Stained Garage Concrete Floor Turned Man Cave

Acid Stained Concrete Garage Floor

Acid stained concrete floors are an inexpensive flooring option that give your garage floor character as well as color to create the perfect man cave.

Acid stains do not chip or peel off and can be customized to create interesting designs, color and gloss finish. Due to the transparency nature of these reactive stains,   they will not cover concrete imperfections. However,  color combinations and patterns can actually complement the original imperfections and make them an intricate part of the final design.
