Painting Commercial Concrete Floors

Commercial Concrete Floors in San FranciscoWhen it comes to changing the color of commercial concrete in San Francisco, you are presented with a few options. A multitude of different effects may be achieved, allowing you to enjoy creative and artistic colored concrete designs for your business. Keep reading if you would like to learn more about the process of painting commercial concrete floors.


Although changing the color of a concrete floor is often referred to as painting, it actually does not involve the use of traditional paint. The color of the commercial concrete surface is actually changed with dyes, stains, and sealers that will breathe rather than peel, allowing your concrete contractor to provide you with a beautiful floor that will retain its splendor. Concrete dyes are used because of their ability to fully saturate the concrete; they are made up of small particles that have no trouble penetrating through the porous cement surfaces and thus are able to influence the color without chemically reacting with the concrete. Your concrete contractor may use solvent-based dies to achieve bold, solid colors or water-based dyes come in handy when you want a design with more texture and variety in hue. The latter option can produce a result similar to that of a chemical stain.


Concrete companies can also use stains to “paint” your commercial concrete floors. These permanent stains combine pigments and polymers in order to provide your concrete with a versatile range of colors and styles. Water-based concrete stains are available in a wide array of colors, shades, and tints. They can also be applied at different levels of translucence, allowing for an additional creativity. In contrast to water-based stains, the appearance of acid-based stains will vary greatly depending on the surface to which it is applied, and these stains are available in fewer options.


If you are looking to spruce up your commercial concrete in a more subtle fashion, tinted sealers may be ideal for your needs. This option is affordable and efficient, and it can help to influence the hue that is displayed by previously colored concrete.
