Poured walkways and precast stairs now uniform and beautiful!
We undertook a big project to blend long walkways of poured concrete and two sets of precast stairs into one cohesive look, and wanted to hide some chips and staining. They'd never been sealed so prep was simply a good pressure washing and protecting adjoining surfaces. The gray Colour Crete went on easily with a paint sprayer and the result is outstanding. We applied two heavy coats, probably heavier than intended, but it absorbed well and was forgiving in terms of not leaving lap marks and drying smooth even were it first puddled a bit during application. There are a few vertical drip marks but we could have avoided those if we'd done three of four lighter coats instead. Our application looks more like paint because we applied the Colour Crete heavily to address stains and irregularities on purpose, so it's a nice uniform deep gray color. The thick application of course requires more product but it's worth it. We had no issues with uniformity of color between cans, even after buying them at two different times and working through the large project over a few weeks, connecting previously completed sections to new areas seamlessly. I'm skeptical we could have achieved a semi-transparent look without the color being too thick in some places and thin in others, but I suppose it would come down to application technique. The Colour Crete does seem to have absorbed into and almost bonded with the concrete, which hopefully means it isn't likely to chip or flake, or show light scratches down the road. We actually get a bit of a "sneaker sqeak" on the smoother slabs after a rain, even before applying a sealer, but they don't seem to be slippery. Overall we're delighted and would use this product again.

    I've used this concrete coloring a few times for larger projects such as patio installs and walkways. Its super easy to mix in with the concrete and gives it a beautiful, rich and even color every time. I like this much better that the powdered mix as thisbis a liquid and stir in much easier and more even. If you want to add some color to your concrete projects, this is the way to go as anyone can do it easy

    I was hoping for to much out of this product maybe. I thought it could make some old concrete look like new concrete. It did not live up to my expectations. When I first opened the can I thought i must not have shaken it well enough and there must be more stuck on the bottom. However, i got a stick to stir it with and there was nothing on the bottom. The product is just really thin. It is to thin to use effectively on smooth cement. It would take coat after coat and I think look all uneven. Now, if you have some really rough concrete it seems to work OK on that. I don't have any rough concrete that really needs any work.

    Colour Crete is formulated to be thin so it will penetrate well into concrete and other masonry surfaces. Our stain will look different on smooth concrete and rough concrete, because the rough concrete will typically absorb more stain than the smooth. It's always important to test in an inconspicuous area and ensure satisfaction prior to proceeding with your project.

    Results are going to be highly dependent on your surface. Like any finishing project, the condition of the surface to which you are applying the surface is key. I really like the color. Where it absorbed into the concrete it took on a medium gray color - much like bluestone. I wanted to use this on a poured concrete foundation but because of the varying textures where the concrete was in contact with the forms, the rate of stain absorption varied. I like the product and the fact that it is a stain and not a paint. It is easy to work with and cleans up with soap and water. It is water thin so be careful of drips. And a little bit goes a long way! While this certainly looks better than the exposed concrete I am going to try using 2 colors just to get a variegated look. The instructions indicate that you can you can blend in a second color as long as you do not let the first coat dry completely. If you were using this on concrete block I think you would not have any absorption issues and would be very pleased with the results.

    The Colour Crete 1 gal. Gray Semi-Transparent Water-Based Exterior Concrete Stain was used on my front walk. The product went down fairly easy and is at it says semi transparent, this is not a solid stain so you will see the of the patterns in the concrete(we like that look it’s more natural looking). We followed the instructions and made sure the walk was clean, I power washed it and waited a day before I rolled the stain giving it time to dry. It looks great.

    Keep in mind this is not a paint that just covers the concrete. This is water thin with tint in it. I put it on one virgin pad and then over an existing painted concrete surface. The color on the virgin pad dried back to a very rustic copper color. Very cool. And it did coat the previous painted surface showing the flaws beneath but yet adding a new dimension to it. With multiple coats you can vary the depth of the color. Very nice application product. Water clean up. I applied with a brush but can be applied with a very short nap roller.

    I would recommend Colour Crete 1 gal. Gray Semi-Transparent Water-Based Exterior Concrete Stain for newer concrete. Our concrete was 40 years of oil and radiator stains. I pressure washed, scrubbed with de-greaser then presser washed again. Some of the stains came out while others were lightened. Applied 2 coats of stain. The parts of the concrete with the lightened oil and radiator stains looked better but not as good as the other parts of the concrete that were not previously stained with oil or rust. I think I should have painted it. All in all it does look better. It would look really good if the concrete was not previously stained.

    The " COLOUR CRETE (color) GRAY SEMI-TRANSPARENT WATER-BASED EXTERIOR CONCRETE STAIN " is a real nice product. I have used this product before to finish my laundry room concrete deck and it has lasted over 6-years with no issues. It is very easy to apply, goes on clean and coverage is good. I used both brush and roller and both worked and clean up was easy. One can covered approx: a 8'-10' pad. Looking to do my pool deck next.

    A nice and easy to use concrete coating. Looks good when applied to new or old concrete. Application is quite easy and it cleans up with warm water. Durability yet to be determined, but adhesion appears to be good. Surface prep is always important for a good paint job. A cleaner/etcher is recommended for best results but is not required. The gray color is just right for a clean bright finish. There are a lot of applications around the house for an attractive concrete coating. This product will improve your property very well.
