Excellent Stain – I’ve used a number of different acid based concrete stains- Schofield, Kemiko, etc- and this performs just as well. Color and penetration were excellent. Would definitely recommend.
This is by far the best stain I’ve used. The walnut color is gorgeous! Excellent customer service as well.
Fountains and a concrete pad for over two years with beautiful and lasting results – I’ve used this stain on big concrete planters, fountains and a concrete pad for over two years with beautiful and lasting results. Easy to use and gives professional look.
Great Product, used it on an Outdoor Patio – Came out great. Product leaves a nice color. Has been raining for 3 days straight since I stained and have not had a chance to seal it yet but seems to be holding color perfectly.
Do take note, I made my concrete have a “rock” design to it by adding features that made it look like stone, but also allowed the stain to sit there as it dried. Awesome for effect, you just have to be sure to scrub out any residue in any low areas as it will pool and shop-vac it out right away or it will just settle again.
Great Product – Worked great and was easy to use. Applied to newer concrete-3 months old. I sprayed 2 coats but it colored so beautifully with the first application that I could have stopped after the first coat. Shipped quickly and was well packaged. There was a little spillage from the container, but It was sealed into a plastic bag so it wasn’t a problem. I will be purchasing this product again for our outside patio.
Perfect Outdoor Chessboard – Deep rich brown created from cheap gray 16″ square concrete pavers. I used this and the green one to make a chess board in my back yard. Oddly enough, large square pavers come in gray only—or a red with a brick pattern. So I couldn’t find 2 colors with the same plain look, and I’m glad I couldn’t because staining the plain gray concrete created a unique look that you would not be able to purchase even through special order. Plain gray concrete looks as cheap as it sounds, but now I’ve got a jade-walnut chessboard that cost me less than $4 per piece to make, including the stain.
Easy to use, and if you use zero water to wet the pavers before applying acid, you get a bubbling, hissing pool of acid, which of course is a bonus.
(wetting the surface first will create a more uniform color and will stretch the amount of coverage).
Great stain, be liberal with application – This product worked very well and I really like the color. It did turn out a little more on the tan side in lighter applied areas, but ended up overall looking very nice.
As a first time acid stainer I learned a number of things. Prep is very important, take the time to do it right. Most importantly, is to make sure you are getting complete coverage when you are spraying the acid. You will note that there is some foaming immediately on contact which goes away quickly. This appears to be the time when the majority of the color transition takes place. As you brush in the liquid it still colors the concrete however not as deep as where the direct spray contact is made. I needed to be more generous with the initial spraying to make sure I had complete coverage. As a result, the appearance is a bit mottled and splotchy. Even with the incomplete coverage the floor looks significantly better than the bare concrete. Fortunately, I picked a room I built in my pole barn for my first try, but will be doing my basement and porch shortly.
The floor turned out great! It took two coats of the acid stain to get the color we wanted and we love it. It’s hard to judge the true color of it until after it dries and you put a clear coat over it. The prep work is the hardest part but once you have a clean floor the application is easy. We used it in our basement pool-room and it took about 3 gallons to cover approx. 700 sq ft.
Bought 2 gallons, only needed 1. I’m sure if I used the 2nd that it would have gotten darker but being that it’s outside in the sun, I didn’t want it darker. I LOVE the finished effect. Was scared when after I applied it, it turned neon orange, but after awhile it changed. PS if you do it in the sun it will turn quick!!!!!
Great customer service by the actual manufacturer of the acid (not the seller). I called and spoke with the same person twice who gave me some great tips and ideas on how to get the best results. Be careful on how log you leave the stain on. We did a few test areas and when left on overnight the concreted turned almost black. At 1 hour my concrete reached a deep brown color. Not sure why but I’m happy with remote. Onto the sealer 2000!
Concrete Coatings products will always have a place in my store. They have always been a pleasure to work with, from order placement to product delivery. They are great folks.
I want to thank you for your help in getting the Concrete Coatings line set up in my store and in the other Jones Paint and Glass locations. I have worked with a few contractors over the last six months that have completed six fairly large jobs. In every instance the product has performed better than expected and the customer has been extremely pleased with the results.
The support we have been given by you and your organization, both in bringing the products we need to our locations and in training and technical support on each of the jobs, has been greatly appreciated. The addition of Concrete Coatings to my store’s line-up has helped me provide additional products and support to my contractors in the concrete coating industry. And the costing allows us to be more than competitive with the local providers.
