Acid Stain USA is your home base for decorative concrete materials, tools, and training! These excellent products will not only beautify your space, but also add many years to the life of your concrete while saving you money!
Acid Stain USA offers personal one on one seminars covering acid stain and dye application at our Houston location. I will spend 1-2 hours with you (and as many others as you bring) and take you from start to finish of a typical application. We will cover reactive acid stains, solvent based dyes, and water based dyes. We will cover concrete preparation, scoring designs into the concrete, proper sealers and application, and provide many time and money savings tricks and techniques. I will hook up a floor machine to get you familiar with what to expect. This time will be spent discussing YOUR situation, not a hundred situations. You will leave with a set of general instructions, the confidence to do the job correctly the first time, and my personal number for when you run into a problem. Acid Stain USA gives this mini-class whenever we can both meet and usually lasts about 1-2 hours. Product purchase at the time of training is required. We will dilute stain or dye, spray it, clean the surface, apply the products, and seal a small area. This class is tailored to your specific job!
