This is a concrete porch stained with a water-based acrylic concrete stain from Mason's Select to complement the colors found in the home's brick siding. Diamond cup concrete grinding was done first to "clean" the concrete surface. Acrylic stain was used in this instance because this vibrant shade of red generally cannot be achieved with acid stain. The porch was sealed with a solvent-based acrylic concrete sealer from Sherwin Williams H&C. Glass bead was added to the sealer for slip resistance.