Thanks again for all of your help and I look forward to increasing our market share of the concrete stains and coatings business.
Jones Paint and Glass, Vernal, UT is proud to be affiliated with Concrete Coatings. They have filled the void that we had in our offerings when It comes to decorative concrete solutions. Our customers have loved the products that Concrete Coatings has to offer. The customers always come back bragging about how good their concrete looks after applying products from Concrete Coatings. Concrete Coatings Is a great partner to work with. They are friendly, very knowledgeable, and always willing to help. Not only do they help us with our questions, but they are more than willing to talk to our customers and help them step by step, if needed, to make sure that the customer is satisfied with their products.
Adding Concrete Coatings products to our offerings has helped increase our cash flow. It has been great to have another product that doesn’t sit on the shelf for very long. We put up some 2 ft by 2ft samples on our wall, and the samples pretty much sell the product.
I would recommend bringing in Concrete Coatings products to any paint dealer out there, unless of course they are my competitor next door.
Concrete Coatings quickly proved to us that they were different from any other manufacturer that we have ever worked with. Once we began stocking some of their product lines, they invited us to their manufacturing facility in Northern Utah. Spanning a week’s time, Concrete Coatings Inc. held multiple two day sessions to train our sales force. We have 6 locations and their staff took the time to teach and give hands on instruction to our entire sales force. Since then Concrete Coatings continues to support us. They call each of our locations regularly to offer sales & technical support. They also offer to restock literature for us. No other company we have worked with has taken the initiative to call us and offer support so regularly.
We started doing business with Concrete Coatings Inc around the summer of 2010. After meeting their crew at a Decorative Concrete Convention in Phoenix Arizona, we decided to place a stock order and attend advanced training classes (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!) to help generate some interest on the East Coast. Since then Concrete Coatings, Inc. has helped in ways we NEVER expected. Filtering potential and existing customers, advanced knowledge of product, and not to mention an all around eagerness to please.
Concrete Coatings Inc has opened our eyes to an entirely new marketplace we never knew existed. Our Company’s mainstay is wholesaling Builder’s hardware; door locks and accessories, fasteners, paint sundries, work wear, tools, and now Decorative Concrete. As a wholesaler we don’t deal with the general public or contractors too often. Since taking on Concrete Coatings, Inc. and holding training classes here at my facility in Massachusetts, we have seen our business take on a new identity and start to generate profit in the first year and on.
It has been a truly great relationship and we expected fully to grow together for years to come.
Using acrylic floor wax to restore the luster of a travertine tile floor. DuraWax™ can be applied over any sealed concrete or tile surface, and will prolong the sealer life.
I am the project manager at a high end residential landscape design, build company. We do all of our installations in house; utilities, irrigation, masonry walls and floors, and plantings. We never thought about using concrete staining and resurfacing in our designs because we always had to find a contractor to do the work. We lost a lot of opportunities to renovate landscapes because we would normally cover outdated concrete with expensive stone veneers. In July 2010, one of my employees and I attended a basic Concrete Coatings training class in Atlanta, because we were shocked about the price we were given for a large, new acid stain installation. We had never done any of this kind of work before, but knew we were capable with the right training. The training class was very informative and hands on, which makes the steps easier to repeat at home because we had actually done them ourselves in the class.
Five weeks after our class we stained over 3,000 ft² of concrete, the main focal point of a $200,000 job, as our first try at acid staining. I called our instructor, Brian, at least two times a day while we did our first install. He was always happy to answer my questions, and even remembered my name. With Concrete Coatings continued support our first staining job was a complete success.
In the last seven months we have installed four other concrete staining jobs, and broadened the Concrete Coatings materials we have used. It seems they have a specialized product for just about any application, and are happy to discuss the pros and cons of their products in client specific applications.
Our ability to install Concrete Coatings products has greatly increased the variety we can offer our clients, and opened the door to new business opportunities.”
