Stained Concrete Cost
An overview of stained concrete costs and price ranges
The cost of staining will vary considerably depending on the complexity of the stain application, surface prep requirements, the size of the job, the type of sealer used, and your local market. In general, though, a basic one-coat application of stain with sealer and minimal surface prep will run about $2 to $4 per square foot. More elaborate stain projects incorporating faux finishing, multiple colors, and designs or borders created by sawcutting, sandblasting, or stenciling can run much higher (about $15 per square foot or more) due to the time and skill level involved.
When comparing the cost of stained concrete with alternative flooring materials, such as carpet, tile, or hardwood, don't forget to factor in longevity and replacement costs. Properly sealed and maintained stained concrete will last for decades and rarely needs replacement. It's invulnerable to tearing, gouging, mold, or water damage. Even if the stained surface wears after time, it can often be brought back to life with some touchup staining and reapplication of the protective coating.Other factors influencing cost:
