After a floor has been repaired, grinded, and coated, it can be dyed or stained. This is where immense creativity and design elements can really start to show beyond the material texture and imbedded paint chips or flecks. A typical concrete floor can blossom from a drab grey into a breathtaking tone of blue, red, green, or any other shade you desire.
Your Dye and Stain Options
Like a house or room can be brightened with a fresh coat of paint, a floor can likewise pop with a fresh new color from an appropriately applied dye or stain. Color brings out the breadth of beauty and possibilities in the chosen material.
ACT Restoration integrates the following four brands of dye and stain into our clients’ flooring projects.
Fresco stains are non-hydrochloric acid-based and friendly to the environment. They create an antiqued appearance as if time had naturally worn the concrete. These colors are soft in hue and permanent. The palette ranges from the natural clay, amber, and hickory stains to the more lush caribbean and aspen stains.
Patios, grand halls, lobbies; add luster to commercial and residential spaces with Tinte D’Acqua water-based floor stains. These colors deeply penetrate cementitious surfaces for a brilliant new look. Every one of the 28 standard color stains resists chemicals and extends the life of your concrete floors.
AmeriPolish is a leader in concrete chemical technology. Founded in 2005, the company quickly revolutionized the floor polishing process with solvent-based dyes that penetrate concrete while still being earth-friendly. Each dye is researched and field-tested to not only maximize the beauty of concrete floors but also strengthen and protect them.
The colors of Vivid Dye are rich and diverse. The color palette uses premium, micronized pigments that can be combined to form an unlimited number of color variations, intensities, and designs. The translucency highlights the natural granular patterns within the concrete.
Solid Color Stain

Restore and revitalize your stamped concrete with TiqueWash™, an advanced antiquing colorant used to easily create a natural-looking, multi-toned finish on textured concrete surfaces. TiqueWash is a translucent color wash that, once applied, runs off high spots and settles in the low spots of textured concrete.
