Staining and sealing allow for customization of any of our products. When applied by experienced professionals, concrete stains combined with the realistic stone appearance of Recon textures can produce a wall nearly indistinguishable from natural stone. The options used to achieve these effects include waterborne concrete stains, acid etch stains, and hybrid stains that combine features of both, while sealing boosts the durability without changing the desired look of the wall.

Acid Etch Stains

Acid etch stains – features of this application process include:
