How To Restore Water Stained Concrete

How To Restore Water Stained Concrete

Why spend the cost of tearing out old stained concrete, when you can just restore it? Restoring concrete is easy with NewLook’s line of EnduraStain concrete stains.

Before

Before – old, dingy and in need of an update.

 

This small concrete patio looks as though it had some water-staining issues and because of this, discoloration. So by using NewLook stains Kevin Brown was able to correct the varying concrete and make it more uniform.

 

After prepping the concrete Kevin used Endura Solid Color Stain in Sierra (344) as the base to improve the concrete surface and cover the discoloration.  He then highlighted the surface by brooming over the surface again with Endura Translucent Enhancer and Smartcolor in Dark Brown (272) and sealed it with SmartSeal WB in Matte.

After – The Sierra and Dark Brown are a great contrast for the space.

NewLook stains are a great alternative to expensive acid staining or other expensive concrete staining products.
