Different Coloring Techniques
In order to achieve the desired concrete pool deck color, various coloring techniques may be utilized:
Chemical or Acid Stains
Chemical or acid stains are affordable yet versatile coloring techniques for both existing and new concrete pool decks. To add bolder accents or decorative touches, these stains can also be applied manually.
Acid stains, when mixed with concrete, undergo chemical reactions that create natural color shades.
Exterior concrete decks can fade over time due to weather or sun exposure. A great way to enhance their appearance and offer them long-lasting protection from damage is using integral color mixes.
This coloring technique is also useful to create a backdrop for antiquing or contrasting accents.
Water-based pigments and acrylic polymers penetrate into concrete and result in permanent, long-lasting color. This coloring technique offers a much wider spectrum of shades and many colors to choose from.