Talk about a game changer! I have used Concrete Coatings acid stains for the last two years in my statuary and concrete ornament business and have been very pleased with the quality of the products. But when Northwest Regional Sales Manager, Mike Sessions dropped in to see me two months ago my studio’s future changed forever. First thing he did was get me in the Concrete Coatings factory training which was absolutely fantastic. Brian Anderson was an exceptional trainer. I walked away from that training an expert. The Granite Look system has given me a powerful new tool in finishing my statuary, fountains and benches and Super Seal 2000 is an exceptional finish. Mike Sessions’ ongoing support and encouragement has allowed me to push the envelope of creative development and the doors that have been opened for me in new business opportunities with micro toppings will forever impact my new and developing bottom line. This company cares about my business and its success and I know they can help yours as well. Top Quality products, genuine people, and a commitment to success make these guys someone to do business with.
Concrete Coatings is wonderful to work with, they have a knowledgeable staff, stock on hand, and are always having great sales!! This company is a leader in the decorative concrete industry.
We have been with Concrete Coatings Inc. since they began offering their products to distributors in 2007. Even though Concrete Coatings Inc. had sold to contractors across the country directly for many years previous, like with any new vendor, we didn’t know what to expect.
Concrete Coatings quickly proved to us that they were different from any other manufacturer that we have ever worked with. Once we began stocking some of their
product lines, they invited us to their manufacturing facility in Northern Utah. Spanning a week’s time, Concrete Coatings Inc. held multiple two day sessions to train our sales force. We have 6 locations and their staff took the time to teach and give hands on instruction to
our entire sales force.
Since then Concrete Coatings continues to support us. They call each of our locations regularly to offer sales & technical support. They also offer to restock literature for us. No other company we have worked with has taken the initiative to call us and offer support so regularly.
Recently, we teamed up with Concrete Coatings Inc. to help a representative meet the spec requirement for an acid application at a middle school. Concrete Coatings went with me regularly to work with the contractor and architect on the job. The contractor later said that no other company would have tried to match an acid stain color for us like Concrete Coatings Inc. has.
Due in large part to Concrete Coatings Inc willingness to work with us on this project, we have earned the business on this and five other schools being built in the area. We are grateful for our partnership with Concrete Coatings Inc. They continue to exceed expectations and we look forward to many years of continued business together.
For ten years CCI and I have been in a partnership with CCI being my product supplier. We have grown together mutually supporting one another. CCI has never let me down always furnishing quality products on a timely basis. I credit this support for my growth and success. And really, thank you for your support. I’ve always known who had my back.
We began using CCI materials over 10 years ago because of high quality and competitively priced products. The CCI team is friendly, helpful and will always do what it takes to solve a problem. We are proud of the thousands of beautiful projects that we have completed with CCI products and look forward to many more years with them.
We were a [competitor’s] dealer and switched because the freight from Florida to [the Rocky Mountain region] was killing us.
I was buying through a [competitor’s] distributor. [They] gave people franchises or a town or area. I needed to buy products without this requirement. Concrete Coatings’ prices were 50% cheaper and the people were real. So I won in many ways.
For me, everything is about quality and price point. I have been satisfied with the quality of product I have received from Concrete Coatings, Inc. and it is a much better price point than my current supplier (even at my platinum level pricing). Concrete Coatings has a broader product line which opens up more opportunity in the market.
Very easy to apply with squeegee or trowel. I chose the trowel to control the character and I am glad I did. Sands easily for imperfections. So far….a good product. Time will tell the rest.
I’m giving this product 5 stars even though we had some issues – those I believe we’re user error, so my advice: we applied the first coat on a sunny day and when it cured, there were some areas that had soaked into the concrete and others where it laid on top. I learned later that this is perfectly fine. We went back for the second coat within 24 hours, but about an hour after application Theresa’s a fog warning in our area and the moisture got into the epoxy as it cured turning it a cloudy white. I did have a large market umbrella over a portion of the counter, and the section under the umbrella dried beautifully!! At the suggestion of the manufacturer were going to sand the top coat of epoxy with 80-100 grit using a palm sander until the cloudy white is out, and reapply.
It’s made my floor look almost like water. My concrete was porous so it really took a lot. It’ll take at least 3 coats to fully cover. We dumped and rolled, and brushed the edges. It put little crackle marks into the color (turquoise) and it looks like real turquoise in places. Very cool. The smell is pretty nasty. Shipping was fast.
Expressions-LTD gave me the confidence to start and complete my countertop project. The videos were helpful and informative, which made using the products a breeze! Customer service is excellent – I am a faithful customer now! Thanks!!
