Acid stained concrete. Anyone had it done?

14 posts in this topic

Im thinking about going with acid stained concrete in my basement and pulling up the carpet. Anyone had it done? I was going to buy some laminate at lumber liquidators but the reviews of their stuff is pretty bad and their customer service is terrible.

Used to be a project manager and our firm bulit like 50 C stores and they used this in all their beer caves. Looks wonderful...like glass if done right. Durable obviously.

My basement has acid stained concrete as the floor. It is great.

Looks awesome and maintenance is practically zero. I have kids and have no worries of tracking in dirt or even spilling drinks. Quick sweep and mop and any mess is cleaned.

It does make the basement feel a little colder and industrial. So, if you have had carpet, it will be a very different feel.

One thing to remember though, you do have to keep it sealed. It is still concrete and is a pourous mateial. You should seal the floor every 2-3 years to keep it maintained.

I'd like to do this for kitchen counter tops.

Do you have concrete counter-tops?

I have seen it done in a showcase home with concrete countertops and it was gorgeous.

I used to live in a stilted house on the intercoastal that had acid stained concrete counter tops. It was pretty bad ass looking.

Hopefully soon. When we were home shopping I saw them and loved them.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
