About Concrete Paint
Can you paint concrete? Sure, you can.
Concrete offers endless possibilities. You can do a lot with it. You can add texture, pattern, or a color of your choice. There are many applications available when it comes to coloring concrete floors, walls, and other surfaces. One of the most popular methods is concrete painting.
As the name suggests, it uses paints to add color to concrete surfaces. Paints apply to any concrete surface. You can use it in various concrete spaces such as:
- Concrete Basement Floor
- Concrete Garage Floor
- Concrete Sidewalk
- Concrete Driveway
- Concrete Patio
- Concrete Porch
Concrete Stain versus Concrete Paint
Staining and painting concrete may sound similar, but they are two different things. Both add color to concrete surfaces, but they do so differently. The significant difference is apparent in how they react to the concrete surface. Concrete stains contain acids. It penetrates the concrete surface and reacts with the minerals to produce rich, translucent colors. Concrete stains are long-lasting and would not peel or chip. However, it can be unpredictable depending on the composition of the concrete.
Meanwhile, paint is non-reactive. It fills the concrete surface pores to achieve an opaque, consistent color. However, it can peel and chip in the long run without proper preparation.
Concrete Paint Colors
Concrete paint comes in a wide variety of colors. Most manufacturers today offer between 30 and 40 standard color options. Some of them offer color customization services as well. The latter is a popular route, especially for homeowners who want unique colors for their homes.
South Bend Concrete Contractors Co works with reliable concrete paint suppliers and manufacturers. Thus, no matter what your color choices are, we can deliver. With various colors available, we sure have one that suits your taste.
Benefits of Painted Concrete
You can color concrete in different ways. But, nothing beats what concrete paint can do. It has so much to offer. Concrete paints offer several benefits, including:
You can easily paint concrete floors, walls, and other concrete surfaces using a typical paintbrush or roller. Since the formulation of most concrete paints is water-based, it is easy to clean up as well.
Safe to Apply
Unlike concrete stains, concrete paints do not cause eye or skin irritation. Since most concrete paints are water-based, they do not produce strong or foul odors. Paints are safer to apply, especially indoors.
The paint job is affordable because of its simple application process. Also, the paint can be cheap because of the varying options available in the market. Paints provide excellent coverage, so you do not need a lot to color a concrete space. Depending on the brand, concrete paint can last for years, which can save you money as well.
Broad Selection of Colors
As mentioned, most manufacturers offer up to 40 standards colors. On top of that, they also offer custom color services. Thus, finding the perfect hue for your concrete space will never be a problem.
You can achieve a solid and consistent color for your concrete space with only a few coats. Painting your concrete space will help make it attractive and look new again.
Concrete painting is very easy to maintain. You do not need to spend a lot to keep it looking great. You can get rid of any stains or dirt in only a matter of minutes.

How To Paint Concrete Floors
At South Bend Concrete Contractors Co, we follow a strict concrete painting process. As a company, we believe that having a process in place ensures we provide the same quality results to every client we work with.
It is essential to know that the painting process varies depending on the project. Although there are similarities, painting a concrete wall requires a different approach than painting a concrete floor. Painting new concrete surfaces also differs from painting old and existing concrete.
Below is our step-by-step concrete floor painting process to give you an idea.
Step 1: Choose a Paint Color
Before anything else, decide on the color you want for your concrete floor. There are many paint colors out there to choose from. If you cannot find one that suits your space, we can always have the color customized to your liking.
Apart from color, it is also essential to decide on the brand of the paint we are using. There are many concrete paint brands out there. They vary in prices and performance. On the one hand, some brands are cheap, but the paint does not last long. On the other hand, paint brands are a little expensive but guarantee excellent and long-lasting results.
At South Bend Concrete Contractors Co, we always provide you with options. But, you can rest assured knowing we have already shortlisted the best ones based on your budget and preferences.
Step 2: Prepare the Painting Area
Cleaning up and getting rid of any obstacles make our painting job more manageable. It allows us to work seamlessly and finish the job on time.
Once on the site, we clean the floor and peel off dirt, adhesive tapes, and other similar objects. We also check for dirt, water, and grease. If there are small cracks and holes, we fill them with concrete crack sealer. As with structural damage, we fix it using quick-setting cement. If the floor has already been painted before, we will remove the old paint. We may also use a concrete sanding machine to smoothen the surface if it is too rough.
Depending on how dusty or stained the floor is, we may sweep or vacuum it or use a pressure washer and mild detergent. We may also opt to vacuum the dirt. Regardless of the cleaning process, we make sure the area is clean and dry before painting concrete.
Step 3: Tape Off Walls and Baseboards
Using painter's tape, we tape off walls and baseboard around the painting area. Taping walls and baseboards are necessary to ensure we do a clean paint job. It also serves as a guide so we do not go over the line and avoid messy edges.
Step 4: Apply a Coat of Primer
We may need to apply a primer depending on the paint we are using. We apply primer to a raw or freshly sanded surface as the first coat. It serves as a foundation and ensures maximum adhesion. We also use primer coats to treat concrete and seal porous surfaces before painting them.
Step 5: Coat Dry
Once we finish applying the primer coat, we let it dry for at least four hours. We make sure the surface is completely dry before proceeding with the first coat. Otherwise, it will defeat the purpose of applying primer coats. You might not achieve its maximum result.
Step 6: Apply First Coat
Once the primer coat is dry, we then apply the first coat of concrete paint. But before that, there are a few things we need to do. First, we make sure the area has proper ventilation. Some paints may have a strong odor, which can be irritating or uncomfortable if you are exposed to them for a long time. Proper ventilation will help minimize the smell and its effects. Second, we ensure to stir concrete paint. Third, we paint the edges of the floor using an angled brush. We do this to avoid getting other parts of the area messy.
As soon as we finish painting the edges with a brush, we prepare the roller tray. We fill it with paint. We ensure not to overfill the tray as it may spill over. Using a roller to paint concrete floors makes the process easier and quicker. We carefully roll it over the floor and make sure not to miss a spot.
Step 7: Coat Dry
Again, we let the concrete paint dry for at least four hours before proceeding to the next step. When painting concrete surfaces, make sure that the weather is right. Do it when the temperature is warmer. Otherwise, the drying process will take so much time.
Step 8: Apply Final Coat and Dry Concrete Floor
Depending on the project, a second coat may be necessary. The process is the same as the first coat. Otherwise, we proceed with the final coating. There is nothing extra with it. We do the same way. We use a roller and roll the paint on the floor. The thickness of coats can make a massive difference in terms of durability and longevity of the concrete on the surface.
We let it dry for one to two days once the application is over. We recommend not using the floor until it fully dries. Otherwise, we may have to do some retouching. If you wish to add a design or pattern on the floor, we do it after the final coat. Meanwhile, if you want to add stuff like outdoor rugs (if the project is outdoors), furniture, etc., it is best to add them once the paint is fully dry.
Step 9: Clean-Up and Touch-Ups
Our team does not leave the project site just like that. We ensure your painted concrete floors are ready for showing off. Thus, we clean up the area. First, we peel off all painters' tape on wall edges and baseboards. Second, we check for any missed spots. Last, we sweep the dust off.
Sometimes we may need to do some touch-ups. Our team checks every corner to look for peel-offs and stains. If we find any, we immediately retouch the paint. That is how meticulous we are in ensuring we give you the result you deserve.
