Stamped concrete is a beautiful way to get the look of stone, brick, or even tile flooring. Decorative concrete is available in a wide range of looks and can completely change your patio or outdoor flooring area. But if your stamped concrete is looking a little dull, it may be time to consider revitalizing it.


At ACT Restoration in Brooklyn Park, we offer several options of concrete floor stain for stamped and decorative concrete floors. One of the best looks for stamped concrete is NewLook’s TiqueWash, an antiquing stain that combines stunning, bold color and old-world style. Here’s what you need to know about using TiqueWash to revitalize your decorative concrete floor.


What is TiqueWash?

TiqueWash is an antiquing colorant concrete wash with a translucent appearance. It’s a water-based stain that can be applied and dry quickly, which means relatively little downtime for your floor.


TiqueWash uses ultrafine polymers to create powerful adhesion and penetrate the surface of a concrete floor. It can be used on stamped or textured concrete to create a beautiful multi-tone finish that looks natural and elegant. It’s available in sixteen stunning colors.


Here are a few of NewLook’s most popular TiqueWash stain looks:


●        Black and charcoal pigments like Sycamore, Dark Gray, and Medium Gray

●        Icy neutrals like Arctic Chill and Light Gray

●        Bold colors including Terra Cotta, Sea Foam, and Aged Coral


Applying TiqueWash

When applied evenly over the surface of your stamped concrete, TiqueWash runs down from the higher spots to settle in the low spots on the concrete’s surface. That causes it to appear darker in the lower spots and lighter in the high spots, giving the concrete a two-toned and beautifully textured appearance. For a darker look, we can add multiple coats of TiqueWash to the concrete.
