Stained Concrete Patio Cost Guide

The area being stained is going to determine the cost per square foot. For example, if the homeowner is just wanting to do a minimal slab preparation and no decorative stains, the price will be lower. Also, any larger projects are going to help lower the cost per square foot. If the homeowner wants to do a lot of areas in their home, they are better off trying to get an estimate for the project as a whole to help lower the overall costs. 

The Costs

  • Minimum Costs: $1.50 to $4 per square foot
  • Average Costs: $4 to $10 per square foot
  • Maximum Costs: $8 to $15 per square foot

Things To Consider with an Estimate

  • Does any existing flooring have to be removed or disposed of? This would include carpets, wood or tile.
  • Is there any glue or mastic on the flooring?
  • Are the corners of the room ready, or do they need to be set-up correctly?
  • Is there any sealers on the existing floors that will need to be removed?

These are the types of questions a homeowner will need to ask themselves when they are trying to figure the costs of stained concrete. If the answer is yes to most of the questions asked above, the estimate cost of the project is going to be higher. The cost is also going to depend on the type of stain work being done and how much is being charged per square foot. To get the best deal, a homeowner will want to receive a few estimates to determine which company will give them more flexibility with decisions that need to be made. 

The Types of Stained Concrete Options Available

Acid-based chemical stains were used for several years. They would only provide a natural stone, marble, wood or leather look. Now, there are newer products available that businesses can use to give surfaces more colors. Stains now are mixed with water, hydrochloric acid and metallic salts that are acid-soluble. The types of colors that can be added to surfaces using stains include:

  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Purple

Benefits of Stained Concrete Surfaces

Businesses will highly recommend having concrete surfaces stained when homeowners are looking for ways to update their surfaces. The chemicals used in the stain ensure they are long-lasting. The surfaces will be prevented from chipping, cracking or peeling. Many homeowners love the idea of not having to worry about installing carpets, tile or wood for their flooring. Also, they will enjoy better indoor air quality with stained concrete. 

There are some disadvantages to having stained concrete. Once the stain for the concrete has been picked out and put on the surface, the homeowner will not be able to change it. The stain is permanently soaked into the concrete. Another coat will not be able to cover the concrete in order to re-stain it. So, once the homeowner decides on a stain, that is going to be their only option indefinitely. The only way they could change the look later on is to have carpet, wood or tile installed over top. 

Areas of the Home that Homeowners Could Get Stained Concrete For

  • Concrete slabs
  • Tiles
  • Countertops
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Basements
  • Walkways
  • Recreation rooms
  • Sun rooms
  • Many other types of surfaces

Time to Get Started with Making Decisions

Once the homeowner has looked at their options as to what concrete surfaces they want stained, it is time to get some estimates done. The cost of stained concrete is going to be determined by the amount of square footage and the type of stain being used. If stencils are going to be used in order to give the concrete a design, the price may be slightly higher. However, the end results are going to pay off. One just needs to ensure they pick out a stain they know they will fall in love with since it's going to be there indefinitely. Stained concrete is a great way to make a surface stand out and look absolutely unique.
