Though everybody has heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” at least once, the simple reality of things for a business or homeowner is that looks do matter. For example, the exterior aesthetic of a business location says a lot, and an inventive and bright look shows customers that a business owner is willing to go above and beyond in the name of the extraordinary. This gives potential customers a reason to think twice and actually remember a business. And one great way to get the point across is by getting creative with concrete staining and etching.

When most people think “Concrete”, they think of a rough chunk of boring grey material. Concrete etching and staining challenges and changes that perception. The creations that can be made by using acid etching techniques and saws to create patterns are so exquisite that you would never guess the material was concrete!

Rich colors and beautiful patterns are combined to create formal and elegant marble-like looks or bold and artistic shapes and patterns. The finished work is topped with a sealant that provides protection and your choice of shine. What better way to get customers to remember your logo than to have it brilliantly etched into the sidewalk in front of your shop? Or check out the Photo Gallery for beautiful examples of decorative concrete floors.

The textures that can be created with concrete staining and etching are limited only to the imagination of the creator and the wide array of techniques can bring out that extra bit of “Wow!” in any home or business!
