Because every home and business owner has a different preference, no two decorative concrete projects are alike. Whether you want to change the appearance of your floors, pool deck, driveway, walkway, patio, or some other surface, it is essential to choose the right color. Fortunately, products like SunH20, SunDye, and SunAcid come in a broad range of Signature Colors, as well as customized solutions.


For staining concrete or a cement overlay, SunH20 is perfect. As a blend of soluble polymers and liquid pigments, this water-based stain comes in unique colors of different shades. For instance, if changing the look of your pool deck, driveway, or patio, you might consider Mahogany, Coral Reef, or Amazon Palm. On the other hand, if you have a restaurant that attracts a younger crowd, colors like Pear, Sienna Rust, and Golden Harvest are ideal.


You will also find a host of beautiful colors from a product called SunDye. This liquid concrete dye works incredibly well for virtually any indoor residential or commercial space. For recoloring an existing surface, this decorative concrete product comes in 20 beautiful colors. Whether you choose Turquoise, Saddle Brown, Fern Green, Vintage Umber, or something else, your floors will pop. Typically, SunDye’s colors are more on the warm side, making them appear rich.


You should also look at the list of colors for SunAcid, which is an acid-based stain. This product comes in several standard colors, like Buckskin, Cola, Black, and Terra Cotta, but also a few bright options, including Blue, Green, Bronze, and Teal. Compared to the other two decorative concrete products, SunAcid is unique. As an acid-based stain, the color penetrates the concrete opposed to just changing the surface, making it permanent. Also, because the acid reacts with chemical compounds in the concrete, SunAcid produces a one-of-a-kind marbled effect.

Whether you choose a dye or a water- or acid-based stain, you can find a color that perfectly matches your decorative concrete project.
