Staining Concrete Floors

There are several products available to stain concrete floors. Some are one part and others are two part systems. They have these products at Home Depot and Lowes. I would suggest you read the labels on how to do this and then decide if you want to tackle this project. The directions have to be followed for a good job.There may be other and easier ways to stain a concrete floor, but you want something that will last and look good for a long time with out having to redo the staining every few years. You could also look in the yellow pages and have a professional do the job. (08/18/2009)