Very beautiful stain! I love the way my counters turned out!
I ordered the mission brown color, looking for a good true brown, and was a little worried at initial application as it looked very yellow / orange in color. Just wait!!!! As it reacted to the concrete, it developed its own personality and the result is better than anything I could have hoped for!! Love the color, love the look – we used the sponge application method on the outdoor countertop. Went over with 2 coats. I wouldn’t recommend a third because it gets much darker when you add the sealer.
I have used CCI products over the past couple of years and have had great success and no problems with them customer service are very knowledgeable about and helpful with any ? I had I will recommend to all my family and friends.
It’s been four year since my epoxy garage floor was poured and sealed and it looks as good as new. I’ve worked many times with this company’s employees and have always enjoyed their help and support. The products are great and so are the people.
DIY Basement bar concrete countertop job. Went in looking for a gray and could tell they weren’t just trying to make a buck because they were honest about acid stains not having the ability to get the gray color we were looking for, and pointed me to a few places with water based products. The boss lady changed her mind, we went with a jade color, purchased everything we’d need right there in the store. When the sprayer I bought ran out of aerosol on me, Cory gave me two more bottles, free of charge, since he was the one who suggested I’d be fine with one. Great products, good and honest service. The wife is happy with our beautiful countertops all sealed up perfectly. Thanks guys!
Thank you so much for your hard work and awesome customer service! We love our patio! You really improved our bad situation and we will be thankful for it every time we walk out our back door! Thank you.
Business Opportunities Reviews
My husband and I had researched several business opportunities and discussed which would best fit us and the way of life around us. We first learned of Concrete Coatings Inc on the internet and in the following months came to realize that this could very well be what we’d been looking for. We were pleasantly surprised when we flew to Utah for the classes. Everybody we met was extremely helpful and friendly. Since attending the class in July of this year, we have done several jobs. Everyone who sees the coatings is amazed at the look, feel and durability of the product. It is very user friendly and all of our customers are thrilled with their ‘new’ concrete. We are very excited to be a part of this growing industry and look forward to the opportunities to come!
Having been to Concrete Coatings’ and [a competitor’s] training classes, I can honestly say that choosing Concrete Coatings was the best choice for my business. If you have any doubts, call me. Seriously. I’ll tell you my experience with both.
Concrete Coatings, Inc. products have become an excellent way to increase business with our customers. The concrete trade has always been a large part of our customer base, so it was a perfect fit. Concrete Coatings, Inc. has supported our sales with demonstrations that have given our customers and our staff valuable and practical experience with their products. Thanks to Concrete Coatings, Inc. for helping us diversify our business with superior products and support from their employees.
At the end of the day, everyone wants to know they can make more money. If you sell a 1,000ft² job and you save $0.70/ft², that is $700 free and clear in your pocket. Makes a huge difference by the end of year. If you average 30-35 jobs a year per crew with an average of $500/job increase in profit, you just put $15,000-$20,000 more in your own pocket. Easy math.
As I reflect back after completing my sixth season of installing acrylic overlays on concrete and brick in the Northeast, I realize Concrete Coatings, Inc. of Layton, UT has been the key to my success. They trained me, provide great products and support me in every way. The employees are genuine, sincere, knowledgeable and dependable. With their continued support, the sky is the limit for my business.
We have been in business for over 17 years and have seen some very good times in that period. Recent years have been more challenging because of increased competition and a general slowing of the economy. We are always looking for a way to differentiate ourselves and create more profit centers. Concrete Coatings, Inc. products have become an excellent way to increase business with our customers. The concrete trade has always been a large part of our customer base, so it was a perfect fit. Concrete Coatings, Inc. has supported our sales with demonstrations that have given our customers and our staff valuable and practical experience with their products.
Thanks to Concrete Coatings, Inc. and David Severson (Demo Dave) for helping us diversify our business with superior products and support from their employees.
We are beginning our fourth year as a concrete coatings company. My sons and I started small and today we are operating 2 crews and staying very busy. Concrete Coatings Inc products have enabled us to provide our customers with solutions to their concrete needs. Concrete Coatings Inc has guided, trained and supported us from a company doing $50,000 worth of business the first year, to $250,000 this year. We are extremely satisfied with the product but most importantly the integrity in which they conduct business.
