Concrete staining is a means to alter the appearance of existing concrete by creating new textures, color or design. A translucent concrete stain helps add an ascetically decorative touch to otherwise drab concrete. In contrast everyone loves the natural look and feel of wood and semi-transparent stains have long been favored in their use. This is because the natural look and feel of the grain remains easily visible. With Quikrete Translucent Concrete Stains you are achieving this same “ rule of effect “.
