Staining Pole Barn Floors
Pole barns use a post-frame construction where the framing network is driven directly into the ground or secured above it. In a traditional structure, a work crew excavates and lays a deep concrete foundation on which the structure is then set—not doing so immediately saves 10-15% of the total building cost.
Furthermore, poles support the roof, as opposed to traditional stud-wall design in which the walls support a roof. One of the main design advantages here is that you don’t have any load-bearing walls, thus it is easy to create an open and adaptable design.

How Much Does a Pole Barn Concrete Floor cost?
Well, we can’t say as it depends on how big a project it is and what your specific goals are. But we can tell you that the easiest flooring and countertop material you can build with is concrete. And with Direct Colors’ project cost calculators, your flooring costs will always stay on budget!
Plus, as we constantly hear from our clients, decorative concrete brings outdoor living spaces to life without breaking the bank. The Palmer family of Kalispell, Montana built a pole barn and used our Antiquing Stain to add rich color to their patio space.
What if I already have concrete floors?
No problem! Direct Colors’ concrete Antiquing Stain is specially formulated to work with previously poured, stamped, stained, and even sealed concrete. It makes refinishing and adding color to old dull concrete a snap!

What If I'm Pouring a Concrete Floor in pole barn?
Consider adding concrete pigment during the mixing phase to give your concrete even coloring throughout. Then, simply seal and you’re finished!
For those who want an even more unique look, apply acid stain on the surface of integrally colored concrete. The base color remains in the background, while the acid stain adds new designs and color across the concrete surface.
