Colored Concrete

Plain gray concrete is a thing of the past. Today, concrete can be colored in any shade imaginable.

WHAT COLORS DOES CONCRETE COME IN?

Earth tones that mimic natural materials are the most popular concrete colors among homeowners. But you can also color concrete blue, orange, green, black or other colors. Plus, many concrete contractors can blend custom colors exactly to your liking. For commercial projects, the color of the concrete can be matched to logos, school colors and more.

Concrete dyes produce vibrant color that enhances new or old concrete. They offer predictable and uniform tones and are popular for use with polished concrete. Learn more about concrete dyes.

Note that the base color of the cement at each ready mix plant and the aggregates can affect the color of the concrete-so samples should be made and accepted by the owner. Once approved, make sure that the type and brand of cement, the aggregate source, and the coloring agent will not change during the job.
