition of the concrete to create permanent variegated colors that are actually in the top layer of the concrete floor. These colors move throughout the slab and create highs and low tones of the color.

I really like how this project came out. The colors are fun and bright which create a great environment to entertain for this summer and many more to come.
