Integral Concrete Color adds a uniform hue throughout your entire concrete slab. Sagamore Ready Mix can blend colors at its Fishers location to create custom colors perfect for any concrete project. Integral coloring is an easy means of adding character with little additional labor expense. Colored concrete can be textured with anything from a simple broom finish to an elaborate stamped pattern.

A stampable overlay is a polymer-modified cementitious material ¼” to 1/2” in thickness applied over an existing concrete slab. Overlays can be colored, stained, stamped, and textured. A structurally sound base and thorough surface preparation are critical to the overlay process. See a photo gallery of concrete overlays.
Stamping, Stenciling, and Texturing
Newly installed concrete or cementitious overlays can be imprinted with a variety of natural looking patterns using stamping mats, texturing skins, or stencils. Antiquing release agents, available in a variety of colors, are applied to the concrete surface to add dimension and create a more natural look. Shake-on Color Hardener applied to the concrete surface increases strength and durability while providing even more color options.
Acid stain penetrates the concrete surface and chemically reacts to create unique variegated effects. Due to the natural appearance achieved, acid staining is quickly gaining popularity. Because the color is achieved strictly by chemical reaction, each slab reacts differently depending upon its make-up and finishing technique employed. Any new or existing surface which is free of sealers, grease, or oil can be stained. Non-reactive stains are also available.
