Acid Stain your Concrete Block Retaining Wall - article by concrete staining & sealing specialists at MODE CONCRETE in Kelowna BC

Punch some style into your boring concrete, by staining it!

A concrete retaining wall is an important, functional element in any outdoor living space, especially on your driveway or in your backyard.  Concrete left unfinished however, can be plain, boring and totally yawn worthy.  At the very least, you should seal your concrete to protect it from the elements and give it a little luster.  If your concrete surface needs more style consider staining your concrete.  An experienced concrete staining specialist will have a multitude of stains, colors and finishes to choose from.

After the stain has been applied, we always recommend sealing your concrete to further protect and enhance the concrete's appearance of the stained finish.  MODE CONCRETE can also apply a wide range of concrete sealers... simply alone, or on top of any concrete stain.  Concrete surfaces like walls, driveways, patios, sidewalks, floors, pool decks, garage floors all require sealers to protect them from damage, wear/tear and the natural environmental factors the surface is exposed to.  By properly maintaining and protecting your concrete, you will add years of life to your concrete surface.
