We are using it to tone down a red poured patio. It’s great!

    • New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days, and may be influenced by wet or dry weather
    • Remove dirt and debris using a Concrete Cleaner & Degreaser Concentrate
    • Clean floor thoroughly and make sure it is completely rinsed and dry before staining
    • Protect surrounding areas from backplash with drop cloths or firm cardboard
    • When working with multiple colors, do not apply tape to surfaces recently coated with stain or sealer, as adhesive may remove the coatings


    • Shake Portico Paver Stain bottle thoroughly
    • Pour the stain directly into a pump sprayer
    • Continue to shake periodically during application to ensure particulate does not settle at the bottom
    • Tip: Practice spraying on a piece of cardboard or newspaper
    • Important: Test the color first, using a small corner area of your concrete paver floor
    • Tip: Wear chemical resistant Spiked Shoes to prevent foot prints
    • Apply Portico Paver Stain using a random, straight or circular motion until a "wet" appearance is achieved
    •  Allow 6 - 8 hours to dry before applying additional coats


    • To complete the staining, a protective finish must be applied. Use a premium, easy-to-use sealer such as Direct Colors Acrylic Concrete Sealers
    • Allow stain to dry 8 hours before applying  a high quiality solvent-based acrylic concrete sealer

    What is the recommended use for Portico stain?

    Portico was designed for those more porous concrete surfaces and concrete pavers.

    What should I use to apply portico stain?

    The best application tool is a pump-up fence and deck sprayer. When using a sprayer to apply portico stain, be sure to remove any filters, these can normally be found at the top or bottom of the straw in the canister. By not removing the filter, this will cause you to only spray the clear liquid onto your surface, the filter will hold back the pigment from being sprayed out. For closer applications or desired look, a sponge or foam brush can also be used.

    When can I apply sealer over my portico stain?

    Allow the portico stain to dry and off-gas for 6-8 hours on exterior surfaces before applying our acrylic solvent-based sealer


    Can I use more than one color, and can they be mixed?

    No, do not mix the portico stains, but multiple colors can be layered to achieve the desired look. Typically, we recommend starting with your lightest color and build up to the darker colors.

    What is the difference in Antiquing stain and Portico stain?

    These two products are very similar. Antiquing stain was designed for stamped and textured concrete, and Portico stain was designed for flatter, more porous surfaces such as pavers.
