Revitalize Your Garage with Stained Concrete

For too many years grey, ugly and drab concrete floors have been the norm in garages across America. Many people may wonder why they should bother caring about a room that is barely used, or takes a beating from being the primary work space. The answer boils down to one word: character.

Concrete Floor Stained using Multi-Colors with Design
Concrete staining does more than simply add color. Rather than produce a solid, opaque effect like paint or colored coatings, stains permeate the concrete to infuse it with rich, deep, translucent tones.  For a fraction of the cost of placing tile or stone on concrete floor, you can attain the same affect by staining it. 

Professionally staining your floor will give your garage character and appeal while still maintaining the durability that concrete supplies. By transforming your garage floor you can expand your living environment. Your garage will now have options. It can become a room, an impressive looking work space, or that long-awaited weekend "man-cave" to hang out in, or watch the game with friends.

Also keep in mind, scoring and grout can also be applied to give your concrete floor designs or make it appear as a tiled or stone surface. A garage isn't the only place to give concrete a facelift. Driveways and patios will also look beautiful and keep their durability.

Stained Concrete Driveway With Scoring
Stone Medic specializes in this growing and unique trend. No two concrete floors, walls, or countertops will look alike due to factors such as the composition and age of the concrete, surface porosity, texture, and environmental conditions. Several stain manufacturers use adjectives such as "antiqued," "variegated," or "mottled" to describe the distinctive look.  It's this variability, rather than uniformity, that gives stained concrete its broad appeal and permits an infinite array of special effects.
