Acid Etched

Using Etched Concrete in Place of Other Flooring Treatments

The process used to create etched concrete§ is actually a chemical reaction between metals in an acid and the lime contained in concrete. This results in a more permanent finish than paint and, for that matter, carpet. There are many reasons to choose in favor of a hard surface floor. Allergies to dust and dog hair that can become trapped in carpet is a reason that influences many people. There is a list of pluses for concrete floors which consequently beg the question—is etched concrete a good fit for my home and my family?

Hard flooring choices are abundant in today’s market and it’s an extremely viable and durable solution to consider when reviewing replacement options for your existing flooring or evaluating choices in the process of new construction. Stained concrete floors offer a uniquely different look compared to traditional types of floor coverings. Frank Lloyd Wright recognized this attribute and used it more than 60 years ago. Since the acid etching process actually changes the chemical makeup of the concrete and is embedded in the surface, it is durable, as well.

Once you’ve made the decision to go with etched concrete in your home or business, preparation of the surface is critical to the quality of the finished product. To ensure a quality finish and subsequent bond of the sealer, removal of all foreign material and debris is a must. As with all products that require a chemical bond to the concrete, it must be completely clean for a permanent bond to occur. In some cases, it may be necessary to actually sand or grind the surface to ensure that remaining traces of oils and sealers are removed. Deciding early in the new construction process that etched concrete floors are the result you desire will give your contractor the opportunity to protect the new concrete surface during the construction process.

Maintenance requirements for etched concrete floors are minimal, but necessary. In general, the maintenance required is the same as it is for plain concrete floors: a mild household cleaner is typically all that’s needed. High-traffic or outdoor areas may require additional maintenance. In some cases, the sealer used to protect the acid etched concrete may begin to wear off. A good rule of thumb is when water no longer beads on the surface, it’s time to reapply the sealer.

Choosing a reliable concrete contractor is crucial to achieving a beautiful product. They will be able to assist you in color choices and design options for your etched concrete projects. Keep in mind that all concrete is different in its composition and will result in a one-of-a-kind floor.
