Here is our latest acid staining project we completed around this lovely pool... check out their views. Definitely one of the many reasons why people love living in the Okanagan.
Here is a before picture.
And here is after we stained the surface of this pool deck! It looks brand new and super stylish.
This pool deck was sandblasted then acid stained... it had many years of sealer build up that needed to be stripped and removed before we could stain the surface.
We offer acid staining and eco water-based staining, both appropriate for indoor or outdoor concrete surfaces. Artisan stains can be applied to any horizontal or vertical surface. It's a great way to punch up brand new or boring old concrete, camouflage and disguise cracks or repairs, and a wonderful way to add a designer touch. Our staining gives the result of a natural looking color pattern with mottled shades of the same hue, marbling occurs and each stained piece of concrete is a piece of art. The art of concrete staining is only as good as the artisan. This is a highly technical and specialized process, we advise that you receive test or sample areas before deciding colors, finishes or assessing the skill of the contractor. Due to the high level of unpredictability that concrete naturally exhibits, concrete staining is a tricky project even for the most ambitious DIY'er. Each concrete surface will stain uniquely according to variations in surface density, texture, porosity, and composition.
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. If your concrete surface is already experiencing a surface failure or what we call 'SPALLING' (pitting, flaking, cracking, crumbling surface, etc) it's always best to clean up the concrete and apply a waterproofing agent to eliminate further surface deterioration or water damage.
The first step to any exterior concrete surface treatment is to properly clean and prepare the surface. Usually high pressure power washing does the trick, but in some instances it's necessary to use more extreme measures. Every project is different - it's best to call us for an onsite consultation so we can make accurate recommendations, specific to your situation.
