What is stained concrete?
Stained concrete refers to a concrete floor (either new or old) that has been “stained” with special pigment color and sealer to give it a unique colored look.
Concrete stain comes in various color and finish options, including a clear top coat stain that simply enhances the natural grey color of the concrete.
Concrete stains also come with various different looks and finishes, such as acid stain, helping to evoke a range of different aesthetics for different purposes.
For example, a pool deck might benefit from a transparent terra cotta stain if you’re going for that Spanish Colonial vibe, while basement cement might look better with acid staining.
Concrete floors with acid stains do look really striking!
Whatever type you’re using, the semi-transparent color stain allows the natural texture of the concrete to shine through, so it’s a great way to enhance the look of your existing concrete and hide minor blemishes, especially if your floor is in good condition already.
These transparent color stains can really make your floor a focal point!
Concrete Staining for Homes
Whether you want a concrete acid stain driveway, a transparent concrete stain basement, or a terra cotta patio, we have various products and colors to penetrate your cement and give your surface the finish that it deserves. We work with both outdoor and interior surfaces, penetrating any old or new concrete you desire.
Concrete stains for homes are becoming more popular in recent years, so homeowners have additional design options for their exterior and interior surfaces aside from the usual epoxy paints.
Our concrete stain colors are slick and stylish, giving your interior or exterior concrete the perfect finish that just can’t be achieved with epoxy paints.
Oh, and these concrete stain surfaces are really durable too!
A concrete stain still uses the concrete as its main surface material, so your floor is still really durable and tough whether you use a water-based stain or concrete acid stains.
The right concrete stain colors can add a ton of resale value to your home if they complement your design – our team really recommends checking out these various styles.

Cons of Concrete Stain
When you stain concrete, there are many upsides, but inevitably there are also multiple downsides to consider when staining concrete too.
While there are not so many points to consider here, here are some tips on the downsides of staining that might help you to make the right decision on whether your concrete needs stain, paint, sealer, or anything else.
Here are some of the cons of concrete stain:
- It’s purely aesthetic – it doesn’t enhance the concrete’s durability
- Using concrete stain colors can highlight some chips & imperfections in old concrete
- You need professional help – this is not an easy DIY project
- Stain will dry very quickly, so it needs to be right the first time
- You may need to apply concrete sealers and treatments before/after application
- Epoxy paint may be more suitable for old concrete surfaces
- The main thing to remember about concrete stain is that it doesn’t change the properties of the concrete itself – it just stains the minerals with pigment of a semi-transparent color. If your pool deck or driveway is in poor condition to begin with, staining it with color isn’t going to make it any stronger.
Also, if your surface is in need of concrete sealer or a re-pour due to excessive chips, imperfections, and water damage, then stain color may actually make the area appear worse by highlighting the blemishes and drawing attention to them. Concrete stain colors can mask OR amplify flaws in used concrete depending on the scenario.
Ideally, new concrete is the best application surface!
Whether you’re working with old or new concrete, a DIY coloring project is not usually a good idea. Concrete staining can go wrong very quickly, even if you apply the color correctly following a step by step guide. This simple-yet-challenging project requires a professional team like Infinity Epoxy that has been staining surfaces for years!
Concrete Stain FAQs
What is the best stain for concrete?
There is no “best stain for concrete” – it all depends on the finish you’re going for and how the area is used.
For example, an outdoor patio area would require a very different stain color from an inside basement floor. The area, its use, and the homeowner’s personal taste all need to come into consideration.
Multiple concrete stain colors are available, ranging from muted browns and greys to clear coats and bright aquamarines.
These semi-transparent colors and sealers come in various different forms, including:
- Water-based concrete stain colors
- Acid stain concrete colors
- Polyurethane sealer mixes
- Oil-based paints
and much more!
Can old concrete be stained?
Old concrete can be stained, but you need to make sure that the surface is free from residue of oil, paint, glue, grease, dirt, debris, and anything else that can stop the color from penetrating the surface properly.
The better the condition of the old concrete, the more likely that it can be stained.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that if your old concrete has unsightly cracks, chips, and blemishes, you may need to repair these by using concrete sealer or other similar products before the staining process begins.
Professional teams can also ground and polish your surface to prepare it for color if necessary.
Concrete stain can both hide blemishes and highlight them depending on the coloring and how you apply it, so be careful to use sensible colors. The IEF team can help with this if you’re having trouble deciding how best to mask these imperfections.
How long does concrete stain last?
Once concrete stain pigment has bonded to the minerals in your concrete surface, the effects are basically permanent.
After a well-applied stain, concrete will stay that color for up to 100 years or more, basically surviving for the lifetime of the concrete itself.
This is great if you’re very confident about your color choice, but if you plan on changing your color scheme in a few years, you’ll probably have to apply concrete coatings (like epoxy paint) that can cover the previous stain color.
