The Lithia Ford car dealership in Boise, Idaho has 11,000 sq. ft. of stamped, colored concrete that had very likely been acid stained in the past. The owners weren’t happy with the appearance of their car lot and appearances are important for any car dealership. After much discussion with Direct Colors technicians, Kenny with PSI Pressure Washing selected Direct Colors Liquid Colored Antique Concrete Stain in Charcoal to bring out the character of the stamp and give the concrete some color variation. Liquid Colored Antique Concrete Stain is very easy to apply and can be used on previously sealed concrete where acid stain cannot. Kenny carefully power-washed the concrete and sprayed two coats of antiquing to a clean, dry surface. He later rolled on two coats of our solvent-based, concrete sealer

“Inspection early this year shows the sealer still intact and the color looks as vibrant as when it was applied. We will be doing a thin spray coat of the same sealer late this summer to maintain the surface. Thank you again for the great products and more importantly the excellent customer support from Direct Colors.” Kenny B. , PSI Pressure Washing, Idaho
